Ronald James Day

February 18, 2005 ~ September 18, 2022 (age 17)


Ronald James Day, age 17, of the Bear Clan and of Longville, MN began his journey to the spirit world on Sunday, September 18, 2022. Ron was born February 18th, 2005, in Bemidji, MN, the son of Stephanie Day and Eric Johnson.

Ron had a way of making everyone feel safe in his presence. Ron had an infectious laugh, one of those laughs where you couldn’t help but join in. You could always find Ron at the basketball court or with an Xbox controller in hand. He loved to drum, dance, and be surrounded by the people he loved. He would give you the shirt off his back with no questions asked, just as long as you were good. Ron loved to listen to music, he was always dancing and singing. He lived life to the fullest and was always carefree and happy. He was kindhearted, caring, funny, and goofy, he was one of those people you were blessed to have in your life.

Ron is welcomed to the spirit world by his grandparents, Ron Day, Betty Jean Howard White, and Agnes White; aunt, Angela White; and best friend, Damar Flowers.
