Chili Cook Off in Casanova April 2
We are all sorry to hear of the passing of Luther Lee Day, Sr. Luther was born in Fauquier County. He lived on the family farm which he and his brother, John, operated for many years.

He leaves behind his faithful wife, Mickey, his son, Luther, Jr., his daughter Patty, her husband John James, four grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

Luther was active in his church, Midland United Methodist Church, where he served in different capacities over the years. He loved his community and served wherever he could.

He was a member of the Midland-Remington Ruritan Club for 65 years where he served two terms as president.

Luther was always the perfect gentleman. He was a quiet man but he always made you feel that you were someone special in conversation with him. He was a pleasant man wherever you met him. He will be missed not only by his family, but by his church and many friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of their loss.
