Richard (Dick) Page
December 19, 1916 – March 23, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dick Page, 98, of Langley, B.C. on March 23.
He graduated from St. Edwards High School in 1934 and went on to work in his dad’s business, Page and Sons Construction. In 1939, he volunteered for the Royal Canadian Air Force. He was quickly recruited to be a fighter pilot instructor. He was honorably discharged from the service at the end of WWII and went back to his family’s construction business.
Dick was predeceased by his two sons, Richard Jr. (2003) and Jerry (1999). He is survived by his loving wife Sylvia and stepsons Darren, of Point Roberts and Jamie (wife Tina and children Nicholas, Anna, Matthew) of Ferndale.
Dick developed a tremendous love for Point Roberts during his vacations with his family at Boundary Bay in the early 1920s. From that time forward, Point Roberts always held a special place in his heart.
Dick loved visiting with family and friends, telling joke after joke, to the delight of all. He also enjoyed singing and had a wonderful voice. He was an extremely talented carpenter, and built homes from San Francisco all the way up to Fort St. John. Named after two British kings, Dick lived up to their bravery and courage to live life to the fullest. He was loved by all and will be greatly missed.
Funeral arrangements are being made through Alternatives Funeral Services in Aldergrove, B.C. A private service for family will be held at a later date.
