William “Bill” E. Day, 55 of rural McNabb passed away on Monday, January 8, 2018 at Advacate BroMenn Medical Center, Normal.

Bill was born on October 9, 1962 in Spring Valley to Benjamin and Patricia L. (Pletsch) Day.

He was a member of I.B.E.W. Local 197 in Bloomington.

Bill enjoyed baseball, golfing and fishing. He enjoyed being around family and friends. Woodworking was also a passion of his. People close to him knew Bill to always have a wise word, song lyric, or John Wayne quote for any situation.

His beloved collection of catch phrases were better referred to as “Billyisms".

Survivors include his father, Ben Day of McNabb, one son Ryan Day of LaSalle
and two daughters, Aleigh Day of LaSalle and Sammi Day of LaSalle. Also his nephew and nieces of Putnam County.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Patricia Day, his paternal grandparents,
