Arlen Duane Bailey, age 61, of Pataskala, died peacefully in his sleep on Friday, April 17, 2020 at his home.  Arlen was born March 27, 1959 in Cleveland, Ohio to the late John B. and Glenna J. (Richards) Bailey.

    Sending you all COMFORT during this time, with the hope that you enjoy many of the wonderful memories of Arlen!

    It was a delight to have met and known Arlen! He was one-of-a-kind…deeply intelligent with a witty sense of humor! He spoke so proudly of his son; he spoke warmly of his family.

    His presence will be missed at the LEADS Pataskala Food Pantry! We’ll miss his questions, his great suggestions, and his genuine interest in others.
    Rest in Peace, Arlen!
