Obituary for Richard William Bailine

Richard (Rick, Dad, Pops, Poosh) William Bailine of Great Falls, VA passed away from complications of cancer and kidney disease, just shy of 70 years old, on December 24, 2018. His sense of humor, puns, deep love and devotion to his family will be forever missed! His wife, Deborah (Debby, Mom, Moosh, Amos) of 47 years can’t possibly imagine life without Poosh as they have been together since a blind date at Ohio University. Their daughter Stacy (Larue, Stac) and Bret (Gip, 1Tee) were the other loves of his life. Stacy always made him smile and lights up a room with her presence. Bret shared Rick’s passions for baseball and family. Bret’s wife Ali, grandkids Emma (6 years) and Cullen (almost 4 years), will miss their Pops tremendously. Pops played “Monster” and read stories to them. They loved their Pops.

Rick is predeceased by his parents, Geraldine and Sikes Bailine, and his older brother, Robert (Bob) of Margate, NJ. Rick’s oldest brother, Fred and his wife Annette, live in Seneca, SC. Rick had many nieces, nephew, and their families who are extremely saddened by his passing.Rick graduated from Atlantic City High School, Ohio University, Western New England Law School, and the College of William and Mary, where he received a master’s degree in tax law. His career spanned delivering groceries on his bicycle to customers from his Dad’s butcher shop, driving a laundry truck in summers, Sherwin Williams, IRS, KPMG, and McGladrey. Rick’s love of corporate law was shared with his many colleagues who totally respected and admired Rick’s knowledge of the law.

Rick’s passions were for his family, traveling, baseball, golf, and even washing dishes. As a member of Riverbend Golf and Country Club for 18 years, he joined the Retired Men’s Golf Group a few years ago. This wonderful group transported Rick to and from dialysis without hesitation. The Bailine family applauds these heroes.

Rick stressed kindness, honesty, loyalty, compassion, and love to his family and others daily. This humble, generous, hardworking, and proud man appreciated the little things in life and treated everyone as equals. He ‘walked’ in their shoes so that he could experience what they did.

Rick’s Memorial Service will be held at Herndon United Methodist Church, 701 Bennett Street, Herndon, VA on Saturday January 5, 2019 at 11am followed by a Celebration of Life at Riverbend Golf and Country Club, 375 Walker Road Great Falls, VA. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital or to Wounded Warriors.
