It has been my pleasure to serve you Mr. Bailey.

I  just found out today that a longtime customer and friend Chuck Bailey past away suddenly on February 24, 2012. The Baileys are from Plymouth Minnesota so I did not see the obituary until I heard the news today. I wish that I could have attended the memorial service for this great man.

Chuck and I go back around 20 years or so.  For over 23 years our family has provided the security for Chuck’s family. My father Jack Brodmarkle, my brother Ed Brodmarkle, and all of us here worked with Chuck.  I know everyone built a good friendship with him just as I did. 

Since Chuck lived in Plymouth, he would call me to find out what the weather was like, how much snow was on the ground, if  the ice was off the lake, or the get a referral on something he needed done. I learned quickly that when Chuck called we were going to talk a little business and then catch up on things going on in our lives. He relied on me for his security services, but also to be his connection to what was happening up North. Chuck knew everyone here at our company on a first name basis.  He knew my father, my brother, my children, my interests, and more. He was a really nice man who cared about people and what they did. He was always courteous, fair and had a great attitude.

The passing of Mr. Bailey has me thinking  how blessed we are here at Midwest Security & Fire to have so many great customers, many who have become very good friends. We will continue to provide the best security service for the Bailey family and wish them our sincere condolences on the passing of their husband and father.

I am going to miss Chuck’s phone calls asking about the weather. Rest in peace Chuck.
