(October 8, 1957 to December 26, 2019)

Claude Dailey Jr. was born in Birmingham, Alabama on October 8, 1957 to Claude Dailey, Sr. and Malinda Dailey. He was affectionately called “Gucci” by family members. He made the transition into his new life on December 26, 2019 at age 62.

He spent his early childhood in Birmingham. He attended the Toledo, Ohio schools of Gunckel Elementary (Jones Leadership Academy) and graduated from Libby High School, where he was the Ohio state high school heavyweight wrestling champion his senior year. In high school, he participated in sports and was on the varsity wrestling team and track team. Claude started working at an early age and pursued skilled trades in order to become a professional (journeyman) painter.

Claude was very proud of never smoking, never drinking and was proud of being drug free his whole life. He often shared with others these facts about himself and his father. Claude was an old fashioned, traditional, dependable, no-nonsense man. He was always the life of the family urging you to laugh and smile with his jokes.

He was a very loving, kind, respectful and devoted person who believed in God. His favorite words the past months: “Treat people the way you want to be treated.”

Claude was preceded in death by his parents: Claude Dailey, Sr. and Malinda Dailey. He was also preceded in death by three siblings: Albert Dailey, Richard Dailey and Frances Kaye Dailey. He leaves to forever cherish his memory: Claudia Dailey (Birmingham), Frank Dailey (Toledo), Virginia Major Taylor (Bill) (Toledo), Tommie Dailey Sr. (Birmingham), Malenda Hawkins (Toledo), Roderick Dailey Sr. (Toledo), two children and grandchildren, special aunt, Bertha Major – Tennessee, special cousin, Jim Voltz – Birmingham, Alabama, devoted cousins and a few special friends and a host of relatives, associates and care givers who he respected and for whom he showed concern and demonstrated love and respect.

Claude’s life speaks for itself. He took pride in all of the things that he did in his life. More importantly, Claude was a confident handyman who believed that he could build and fix anything. He constantly gave and gave to others. Claude lived his life in such a way that it speaks for itself. We are proud of him.

So sorry to hear of this great loss. We were raised up together in McClinton Nunn and attended Gunckel School together. Me and his Frances were also good friends. Claude was a funny guy back then too. May God Bless you all.
