Keith Bailey was born and raised in Houston, Texas. From the age of three (3) Keith knew he wanted to be a firefighter. At 16, Keith would visit his neighborhood fire station to hang out with the firefighters with hopes of learning the ropes. By 18 years old he was volunteering. Keith obtained his professional firefighter certificate at age 20 and was hire full time by the Houston Fire Department. Keith spent 30 years leading the Houston Fire Department as a Captain.
Firefighter dreams realized Keith began to experience the paranormal at the age of 12 after his grandmother passed away. He was very close to his grandmother and her death fell heavily on him. Two weeks after her passing he would wake to find his grandmother standing at the foot of his bed. His initial fear turned to calm when he realized it was his grandmother. As if to say, “I’m with you always.” she reached out and gently held his foot. And with that the encounter was over. From then on, Keith knew his grandmother was watching over him, protecting and sheltering him. A year later and after a tonsillectomy, Keith would find himself violently ill. A simple medication to control vomiting would put him in anaphylactic shock/cardiac arrest. Thankfully, an ambulance arrived to give him medication to reverse the effects before brain damage occurred.
During this event, Keith walked down a hill until he came to an open pasture where the colors where bluer than blue, greens were greener than green, and songbirds sang beautifully. He came upon a bench next to a lake where his grandmother was sitting. He sat down next to her and ask, “Where am I?” With her forefinger over her lips, she gently shushed and comforted him. When she finally spoke, she told Keith he would have to go back. With these words, Keith immediately began to hear his mother calling out to him. Chaos ensued as Keith awoke from his near-death experience. His parents were crying, doctors and nurses were calling out orders, and beeps from monitors filled the air. This event left Keith was a sense of higher calling without a purpose.
Still trying to understand the event with his grandmother, Keith would have a dream about his best friend, Tim. In the dream he envisioned Tim happy, energetic and full of life. But, the dream quickly turned dark. He awoke in horror with the knowledge his friend would soon succumb to injuries he could not explain. Within two weeks Tim would be hit by a car while skateboarding and lose his life. It soon became clear to Keith the purpose of his higher calling: giving voice to the dead.
Since these events, Keith has dedicated himself to better understand life after death with the sole purpose of giving voice to the dead. L-R Steve Tango, Keith Bailey, Dustin Pari, Grant Wilson.
