Day M.D., MBA, Edwin A.  
Edwin A. Day M.D., MBA Lafayette, LA - Forever humble about the difference he made in so many lives and unaware of it until recently, Dr. Edwin Albert Day passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his loving family on June 27, 2016. Ed is survived by his beloved wife and business partner of 34 years, Stephanie Day. She had a huge impact on his life. "He never had a chance when we first met in the halls of Spring Branch Hospital in Houston, TX as it was love at first sight", she recalls. Ed and Stephanie were married in Houston on March 31, 1982. He is also survived by his step-daughters, Faith Allison Duncan, and Jill Duncan Yeates and step grandchildren, Grant Thomas Patterson, Garrett John Yeates and Grace Stephanie Yeates. In addition, Ed is survived by his sister Dorothy Law Day, his brother in law, Ron Law and his nieces, Mary Kathyrn Nikodyne, Nancy Day Rogers and nephew, Steven Nikodyne. He is predeceased by his parents, Edwin McPherson Day and Gertrude Opha Day. An accomplished cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon Dr. Day was born on August 10, 1946 in West Palm Beach, Florida. He was a long time resident of New Orleans, LA. At the young age of seven, Dr. Day was confident that he would one day become a doctor. He never wavered from this decision. In 1971, after only seven years of study, he completed undergraduate and medical degrees from LSU-New Orleans. Following medical school, where he was known as "Eddie", Dr. Day completed his general surgery residency program at LSU in New Orleans. He then honorably served his country as a U.S. Air Force surgeon from 1975 to 1977. Upon honorable discharge from the military he continued his training at Baylor Affiliated Hospitals in Houston, Texas completing a residency program in Vascular Surgery. He continued his training at Baylor and completed a residency program in Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery. He trained under the esteemed cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons Michael DeBakey, M.D. and Denton Cooley, M.D. in Houston, TX. In 1988 he and his family moved to London, England where he continued his training and became a Senior Registrar in Heart/Lung transplantation at Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Trust hospital. In 1989 Dr. Day and Stephanie relocated to Lafayette, LA. and began his private practice of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery. His true passion was the care and love of his patients. He was committed to the concept of continuity of care. He was always available for his patients no matter what. He will be remembered and deeply missed by all of them. In 1994 he succeeded in his goal to the high honor of attaining Board Certification in General Surgery, Thoracic Surgery and Vascular Surgery and was one of the first surgeons in Louisiana to accomplish certification in all three Boards. During his commitment to the practice of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery Dr. Day performed over 29,000 surgical procedures. In 2002 he obtained his MBA from USL and graduated with the distinction of Summa Cum Laude. His future plans, already in progress, were to attend law school and obtain a law degree. As all who knew him recognized he was a man of dry wit. Honesty and integrity were personal traits he held closely. If you were his friend you had a friend for life. His loyalty to his family and circle of friends was unending. It was commented by many that "Dr. Day loved being a physician and this could be seen at any time in surgery, at the hospital, in his office and at his patient's bedside." Dr. Day was a member of St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church in Lafayette. On March 11, 2016 he converted to the Roman Catholic faith and received much peace and joy from this conversion. In addition to medicine, Dr. Day loved to travel throughout the world with Stephanie. One of his goals, which he obtained, was traveling to all seven continents. While visiting Viet Nam amidst a U.S. Trade embargo in 1992, he and Stephanie met a U.S. military group investigating all POW/MIAs from the Viet Nam conflict. From then on he supported this team by sending them "American" meals for Thanksgiving and Christmas, videos of American TV programs and sports events and continued his friendship with several members of this original group of the military. His intrigue of flying and airplanes lead him to receive his pilots license in 1985. Dr. Day also enjoyed reading, researching any requested topic, theater and all animals, big and small. His love of cats is especially noted with his furbabies Rosie, Nonnie, Ringo, Silly, Singapore, Crookie Tail, Black Thing and Elvira. There was always room for one more should they show up on his doorstop. Stephanie offers heartfelt thanks for the extraordinary care provided by the staff at Lafayette General Medical Center, Hospice of Acadiana and St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, Houston, TX They would also like to thank Dr. Ken McCarron, Dr. Ed Lyons Dr. Chancellor Donald and Dr. Jatinda Ahluwalia who began this medical journey with Dr. Day and his family and were continually by his side in his medical care.

Marc Lampert, Darrel Johnson and Jason Cohen for their love and support during this past year.
