ich werde dich nie vergessen. Dein Freund aus Deutschland...
I saw him last at Kenwood C.C. this spring, as I was watching my daughter Heather play an inter-club match. He had just finished playing and ambled over to the viewing area and flashed his usual dazzling smile and kind greetings. He watched Heather for a moment and said what a fine player she was and how he had seen her as a youngster on up through the ranks. We promised to hit some soon. Alas, it won't happen. Gone much too early. As others have said here, he brightened our lives with his positive attitude and colorful stories of a life fully lived.
Phil, you were one of the really fun people on bar association jaunts. I doubt that a replacement will be found.
Phil, you provided fierce competition as well as fond memories at the Volta Place Playground - tennis, touch football, softball, frisbee, and grey matter exercises. For the past six or eight years, during your Washington chapters and when you read your newspaper with your breakfast at the River Road McDee's, you and your conversations seemed to doubled the customer count. Having known you for some forty-seven years, you may know this, and yet I'll say it again; You positively brighten the life of every person you interact with, and you always have. We all have no doubt that you'll keep on spreading cheer in your new venue. Slainte until we meet again.
I was so shocked to hear of the passing of Phil. In Bethesda, we waited for his return from Florida every year, and from Maine after his vacation time there. He was humble, handsome and always happy to see us as we were to see him. I loved spending time with him. He will be missed so very much. My heart and prayers go out to his close family and loved ones.
Jim and Dennis ,please accept my condolences .He was a great guy and I'm sure you will miss him .
Jim and Dennis -please accept my condolences .He was someone special ..
We'd like to extend our sincere condolences and hugs to the Day family, especially Uncle Jim and Aunt Leila, Barbara, Dennis and the rest of the grieving family. May you find the comfort, courage and strength as you go through this painful time. Philip will be missed but not forgotten--his gregarious, compassionate and generous spirit will linger and live through his loved ones. He was remarkable, talented, and truly respectable, personally and professionally, who touched a vast number of lives and changed them to the better. Rest in peace, Philip. The Omran/Itani family.
Howard and I were so sorry to hear the terribly sad news about Phil. We so looked forward to seeing him on the tennis courts or at cocktail parties during our summers in Castine. He was always entertaining and a true gentleman. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Day family during this most difficult time.
O Our childhood memories.Fireworks on the 4th and stealing apples and playing whatever was in season.Rest in peace. Love Rich Strang
I will always remember Phil Day as a true gentleman.
To the family of Phil Day:
I had the privilege of knowing Phil for over thirty years. We were friends
as well as tennis buddies. During that
time we developed a close friendhip of
mutual respect. He was a sincere and kind friend and was always concerned about my health and well being, just as
I felt the same for him.
I will miss him deeply.

I was very sad to hear of Phil's passing from my mother in Castine, Carolyn Punzelt. I had the pleasure of dancing with Phil @ the Town Hall in Castine one year and he was very patient trying to lead me and so surprised when he took me to my table and found out I was married! I also had a most memorable time riding in his fancy convertible sports car in Castine. My condolences to the family as I too will remember his warm smile and laughter and my special encounters with him!
i will miss you Phil. Rest in peace.
Hello im am very sorry for you and your famlies loss i kno how hard it can be to have someone you love die and i just wanted to leave with you an encouraging thought from the bible at Isaiah 11:25... Where it gives us as humans the hope of the ressurection and to have everlasting life
Phil was a terrific tennis player and a wonderful person. We both had Maine backgrounds. My deepest sympathy to his family.
From almost a life time ago in the early 70's, Volta Place tennis courts...Phil and I were among the regulars there every week end. A really good man! My thoughts are with his family, best, jim
I remember him as a great basketball player at Brewer High School. Did he play at Bowdoin and can you share some other memories about his playing days at Brewer? We extended sympathies to his family, Dick Stacey, Brewer, Maine.
Our special loving relationship will never be forgotten.
Peace be with you. You will be missed.
A special member of our NBTC family will be greatly missed. Our hearts are saddened, but our memories are full of the bright times together. We cared very much about you Phil. Jill & Roger Hill
To James and Dennis...I was sorry to hear of the passing of your brother...I remember him when I was growing up as a kid in South Brewer....May he rest in pease...
Phil was a grand guy. He will be missed. Karen and Dick Waterval
A life well lived and a our Naples community will miss your warmth and presence. Our deepest sympathy and prayers to the family.
as Phil left my sisters, he got into the sunlight, and was smiling as much as could be, walked to the car heavy in heart and internal thought, i said, "Hey Phil you forgot your skateboard" he cracked up, i could see & hear his smile through the tinted windows. Cherish the happiness and laughter we all have. Godspeed Phil Day
We enjoyed Phils' laughter and tennis and will miss him.
Phil, my uncle and my mother's eldest brother... Thank you for all the wonderful memories of summer's spent at your cottage in Trenton, ME - 'The Camp'. You weren't always around, but your presence was always felt as you provided so much for my family. I'm proud and lucky to have had a guy like you in my life. You will be missed.
