Kenneth Alan Day, our beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend passed away
peacefully on March 4, 2024 at the age of 70.

Ken grew up in Port Jervis, New York as one of 10 children. He graduated from Port Jervis High
School and then enlisted in the US Navy. While in the Navy he was one of the youngest ever to
be promoted to Chief Petty Officer. After 20 years of hard work, sacrifice, and dedication to our
country, Ken retired from the Navy. He would then go on to work for the US Postal Service for
10 years, go back to school and receive an Associate Degree of Business, and finish out his
work career as a Realtor for Port St. Lucie County. Ken was an example to us all of how to work
hard for those you love and received many accolades because of his work ethic.

In his early years of service in the Navy, Ken would be transferred to Treasure Island, San
Francisco where he would meet the love of his life Deborah Beck. They were married on
Valentine’s Day of 1976. In the 50 years they have been together they have created a wonderful
family with two amazing children and their spouses, Angela and Brian, Kenny and Christie. They
also have four wonderful grandchildren, Carly, Tyler, Jackson, and Dalton who were everything
to Ken. He is remembered by his family as a dedicated family man who did whatever is
necessary to not only provide what was needed for his wife and children, but everything they
wanted as well. He never bragged or showed any pride in his own accomplishments but showed
tremendous pride in his wife and children’s accomplishments and success.

He is also remembered as a funny, sometimes even silly man… always the life of any gathering.
Whether it was creatively cheating at board games, or telling stories of hill cows on long
roadtrips, Ken could make anyone laugh. His grandchildren will best remember grandpa for his
funny comments, chasing them around with his superhero towel, and endless supply of candy
corn.

Ken’s favorite pastimes included bowling, landscaping, cruising, and shopping on Amazon for
his grandkids. Ken’s love of bowling was a family tradition as Debbie and his kids were all on
bowling teams and he even had a new bowling ball purchased a week before he passed away.
He loved being outside and working in the yard. He had beautiful yards that received many
compliments in both San Diego and Port St Lucie because of his amazing talent for creating
beauty with plants. There were a few times when random strangers would come to the front
door just to tell Ken how incredible his yard looked. Moving from California to Florida came with
the perks of going on many cruises. Ken and Debbie loved to relax on the ships, eat yummy
food, and sometimes they even let their kids and grandkids come along with them.

The final years of Ken’s life were full of many health difficulties. He spent many of his days going
to doctor appointments, having PT and OT exercises to work on, multiple surgeries, and several
ER visits. Through all of these hardships he never complained, never expressed how much pain
he was in, and was extremely brave through all of it. He also had the unwavering support of his
dear companion, Debbie. Together the two of them conquered so many trials and tribulations.

Ken is survived by his beloved wife, Debbie, his children, and their respective spouses; Angela
(Brian) Stoddard of Spanish Fork, Utah and Kenny (Christie) Day of Georgetown, Kentucky; his
four grandchildren, Carly, Tyler, Jackson, and Dalton; his siblings, Frank, Georgie, Dale Ann, Bill
Jr., Michele, and several nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his parents, his in-laws, and his siblings Sue Ann, David, and Jimmy.
Ken will always be remembered as a dedicated family man, a natural leader, and role model for
his children and grandchildren. We will miss him so much!
