Daniel S. Day

Daniel S. Day died on Thursday, November 28, 2013 after a brief illness.

Born on March 11, 1934 in Boston, MA, Dan, son of John A. and Mary E. Day, grew up in Wellesley, Massachusetts before he and his family moved to the mid-west, where Dan attended Palatine High School, outside of Chicago.  

As a Palatine “Pirate” Dan was a standout (all-conference) athlete in both football and baseball.

After serving his country in the U.S. Army, Dan attended and graduated with a degree in Business and Finance from St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY, and subsequently earned a graduate degree from the Amos Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

Dan’s marriage to Hazel MacLean in 1962 coincided with the start of his career in banking at State National Bank of Connecticut where he quickly rose to become a Vice President.

Throughout his 25 years in banking, Mr. Day served as the Senior Vice President at Indian Head Banks, Inc. in Nashua, NH, President and CEO of Amherst Bank & Trust and, finally, as founder and CEO of Hillsborough Bank & Trust in Milford, NH. During that time Mr. Day proudly served as President of the Milford-Amherst Chamber of Commerce and as the Director of the Southern New Hampshire Association for Commerce and Industry. Mr. Day retired following a brain injury suffered in 1991.

His family would like to extend their deepest gratitude for the care and dedication of the staff of North Country Independent Living, headquartered in North Conway, NH, with whom he resided for the last 17 years.

More than anything Dan Day enjoyed spending time at his beloved island cabin on Lake Winnipesaukee where he was always surrounded by good friends and family.

In addition to his sister Mary “Sancy” Isham, Dan Day is survived by Sarah Warren, Sally Harmon, his three sons, Brian, Chris, and Andy, and eight adoring grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, December 6, 2013, at All Saints Episcopal Church, 51 Concord St. in Peterborough, NH.

Friends of Dan are encouraged to make a contribution to the Brain Injury Association of New Hampshire www.bianh.org/give.html.
