Born in Benham, Kentucky on Aug. 3, 1953, Narshel Day lived most of his life in Utah, mostly in Moab and Riverton. Narshel died peacefully and surrounded by family in his home after a short battle with stage IV pancreatic cancer, Monday, June 8, 2020.
Narshel married Doraleen McComb Sept. 16, 1972 in Moab. They raised four children: Jennifer, Billy, Elisha and Skyler. He worked in the mobile home industry moving and setting up mobile homes for 25 years before retiring to Phoenix.
Narshel loved to laugh and have fun. He was a constant kidder and always kept everyone entertained. His motto was ‘work hard and play harder’ and he did exactly that. Lake Powell was like a second home to him as he spent as much time as he could with his family on that lake or one of the many others along the Wasatch Front.
He and his wife traveled extensively throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico along with islands in the Caribbean and Hawaii.
Narshel was preceded in death by his father, William Day; his mother, Josephine Truett; his stepfather, Paul Truett; and his nephew, Marvin Day Jr. He is survived by his wife, Doraleen; his four children: Jennifer, Billy (Josh); Elisha (Derek), and Skyler. Also his three brothers, Marvin’s wife, Bobbie, Melvin’s partner, Lanette (Angela), Randy (Crystal), seven grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
At Narshel’s request, cremation will take place and a memorial service will be held in his honor at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 13, 2020 at First Baptist Church in Moab, 420 MiVida Dr.
