Ernie Day

Ernie Day was born on March 4, 1937, in Eufaula, Oklahoma and died on July 13, 2021, in Tulsa. He was the third child of Ernest and Nora Bailey Day. The family moved to Muskogee when he was a young child. He was a proud member of the Muskogee Rougher football team. He attended the University of Oklahoma on a football scholarship playing on the 1956 national championship team and graduating with his Bachelor of Business Administration. He was then accepted to OU School of Law and continued on to complete his law degree in 1962. He then met his wife, Frances Moran Day and they married upon his graduation from law school. In April, they celebrated 59 years of marriage.

Ernie practiced law in Tulsa for 42 years, helping many families with estate planning. He enjoyed watching OU football and traveling with friends and family. He loved his children, seven grandchildren (who called him "Pappy"), and four great-grandchildren, as well as his lifelong best friends from Muskogee. The family would like to thank Diane, his loving caregiver, for her love and great care of our husband, Dad and Pappy.

where do I start with my memories of Ernie? Is it playing tennis, at Southwood, trips to Las Vegas, or playing golf with one club. I remember you taking the bus downtown vegas and meeting this interesting guy. You might have even taken him That was another adventure too. So many memories with Francie and the kids. I would love to talk to Francie but there are no white pages anymore so I dont know how to contact her. If anyone can help me out with this I'd appreciate it. tks sue
