May 15, 1949 – April 4, 2013
Glenn G. Bailey, of Grand Island, president and owner of Elmwood Warehousing Co., died last Thursday in Florida, where he had a vacation home. He was 63.
Born in Buffalo, he was a graduate of Lafayette High School. He joined the Merchant Marine in 1975 and developed a love of sailing and exploring new places. He sailed extensively on local waterways.
Mr. Bailey also obtained his pilot’s license in 1981 and enjoyed riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
After obtaining a large building at 1800 Elmwood Ave. that housed Top Notch Provisions in the late 1980s, he converted it into warehouse space that he made available for self-storage.
An East Amherst resident before he moved to Grand Island in 2003, he maintained a condo in Bradenton, Fla., for the past three years.
Surviving are a son, Glenn J., and two daughters, Lisa Bona and Melissa Caccamise.
Services will be at 11 a.m. today in Lombardo Funeral Home, 885 Niagara Falls Blvd., Amherst.
