In Memoriam

Dr. William Carl Bailey


(from Dr. Luis Alberto Martinez-Frontanilla, APSA member)

Dr.  William Carl Bailey died in Denver, Colorado, on July 31, 2012, as a consequence of an acute intracranial bleed. Dr. Bailey was the first fellowship-trained pediatric surgeon to practice in Denver, and he founded a busy practice that eventually blended with the University of Colorado system in the late 1980s. His unflappable integrity served as an ever-living guide in the career of many young pediatric surgeons that had the fortune of being influenced by him. He is survived by his wife and life-companion Joan, four wonderful children including a pediatrician, and grandchildren. He will be dearly missed.
