RICHARD V. DAY

Richard V. Day, age 63, of Kahoka, MO, passed away Thursday, November 15, 2012 in the Scotland Co. Memorial Hospital in Memphis, MO, following a two year battle with cancer.

Richard was born October 18, 1949 in Monmouth, IL, a son of Kenneth and Jean Brown Day.

He and Marilyn Blender were married September 28, 1969 at Raritan, IL and were blessed with two sons, Ken and Jim.

Survivors include his wife, Marilyn, of the home; two sons, Ken (Dennise) Day of Grain Valley, MO, Jim (Coleena) Day of Kahoka, MO; five grandchildren: Cooper, Carter and Caton Day of Grain Valley, MO, and Aaron and Austin Day of Kahoka, MO; mother-in-law, Dorothy Blender of Monmouth, IL; father-in-law, Richard Blender of Rushville, IL; two brothers, Dennis (Karen) Day of Lomax, IL and Terry (Allison) Day of Newton, IL; a sister, Connie (Mrs. Wendell) Booten of Stronghurst, IL; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law: Sally Day, Elaine (Mrs. Mike) Hull of Monmouth, IL and Karen Skinner (Ted Schulz) of Rockford, IL; as well as nieces, nephews and other relatives.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Mike.

Richard served six years in the U. S. Army Reserves, receiving an Honorable Discharge on December 18, 1976. He farmed all of his life which brought him great happiness. He loved being outside and caring for his farm and doing all the chores that came with it. His time spent with his grandchildren was his greatest joy.

At Richards request, a private funeral service will be held at Wilson Funeral Home in Kahoka with Pastor Dan Deatrick officiating. Cremation will follow.

Memorials are suggested to the 4H Jr. Livestock towards construction of their anticipated new building.

As of January 1, 2013, all Wilson Funeral Home obituaries will be at wilsonfuneralservice.com.

Dear Day Family I was surprised and saddened upon hearing of Rich's death. I remember working with Rich at the sale barn and the good times we had after the sale getting coffee and a late supper. He, Tom, Ivan, and Robert were such good workers and I enjoyed so much working with them. Marilyn, you and Rich raised great boys/men. My sympathy to the whole family. Linda Heinze

Marilyn, Ken, and Jim, we are so sad to hear of Rich's passing. We remember Rich being Jim's first FFA president when he started teaching at Media and all the good times we had playing cards and watching Willy run barrels when you were our neighbors.

Marilyn, Ken & Jim, So sorry to hear of Richard's passing. I have so many memories of him when I was a kid. I loved going to work at the sale barn with my Mom. Richard would always let me follow him around in the back. I am sure I was always in his way. But, he never seemed to mind. What a wonderful guy. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
