Warren Hathaway Day February 20, 1928 - March 1, 2018 San Diego Warren Day died peacefully, of natural causes, in the family home on Second Avenue, just before dawn, the morning of March 1, 2018. He was supported by family, cared for with love and respect, in observance of all of his wishes, and visited by friends and neighbors. Warren was clear, cogent and ready to "go up the stairs," as expressed just before he passed. Warren was preceded in death by his father W.H. Day Sr. and his mother, Dorothea Sibley Day. He is survived by children: John W. Day, Robert W. Day, Thomas W. Day, and V. Lauren Day, grandchildren: Holly M. Day, Steven A. Day, James W. Day, Amber J. Day, Anjelika E. Day, Laurel R. Day, Noelle A. Day, and Melody M. Day, great-granddaughter, Tyler Day, and former wife, Linda W. Day. After growing up in Portland and Pasadena, Warren attended Occidental College, and graduated from U.C. Berkeley in 1951, with a degree in Criminology. He was commissioned in the US Marine Corps in 1951 and served as a Marine Officer in the wars in Korea and Vietnam, earning Citations and Commendations for his Units in both conflicts. Major Day retired from the USMC after 20 years in 1971, and moved the family to Japan, where he formed and directed several businesses, and served in leadership roles in the American Chamber of Commerce, and the Navy League, including President of the Navy League Chapter. After returning to San Diego from Japan in 2001, Warren enjoyed visiting friends throughout our world. In his last year of 2017, he attended Texas weddings of granddaughters, Holly and Amber, and visited London and Wales. Funeral with Military Honors will be Friday, March 16, 2018 at 9:30 AM at Miramar National Cemetery, with intimate reception to follow.
