Sunday, November 25th marked the end of a storied life well lived. Donald Page, a husband, a father, a brother, a son, a grandfather (boppy) and also a dear friend to many, peacefully fell asleep in death with his loving family by his side. Donny, as most called him, was born in Queens, New York on August 6, 1943, but was always a country boy at heart. As a young man, Donny was a cool cat, a fifties boy that loved rock and roll, hanging out on the street corner and if you asked him, the best roller hockey player in the world. As a boy, his parents, Roland and Marie, from Quebec, Canada would take Donny and his younger brother Richie on a journey from Queens to Canada. This is where he developed a strong passion for family that lasted his entire life. As a kid, Donny had great friends. They roamed the streets of Jackson Heights, Queens and ruled the neighborhood. This is where he met his future wife, Cheryl, that he refers to as the greatest handball player of all time. She was feisty and pretty and caught his eye. They spent the next 60 years together, first as friends and then as a married couple. Donny started his career working the docks in Newark, New Jersey and later became a truck driver delivering cars throughout the Northheast. Never forgetting his love for the North Country, Donny had the dream of moving his family from the city to the Adirondacks where he spent many summers as a young boy. With the goal of starting a farm, they bought their family home of 42 years in Stony Creek. It was while living there that Donny and Cheryl dedicated their lives as Jehovah’s Witnesses. This decision changed there lives forever. They raised their three children to also come to appreciate the truth about God’s word and they developed their own appreciation. Donny’s life was affected in a positive way about what he learned from the Bible. Helping others to know the truth it contains became the focal point of his life. He will be remembered by those who knew him as a man who was selfless, cheerful, caring and always displayed the joy of his God, Jehovah. Donny was predeceased by his father and mother, his brother, his beloved grandson, Shayne and other relatives too many to name. He is survived by his wife Cheryl of 54 years, his daughter Lori (Michael), his son, Christian (Carrie) and his youngest daughter Toby (Jason),his sister-in-law, Lorie and her children Jordan and Nicole, his two brothers-in-law, Russel (Kathy) and Ricky (Maria), and his two grandchildren Addison and Landon, (“his favorite human beings”) as he would so often say. *Job 14:13-15.
