Carrol Page 92, of Utica, Kentucky passed away on Saturday, September 16, 2023 at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. Carrol Rete Page, affectionately known as Carrol, was born December 16, 1930 in McLean County, Kentucky to the late Edward and Lena Belle King and was married to the former Ida Fay Edmonson. The couple wed on October 20, 1950, and their enduring love story became a cherished family tale. Carrol was a beloved father, brother, grandfather, and great-grandfather.
A 1949 graduate of the former Calhoun High School, Carrol was a man of service and dedication. He was a Marine veteran of the Korean War and a member of the Owensboro Marine Corps League. Carrol's work ethic was admirable, having spent many years as a dedicated salesman with Sysco Food Company. His commitment to his community was evident being a member of Utica Baptist Church and his service as assistant Fire Chief for the Utica Volunteer Fire Department.
Carrol was a man of many interests. He was a Mason and found great joy in hunting, fishing, woodworking, and gardening. His stories, often shared with a twinkle in his eye, will be remembered and retold by those who knew and loved him.
In remembering Carrol, we celebrate a life lived with purpose, integrity, and love. He was a pillar of strength to his family, a loyal friend, and a respected member of his community. His spirit of generosity and his unwavering commitment to his family will continue to inspire those who were fortunate to have known him.
In addition to his parents, Carrol was preceded in death by his wife of 63 years, Ida Fay Page, who died November 15, 2013; a daughter, Linda Joyce Page; a great-granddaughter Bella Marie Dillingham; his brother, Charles Page, and a sister, Anita Riley.
Carrol is survived by two sons, Ricky Page (Karen) and Garry Page (Karen) both of Utica; two daughters, Teresa Matthews (Danny) of Utica and Janet Cecil (Bruce) of Hartford; 10 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; and a sister, Patty Howard (Rodney) of Calhoun.
