Obituary

John Page's love for life was eclipsed only by his love for his wife, family, and friends. Born to Winton and Myrtle in Belvidere, Illinois, in 1946, John left the small rural community immediately upon graduating from Belvidere High School in 1964 and joined the Air Force. John was stationed in England during the Vietnam War. At a dance, he met Mary Cherry-the woman who would become his wife of nearly 43 years. John and Mary wed in 1968 and moved to Belvidere.

John Page's love for life was eclipsed only by his love for his wife, family, and friends.

Born to Winton and Myrtle in Belvidere, Illinois, in 1946, John left the small rural community immediately upon graduating from Belvidere High School in 1964 and joined the Air Force.

John was stationed in England during the Vietnam War. At a dance, he met Mary Cherry-the woman who would become his wife of nearly 43 years.

John and Mary wed in 1968 and moved to Belvidere. John earned his college degree, accepted a job at Chrysler, and later completed graduate school. During this time, John and Mary welcomed Brian, Andy, and Jennifer into their family.

John's family was the center of his world, and his wife and children were his biggest priority throughout his entire adult life. Tremendously supportive of his children, John provided his family with love, stability, strength, and everything they needed. He was a loving husband and the best father in the world.

In 2003, John and Mary moved to Arizona, where they enjoyed retirement by traveling and focusing on their growing family, welcoming grandson Wyatt in 2008.

John embodied the ideal of a person who is larger than life. Boisterous and exuberant, he was the life of every party. He was generous, always the first to help someone in need without expecting anything in return. He was an instant friend to everyone he met and lived for good times with friends-and even more importantly, his wife and family. He leaves behind a large community of people who will celebrate memories of him for the rest of our lives.

John is survived by his wife Mary; children Brian, Andy, and Jennifer; grandson Wyatt; father, Winton; and sister, Sherry.

Please celebrate your memories of John and share them. Arrangements under the direction of Valley of the Sun Mortuary & Cemetery, Chandler, AZ.

"We are so sorry for your loss. Our hearts are broken. John was not only a dear friend he was like family. We feel privileged to have known him and grateful..." Dawn and Dan Battista (Chandler, AZ)
