Loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle and cousin passed peacefully at home on January 23, 2021.

Herbert was born on June 27, 1954 to Herbert Day Sr and Mary (Bond) Day in Portsmouth, NH. He grew up in South Berwick and attended Marshwood High School.

After college, Herbert owned a dairy farm in Morrill, Maine for 5 years. He then moved back to South Berwick to work at Parker Hannifin where he retired after 20+ years. He loved camping, fishing, gardening, and spending time with his grandchildren, who were the light of his life. He loved watching his kids and grandkids play sports, and if he was not watching them, you could find him watching old westerns.

He was a prankster at heart and loved to tell jokes and make people laugh. Herbert will be dearly missed by family and friends who loved him very much.

Herbert was predeceased by his parents Herbert and Mary Day and his sister Lois (Day) Gray.

He is survived by his children, son Herbert (Buddy) Day III and his wife Elizabeth of Alfred, ME, daughter Amy (Day) Camyre and her husband Brett of West Boylston, MA, son Phillip Day and Alissa of Alfred, ME, and son Warren Day of Sanford, ME. Also, by his grandchildren, Ashley, Chelsea, Brian, Isaac, Andrew, Mason, Maddie and Teddy who knew him best as “Grumpy Grampy”. He is also survived by his brother Robert Day and his wife Laurie of Goose Creek, SC and his sister Judith (Day) Suitter and her husband Lee of Berwick, ME and many, many nieces and nephews.

There will be a private service for immediate family with a celebration of life and burial in the spring.

The Autumn Green Funeral Home is respectfully handling arrangements.
