JOHN BRUCE DAY John Bruce Day, 97, of Burgaw passed peacefully from his earthly life to his eternal rest on Monday, June 30, 2014 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. He was born August 17, 1916 in Sullivan County, PA, the son of Arley Adam and Anna Osler Day.

Cobb; grandchildren, Tara Day, Jon Cobb, Paul Cobb, Marc Cobb, and Merie Mirosavich; 10 great grandchildren; sisters, Shirley Warburton and Jule Driscoll (Marvin); and several nieces and nephews. Bruce was retired from the NC Department of Agriculture. He was a faithful member of Hopewell Presbyterian Church. Bruce was a man of honor, faith and integrity who loved and cared for his family. His love of nature and God's beautiful world was reflected in his yard that he filled with plants and flowers. All who knew Bruce were impressed by his indomitable spirit and his sparkling personality. What an honor it is that the lively, learned, and loving Bruce has lived among us for so many years. Bruce leaves a wealth of happy memories for us to treasure. A memorial service will be at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 13, 2014 at Hopewell Presbyterian Church with The Rev. Ralph Evans officiating.
