Nicholas R. Day, 34, passed away unexpectedly Aug. 5, 2020. He will be remembered as a loving husband, loyal friend and the funniest guy in every room.

Nick was born in Belfast Sept. 24, 1985. He was a 2004 graduate of Belfast Area High School, where he was a skilled wrestler and friend to many. Following high school, he studied criminal justice at Beal College and later worked as a dental technician for many years. He married his wife and best friend, Megan (Richardson) Day, Sept. 15, 2013. Nick and Megan shared a life filled with laughter, and he would do anything he could to make her happy, from tapping maple trees in the backyard to learning how to foxtrot. They lived together in Belmont with their beloved Pomeranian, Tony, to whom Nick was the world’s best “dog dad.”

Nick loved animals and was loved by them; they flocked to him wherever he went and he was known for stopping to help turtles cross the road or assist in reuniting a lost dog with its owner. He had an adventurous spirit, and enjoyed thrill rides, traveling and frequent trips to his family camp with his dad. Nick loved Superman since his first pair of jammies, and he emulated him with his strength, courage and desire to seek justice and protect others. All who knew him loved him for his quick wit and kind heart.

Nick was predeceased by his mother, Lynn (Vigue) Arsenault, brother Christopher Day, maternal grandparents Charles and Mary Vigue, paternal grandparents Harry and Joanne Day, aunt Cindy (Day) Hart, and cousin Travis Day.

He is survived by Megan and Tony; as well as his father, Robert Day, of Swanville; brother Mathew Day of Belfast; father-in-law Michael Richardson and wife Joan of Lincolnville; mother-in-law Gayle Cmar and husband Michael of Rockport; brother-in-law Samuel Richardson and wife Casey of Northport; sister-in-law Lindsey LeMay and husband Joshua of Belfast; niece Natalie Day and nephew Jacob Day of Belfast; and many aunts, uncles and cousins who loved him dearly.

Because of unforeseen circumstances, the public celebration of life at the Belfast Park Pavilion has been cancelled.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Nick’s name to P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center, P.O. Box 707, Rockport, ME 04856.
