EDMOND, Oklahoma – Funeral arrangements have been set for Pastor Alan Day, who was killed in a motorcycle accident Wednesday along I-35 and Covell Road.

Day was the pastor at Edmond's First Baptist Church for 25 years.

Keith Haygood was as close of a friend to Day as anyone.

"Alan was my pastor but even before he was my pastor he was my friend," said Haygood, Associate Pastor of Music Ministry at Edmond's First Baptist Church. "I've never seen a more intelligent man but especially studying the word of God and preaching it and teaching it to His people."

Haygood said the church members are what pushed Pastor Day to continue to get in front of the pulpit every Sunday.

Pastor Day's funeral service will be held at Edmond's First Baptist Church on Tuesday, February 22 at 10:00 a.m.

The church has set up a Facebook fan page where many are posting their condolences.
