Ron was one of my favorite first cousins; Ron’s father, Fred Day, was a brother to my father, Walter Day. I have a lot of fond memories of Day family reunions that Ron attended – he was always so respectful of my parents. Ron and my mother, Irene, were like two peas in a pod who loved to tease each other, talk politics, crack jokes, and share a good belly laugh. I can’t remember a single cross word ever coming out of Ron’s mouth.

Here’s a favorite memory: Ron used to do calligraphy, so a few years after my wife Vicki and I got married, I sent Ron our marriage certificate and asked him to fill it out with all of our information. Ron graciously completed the certificate and mailed it back to me. His calligraphy looked great, but there was just one small problem – he wrote in the wrong date! Vicki and I still laugh about it.

Ron was such a good man: he had strong moral character, a strong work ethic, a strong faith in God, strong and skillful hands, a strong and sharp mind, and a strong, deep abiding love of family. He set a great example and I admired him greatly.

I will miss his emails, his phone calls and his presence in my life.

Mike and I were so sorry to hear Ron. As a child, Ron, Neeta, Uncle Fred and Aunt Dorothy would "pass through" to visit us in St. Louis and we always had a grand time. I also remember going to visit them in Arizona, and Ron chasing Neeta and I around the yard with a scorpion skeleton, cheeky boy.
I met Lorraine and the girls for the first time by taking one of the New York ferries (which was a really cool thing) to visit them (was it on Long Island??? It was so long ago). They both welcomed us to their home.
My dad and I had the pleasure of visiting Ron and Lorraine last summer, who have always greeted us with open arms and kindness. Ron was always a warm and happy person and so pleasant to spend the day with. He will be sorely missed.

I'm saddened by the news of Mr. Day's passing. We spent many hours in the car together traveling back and forth from St. James to Columbia and back. We had lots of fun times just catching up over the past several decades. I cherish those times. I will always be reminded of him through the friendships I have with his wonderful kids. Praying for comfort for each of you during this time. He will be missed.
