Michael Joseph Day passed away after an extended illness on May 29, 2014 in Massillon, Ohio. He was born on January 3, 1946 and was a 1965 graduate of Perry High School where he played football. He served in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War.

He is preceded in death by his father and stepmother, Clayton and Elmo Day, as well as his stepfather, Joseph Morgan. He is survived by his mother, Dona Morgan, brother and sister-in-law, Craig and Toni Anne Day. Mike is also survived by his nephews and nieces, Chad and Julie Day, Chris Day, and Joe and Toni Letosky; his beloved great nieces were his pride and joy, Mattie Day, Paige Day, Mary Jo Letosky and Samantha Letosky. He loved being around them as much as possible and always had candy in his pocket for them.

Mike also enjoyed his close friends from high school, the Canton and Columbus areas, as well as Florida, where he resided most recently. He loved nothing more than a round of golf and a cold beer, or watching his Buckeyes on TV. The family would like to thank all of the nurses and faculty at the Rose Hill facility in Massillon; Mercy Hospice; and the VA, who took exceptional care of Mike during his stay there.

Following cremation, a graveside service will be held at 10:00am on Wednesday, June 4, 2014 in the Sunset Hills Burial Park chapel. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Mercy Hospice, 7568 Whipple Ave. NW, North Canton, OH 44720. Arrangements under the direction of Karlo-Libby Funeral Home.
