David Wayne Page
May 4, 1961 – May 4, 2020
David Wayne Page, 59, passed away on May 4, 2020 at his residence in Grandview, Missouri. David was born on May 4, 1961 to M. Norman Page and Eldred I. Page in Goodland, Kansas. David was the youngest of six children. He was the only son, and it was with delight that his parents welcomed him on his father’s 41st birthday. Sharing that birthdate was very special to both Norman and David. David spent his childhood years in Michigan, Alabama, and Kansas. He graduated from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, with a Bachelor of General Studies. He also earned a Bachelor of Science in Power Technology from Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg, Missouri. David proudly served in the U.S. Army Field Artillery from 1983 to 1987, mainly in West Germany. For many years he indulged his love of all things automotive by working for automotive establishments and dealerships in Michigan and Kansas, most recently as a parts specialist. His favorite leisure activity was attending car shows and he had just begun to act on his longtime plans to restore some older automobiles. His loves of reading, cooking, and gardening were all fostered from early childhood by his mother, who never tired of sharing time and knowledge with her inquisitive son. These things, along with his adored canine and feline companions, completed his life. David was preceded in death by his parents and step-mother, Aleta Runkle Page, and his sister, Bonnie Damon. He is survived by his sisters Judith Kruzich, Sherie Page, Martha Marlin, and Laura Schmidt; his cousin, Susie Tobeck; brother-in-law Ralph Damon; 3 nieces, 4 nephews, 2 great-nieces and 2 great-nephews.
Memorial Service and Inurnment with military honors will be held at a later date.
