Tevin Maurice Bailey, 23, was born on November 23, 1998. He was a welcomed addition to the family of Toney and Robbie Bailey. He departed this life on November 25, 2021.
Tevin was a member of Union Valley Missionary Baptist Church, and a very talented drummer for the church choir for many years.
He was a 2016 graduate of Lonoke High School and member of the school band from Middle School through High School.
Following graduation, Tevin attended Arkansas State University and pursued a major in journalism. His dream was to work for ESPN, so he managed to get a job at the ASU radio station and worked his way into management. He also played cymbals in the ASU marching band.
Tevin had a very outgoing personality and made friends easily. He loved to cook, especially baking sweets for family and friends, and was working on starting his own baking business.
