Thomas M. Day passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family after a fierce 5-year battle with pancreatic cancer.
Tom was born in Brooklyn, NY and at age 9 he was stricken with polio. His battle with this life-threatening illness gave Tom the resilience and drive needed to face adversity and overcome the challenges he faced throughout his lifetime. Tom attended St. Francis Prep and graduated from St. Francis College in 1962. His strong ambition led him to completing his MBA from St. John’s University in 1967.
His career path flourished when he went to work for the Donnelly Directory. He had great success as a Senior Account Manager and was a winner of the Lifetime Distinguished Sales Award. Tom was admired for his strong work ethic.
In retirement, Tom loved to spend time with family and friends. Tom brought his enthusiasm to everything he did – loved playing golf, poker with friends, and had been an active player/manager with the BV Senior Softball league.
Tom had a strong belief in God, love of family, and country. He was a faithful parishioner of SS Peter & Paul Catholic Church and enjoyed volunteering whenever needed. Tom was a 4th Degree Knight with the Exton Knights of Columbus Council.
Tom was predeceased by his parents Francis (Frank) and Mary Day and son Kevin (Rebecca). Tom is survived by his loving wife of 47 years Janet; sons David and Brian (Vicki) and daughter Mary Beth LaMont.
