Obituary

Predeceased by his parents, Ralph and Bertha; siblings, Ralph, Kenneth, Donald, Walter, and Dorothy; son, Alan. Survived by his son, Kevin; 5 grandchildren; 4 great-grandchildren; siblings, Clarence, Lucille, and Mildred; several nieces and nephews.

Frank was a WWII and Korean War Army veteran. Frank, known by his family and friends as Whitey, was also known as the Mayor of Kansas Street. He was a self-employed carpenter having built hundreds of homes over his long career. Frank was a loving and generous father who single handedly raised two mischievous boys. He was often seen taxiing his boys along with all the neighborhood kids to Roseland Park, Sea Breeze Amusement Park, Charlotte Beach, and Silver Stadium. All the neighborhood kids brought their bikes to Mr. Day for repairs to get them back on the road again. Frank was also an avid bicyclist himself, who was always spotted riding around the neighborhood into his late 80’s. He was a jack of all trades who always did his own house repairs. Frank will be deeply missed by family and friends for his generosity and kindness. 

Friends may call Friday, 12-1 PM, at the funeral home (495 N. Winton Rd.) where a Funeral Service will immediately follow. Interment at Oakwood Cemetery. After the Graveside Service, family and friends will be gathering at Colters, 262 N. Winton Rd. for food and memories.
