Phil F. Day

March 22, 1939 — February 28, 2023

Phil Franklin Day, 83, passed away Tuesday, February 28. 2023 at Horizon Home Care in West Bend, WI.

Phil was born the oldest of four children to Marcella (Tavernie) and Duane Day on March 22, 1939. After graduating Oshkosh High School, he enlisted in the US Army and was assigned as a medic, and then later transitioned to the Army National Guard of WI. In 1964, he began work as a typesetter at the Daily Northwestern Newspaper and continued until 1973, when he started as a machinist at Mercury Marine. He retired from Mercury in 2001.


He met his wife, Judith Brink, in high school and were married in 1964. In 1968, Phil and Judy had their first child, Jeffrey. Three years later, they welcomed their second child, Scott, into the world. Phil worked hard to make sure they were taken care of.


Throughout his life, Phil wore many titles: husband, dad, grandfather, brother, son, uncle, and friend. He was an avid sportsman all his life, growing up on the shores hunting and fishing on Lake Butte des Morts. He instilled that same love for the outdoors in his two sons. He enjoyed traveling with his wife, boating, and snowmobiling with family and friends. In his retirement, there was nothing Phil liked more than spending time at his cabin in Rhinelander, WI, accompanied by his last German Shorthaired Pointer, Libby.


He also enjoyed spending time at the Van Dyne Sportsman’s Club, and having lunch with his friends.


He was preceded in death by his wife, Judith Day, his brother Kenneth Day, his father, Duane Day, his mother, Marcella Day, his sister-in-law Diane Day, and his beloved German Shorthair Pointers, Peggy, Dixie and Libby.


He is survived by his sons, Jeffrey (Heidi) Noonan-Day, and Scott (Erika) Day; his grandchildren Daniel Noonan-Day, Connor Day, Michael Day, Mason Day, brother Doug Day, and sister Cheryl (Robert Noe) Cheslock.
