 He was born in Bloomfield, Indiana to Mary and Homer Bailey. He was the youngest of seven children.  

 Chet was married to Inger Hindart and they had two children, David and Michael. 

 Chet was a captain in the Air Force and served 10 years with the Strategic Air Command. In 1965, he joined Pan American World Airways and worked his way up to captain. He flew for Pan Am for 26 years stationed out of San Francisco, New York and Berlin, Germany. Before retirement, he flew his last two years with Delta Airlines from New York. As a pilot he had the opportunity to travel the world. He loved adventure and had a lust for life. His idea of a vacation was surprising his kids by saying, “Pack, we are going to the airport.”
