UPDATE: Dep. Troy Bailey honored by LSO, friends and family at funeral
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - A funeral celebrating the life of Lancaster County Deputy Troy Bailey took place Tuesday afternoon.
The church was packed with friends, family, and members of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputy Bailey had 33 years of law enforcement experience, the last 25 of those with LSO. He most recently served on the civil division, and it’s said that even in tough situations, Bailey connected with people and enforced laws with empathy as a top priority.
Bailey’s passions were his children, his fiance, as well as biking, running, and hunting.
The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office released a complete rundown of Tuesday’s funeral service and post-processional for the late Deputy Troy Bailey.
The funeral service was at 1 p.m. at Horizons Community Church (3200 Grainger Pkwy), just northeast of 27th and Yankee Hill in south Lincoln.
Following the conclusion of the funeral service, there was a ceremony outside the church.
A processional from the church to the Lincoln Memorial Funeral Home took place around 2 p.m.
Deputy Bailey will be taken to his final resting place in Trenton, Nebraska on Wednesday.
Deputy Bailey’s sister, Tiffanie, commented on one of LSO’s Monday Facebook posts, saying, “I would like to personally thank the Lancaster Sheriff’s Department for everything you have done for my brother Troy and our family. It means so much to us that he worked for a great Department and had so many wonderful people working with him. He is going to be so greatly missed by so many people who he did awesome things for. We are praying for all of you at LSO, just as we know you are praying for our family.”
