James C. Day Jr. Obituary
James C. Day, Jr.

AGE: 79 • Wilmington

James C. Day, Jr., age 79, of Wilmington, DE, went home to be with the Lord Thursday, July 6, 2017. Jim proudly served his country in the US Air Force. He was devoted to his faith and took comfort in reading the Bible. Family was important to him and he looked forward to them all being together - especially during the holidays. Jim was an avid Mets fan and enjoyed visiting Delaware Park. He liked listening to Big Band music (Glenn Miller being a favorite) and watching The Price is Right and Let's Make a Deal.

Jim is survived by his children: James Day III (Bernadette), Christopher Day (Ruth), John Day (Barbara), Shannon Trego, and Rita Sartin (Jonathan); ex wife and cherished friend, Antonette Day; brothers, Roger, Bruce and Kenneth Day; 14 grandchildren; 21 great grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, James Day, Sr.; mother, Rita Frank; and brother, Walter Day.

A visitation will be held Friday, July 14, 2017 from 1:30-3 PM at Strano & Feeley Family Funeral Home, 635 Churchmans Rd., Newark, DE 19702 followed by a service in celebration of Jim's life at 3 PM.
