Anthony M. Day • October 25, 2018
Anthony M Day “Ant” or “Finny” as he was known by family and friends, went to live with Jesus on October 25th, 2018. Anthony was born on August 4th, 1978.
Anthony is preceded in death by his Father, Dale William Day, paternal Grandparents, Annie Lee Day and John Alcus Day, a Sister Frances Day, and maternal Grandmother Barbara J Geer.
Anthony is survived by his Son, Anthony Day Jr., maternal Grandfather, Fred B. Geer, Mother, Sandra Geer, Brothers, Daniel Bishop Day and Dale William Day Jr. , Sister, Tracy Leigh Burgess (Jonathon), and many more Aunts Uncles, Cousins, Nieces and Nephews who loved him dearly and will miss him greatly.
Nearest and dearest to Anthony was his son. He said the day Tony was born, his life began. Ant had a tender heart, and at times was the most caring, loving, soul anyone could hope to know.
Anthony loved taking walks in the woods, and fishing when he got a chance. He was a Simple Man, not into technology like the rest of us have grown accustomed to. His natural ability to work with his hands and his love of horticulture allowed him to grow almost anything. He planted a garden in his Pawpaw’s back yard and tended several others throughout his adult life. One passion that carried over from his youth was picking flowers. Wild flowers were his favorite as he would always bring a bouquet of flowers to his Memaw, every time he would visit her.
Though we will forever miss our “Ant” this side of heaven, he lives on in the hearts of family and friends until we see him again.
Visitation begins at 1:00 pm on October 29th at Pensacola Memorial Gardens, with memorial and internment immediately following. Pallbearers are Geoff Geer, Jarred Geer, Jonathan Burgess, Jay Harding, Daniel Day, and Brad Gardner.
