Obituary

I was born Paul Franklin Bayless on October 18, 1952 in Odessa, Mo. and I went to be with our Lord on March 12, 2020.

My entire life I have been surrounded by the most wonderful people. God gave me the best parents Clyde and Louise (Fizer) Bayless. I am the baby of 10 children and as a family we spent a lot of time playing softball, horseshoes, and ultra-competitive card game of pitch. I have always looked up to my older brothers David his wife Kathy. and Jim with his wife Carolyn. I have three great sisters Betty Joe Morris., Maggie Barresi, and Janie Terry with her husband Jerry. I am now with my siblings Clyde Jr., Calvin, Cecil, Buford and my sister Ruth Faye. I am also with my hunting and fishing buddy brother-in-law Darrell, my brothers-in-law Bob, Leo and sisters-in-law Ernalea and Candy.

On May 27, 1972, I married the love of my life Denise Walters. We have had the most amazing life together; our hearts are one. In 1974 we both accepted Jesus as our Savior. Two of my greatest blessing in life are two of the most my amazing sons a man could ever hope for in life. My oldest Matthew with my daughter-in-law Brenda. and my baby Christopher. The greatest reward God has given me was becoming a PaPa to 3 great kids Sydney, Emerson (my Rosie), and Wyatt. Others I have left behind are my mother-in-law Pauline Nelson, brother-in-law Mike Walters, sisters-in-law Barbara and Jeanie Bayless and the greatest nephews and nieces.

My prayer is for all of you is that you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior so we can meet again for the great reunion. Love you!

The family will have a Celebration of Life service at a later date.

Bayless Family: The last time we saw Paul was 5 months ago. True to his character, his first words were to inquire about our health. Never mind that he was the one hospitalized. His genuine devotion to others has seldom been matched. We have lost more than tribe, we have lost family.

When I get to Heaven. This is one man I am going to look up, where we all will be known as we are known. A new name in Glory! Most have no idea what we have signed up for when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior! Heaven has it all and even more and we travel at the speed of thought. We are forever young. The food is best ever. No weight gain, no food allergies, no bathrooms. We will love our pets there who actually can talk to us and dine with us. God thinks of it all and His love for his kids is mind boggling. Can you imagine your mansion overlooking one of Heavens many waterfalls, where you can take a dive. You can't get hurt. No night. All is perfect and we love singing praises to God most high. If we could only see Paul now. He see's us! Thank you Jesus for taking care of our loved ones. Giving us Peace, Comfort and Guiding our every step! I love reading in the Passion version Psalms 139 and seeing how God loved us before He breathed us into our mothers womb and He wrote a book about each of us, that our Angel has read. It will be worth it all when we see Him face to face! Only Believe!
