Eric R. Day

Donate to the Eric R. Day Memorial Fund

Eric R. Day earned his Master’s Degree in Public Policy from Suffolk University. He worked for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, helping fellow citizens understand their unemployment benefits. A Maine native, he adopted Boston as his home and loved it dearly the rest of his life.

Eric was a one-man Board of Tourism who knew every park, bit of history, and enjoyable place in the city. A patriot, Eric loved his country. He was also a patriot of the city of Boston. He was particularly proud of the men and women of the Boston Police Department. He felt they are the finest police force in the country.

Eric died very young, leaving behind a spouse, other family and many friends who miss him. We know Eric’s best days were ahead of him, and this tragic loss can have a happy ending. Eric Day has one more act of service to give the city of Boston.

Family, friends, supporters of BPD, and people concerned for the children of Boston are joining forces to raise funds for the Eric R. Day Fund for the Boston Police Athletic/Activities League (BPAL). BPAL fosters a culture of trust and respect between police, youth and the community through interactive educational, athletic and social activities designed to reduce crime, promote character development and improve educational outcomes. The BPD officers who volunteer their time to help these kids deserve all our support.
