David M. Day, 83, of Indianapolis and formerly of Madison, Indiana, died Thursday, March 25, 2021.
He was born Jan. 28, 1937, in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, to William and Zola Rayburn Day, and grew up in several towns in Indiana — including Madison — due to his father’s employment. He graduated from Greencastle High School and attended General Motors Institute. He married Rosemary McQueen on Feb. 14, 1958, and they had two sons and four daughters. He retired from National City Bank — originally Merchant’s National Bank — as a loan officer. Shortly after retirement he did a mission trip to Central Africa Republic to repair missionary vehicles and later did a second mission trip to France to work on housing for missionaries. During retirement, he worked several years for Enterprise Car Rental and volunteered 12 years at St. Vincent Hospital in the Outpatient Department. He enjoyed buying and selling used cars, classical music — especially organ music — and riding his motorcycle. He loved being outside and nature, especially the sun, mountains, rivers, ocean and palm trees. He enjoyed camping and travel and a highlight was a cruise through the Panama Canal. He enjoyed reading his Bible and was a member of CrossBridge Baptist Church in Indianapolis.
Survivors include his wife, Rosemary Day; his sons Steve Day and David Day; his daughters Kathy Classen, Susan Clark, Marilyn Gately and Christina Calvert; his sister, Peggy Johnson; and 13 grandchildren, four great grandchildren and other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Paul Day.
Funeral services are at noon on Thursday, April 1, at CrossBridge Baptist Church, 4309 W. 79th St., Indianapolis, with visitation from 11 a.m. Thursday until time of services.
Memorial contributions may be made to CrossBridge Baptist Church, Moody Radio (moodybible.org) or to Serge missions to account No. 51005 in support of the work of his granddaughter overseas.
