Need obit to confirm Edward T Bailey

Need obit to confirm Edward T Bailey

Classification: Query
Surnames: Bailey
If anyone could, help me with an obituary lookup or an online newspaper that dates back to 2003, I would appreciate it. I am helping a friend rediscover her father, Edward T Bailey Jr (born 27 April 1922 in Vermont. Parents are Edward Sr and Doris).

I believe the man that I have been trailing died in either Fort Kent, ME or Madawaska, ME on 21 July 2003. Via Ancestry, the US Veterans Gravesites have the right birth date and he's buried in Wells River, VT where his family was from at the time of his birth. I have a US public records index that gives the right birthdate where he's living in Madawaska in 1990 and a obituary daily times index (Publication date 23 July 2003) pointing to him as well. Those also from Ancestry, but I would really like to confirm or deny that he's who I am looking for so I can give my friend the piece of mind that she has been looking for for a few decades.

(Possible) Died - 21 July 2003, Fort Kent or Madawaska, ME
(Possible) Buried - Wells River, VT
Parents - Edward T Baily Sr and Doris (Lucie/Cleighton)

"but I would really like to confirm or deny that he's who I am looking for"

There are EIGHT pieces of consistent data available from
ancestry.com [see below]*

Here types a man who
1)has a degree in Mathematics where proofs have
extraordinarily high standards
2 has been doing genealogical research for almost 30 years
3)has very high standards for genealogical "proof" as well (not quite like Math, of course, but very, very high

I don't think I have EVER seen a collection of data that presents a more compelling case
of genealogical proof.

What am I missing?

Thank you for sharing those tidbits, but I already have all of those things. If this individual was for me, I would gladly conclude all of those are who I am looking for. However, it is not for me, it is for a friend who will be entering this data into the LDS church (where she is a member of that faith). I want to give her all I can, obit included if able, to show who he is, so all the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed.
