“It is with profound sadness we mourn the loss of Charleston City Councilman John Kennedy Bailey—a devoted husband, doting father, loving son, loyal brother, and a dear friend to many including my husband and me,” Charleston Mayor Amy Goodwin said in a statement.
“I spent many a night talking with John in the City Hall parking garage long after council meetings had ended. We’d talk about how we could fix things—make things better. He was funny and fun. He was relaxed but motivated. He was someone you wanted on your team, and we loved him so very much,” she said.
“John was an incredible councilman—always leading with integrity, honor and passion. With his keen intellect, calm voice, and measured approach, John always treated his fellow council members with kindness—even on the most difficult issues. Our thoughts and prayers are with John’s wife Holly, sons Jack and Brooks, daughter Lisette, brother David, sister Anne, father former West Virginia State Treasurer Larrie Bailey and mother, Joyce.”
May God grant his soul eternal rest.
