Bruce Day was the original cover art artist for Adventures in Odyssey.


Bruce Charles Day died 11-20-15 four years after a stroke. He is the first of five Day siblings to enter into glory. He was born in Bell, CA, 8-3-39 to Elmo and Marian Kirch Day. Bruce graduated 1957 from Pomona High School, and entered the U.S. Army, serving 3 years. He played football at the U of Utah, where he met his wife, Carrol Allen, and they were married 12-27-64 after he had played some professional football. Bruce was an illustrator for 45 years, which was also his hobby. He delighted in doing cartoons to make people laugh, and some to make people think. Another hobby was doing puppets with his children to entertain and teach others. Bruce's very greatest accomplishment was at age 32 when, while listening to Christian radio, the speaker helped him realize he was a sinner in need of a Savior. He bowed his knee to Jesus Christ for forgiveness, and received free and full salvation. He grew to love the Lord very, very much and was happy to help his children and others know his Savior. Bruce is waiting for all his loved ones to meet him in heaven: his wife, Carrol; children and families: Amber Day (Kevin Flynn), Boise; Jubal and Mary Day, Ronin and Caden, Ft.Bragg, N.C.; Scarlet and Marc Vandenbos, Rowan and Vincent, Meridian; Roman Day, Seattle, WA; Summer and Aaron Vandenbos, Jubalee, Tremain, Capri, Aspen, and Royal, of San Antonio, TX. His siblings: Doug Day (Jena)Temecula, CA; Barbara Morris (Chuck) Bend, OR.; Steve Day (Glenda) Phelan, CA; Thomas Day, Upland, CA A viewing will be held Sunday, Nov. 29, 4 to 6 p.m. at Cloverdale Funeral Home.
