September 6, 1932 – February 7, 2021
It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Clifford Allan (Cliff) Day at Hearthstone Manor on Sunday, February 7th, 2021 at the age of 88 years.
Cliff was born on September 6th, 1932 in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan and came to Vernon as a young boy. He received all of his schooling in Vernon and once completed, he went to UBC to become an electrical engineer.
After graduation from UBC Cliff went to Ontario to work until the Avro Arrow project was scrapped. He then returned to B.C. and worked at UBC for a time before joining BC Hydro. There Cliff worked in management in the northern part of the Province from areas stretching from Williams Lake to Fort St. John to Prince Rupert. His last years with BC Hydro were spent in Vernon as a consultant to big power users. Cliff never married and his love of the great outdoors was so evident for he spent many hours dedicating himself in the aiding of conservation efforts.
Cliff is survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Clara (Henry) Rodrigue; his brother and sister-in-law, Herb (Carol) Day, all of Vernon, B.C.; and many nieces, nephews and cousins living throughout Canada. He was preceded in death by his Mom and Dad, Annie and Sidney Day.
In respecting Cliff’s wishes, he was cremated and due to the current pandemic the family are not able to have any gathering at this time. It is hoped that in the near future family and friends will be able to come together to celebrate Cliff’s life when it is safe to do so.
Cliff resided at Hearthstone Manor for the past two years and his family want to take this opportunity to thank all the staff for the love and care they gave to him while he was with them. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Cliff to the B.C. Heart & Stroke Foundation, #4-1551 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, B.C. V1Y 9M9
Those who would like to send messages of condolence to the family are invited to do so through email@example.com
