Ryan Lyle Bailey, 36, passed away on October 27, 2020 after a 9 month battle with cancer. He was born in Kingsville, TX on June 28, 1984 to Steve and Cindy (Bennett) Bailey of Seguin,TX.
He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents William Jasper Bailey and Billie Jean Baker Pickens and maternal grandfather Richard Tex Bennett.
Left to cherish his memories are his parents, his brother Cody Marx Bailey of Mexico City, MX, his sister Kelly Bailey of Broomfield, CO. and his maternal grandmother Mrs. Melba (Raymond) Ballard of Seguin, TX.
Ryan was incredibly curious about the world around him. From the possibility of humans one day colonizing Mars to how epigenetics affect each of us, he was always learning. This passion drove him to excel in the field of bio-engineering and medical research. He received a B.A. in Biology and in Psychology from California State University and a Masters of Bioscience from KGI in Claremont, CA. He was working as a project manager for Astra Zeneca Pharmaceuticals in Boston, MA doing cancer research when he was diagnosed with cancer of unknown primary in January.
In addition to his dedication to research he was an avid sports fan. He loved watching the Saints and Spurs with his Dad and brother. He also loved going to LA Galaxy games with his friends.
As passionate as he was about science, it should come of no surprise he wanted his body donated to medical research. Due to Covid 19, we will have a celebration of his life in Seguin in the spring.
