Where do I begin? As the child growing up? Or the man who served under him?
Charlie was a friend, mentor, co-conspirator and cop all in one.
The friendly cop as I was a kid growing up in Del City.
My first Sergeant, when I joined the Department as a know-nothing communications officer, years later.
A fellow prankster, who found a kindred soul.
But most of all, a cop.
Oddly enough, the day he passed, my wife (Who worked with us briefly, before we were us) and I were telling Charlie Stories, remembering pranks he and I pulled on each other and had pulled on us by others. Laughter filled the house with happy memories of times gone by.
Followed by a sad call the next day.
Save me a place Charlie. I think I still have some bottle rockets I'll try to sneak in.....
One of my best friends! I will always remember our years working together at Remington Park. Rest in peace my friend!
Our deepest sympathy to the Day family many good memories RIP Sgt Charlie Day from the Beal Family you will be miss.
Charlie was my sergent when I started work at Del City Police Depaertment, I remember good times and not so good times, mostley good times, Chalie was a good and kind hearted man, I enjoyed every hour I spent with Charlie.
you were always "my Sargent" I will always remember your advice, your wisdom, your humor.
Del City Police department and Del City are lesser place's now.
