He was like a father to me, the greatest salesperson I have ever known, took me under his wing and nurtured me. To  Mrs. Page and the boys, may the love and the peace of God bind your hearts and minds NOW and forevermore.

I just found this. So Sorry for your loss. I lived down the street on Briarwood Dr in Athens Ohio. Gordie and I would play together and we rode the same school bus. I guess they never found him. RIP.

Long time friend from Grosse Baptist Church. Sill remember a group of fellows were at church picnic on Bob-lo island and saw a group of girls from my high school (Denby). We talked a little and that is where Gordon met Linda and the rest is history. Praying for you Linda and you family.

To one of my very best friends that I have known since August, 1950. Gordon has been my very faithful friend for all of these 68 years. How many folks can say that !! I have enjoyed Gordon & Linda so much during my life as my Christian buddies since we have shared many happy and some very sad moments from time to time. I will never forget our trip to the Hawaiian Islands together in 1961. What a joyous and memorable time we experienced together seeing all the sites and coming home with such a deep tan that my children didn't know who we were.

I feel very honored and blessed in living my earthly life knowing the Page family and look forward to a heavenly reunion with our members who have gone on before us and as we prepare ourselves for an eternity with our Lord an Savior. May we all live in remembrance of our wonderful friend, Gordon.

Mr. Page, I'm sorry you never got to learn what happened to Gordie before you left us, but you will get the answers you need now that you're with God. May He wrap His arms around you and comfort you from now on. My thoughts and prayers are with your loving family.

To the family of Gordon. Sorry to hear about your loss. Gordon and I were pledge brothers at Wayne. I enjoyed his friendship during our time at Wayne. May your thought of Gordon be happy ones as I remembered the great times we had together in fellowship. Bless you, Gordon. ppka

Richard and I were so sorry to hear of my cousin Gordon's passing. Growing up and living in Atlanta, our interaction with the family in Michigan was limited to a number of summer trips in various station wagons, but they were memorable. I dearly loved Aunt Bertha, and loved visiting her home where she would show me around her flower garden (that's where I got that bug!) I only remember Gordon and Gary from when they were already young men - all the more reason to impress me! I loved Gordon's "bigger than life" personality, and am still proud to point out his book to people I've advised about buying cars. Prayers and condolences to Linda, the boys, and the rest of the family.

Gordon will truly be missed. My husband Ron and I dearly loved this precious man. He had a heart of Gold and was such a blessing to our family. We enjoyed his singing heart in our choir for many presentations and services. Linda and family you are in our prayers. Until we meet on the side and sing a song there. God Bless you. All our love.

Dear Linda, Gordon Jr., Lance and Todd, Sorry to hear of your Husband and Father's Passing. But as the Apostle Paul tells us in scripture, "To be absent from the body, is to to be present with the LORD!" What a blessing we have as Christians, knowing that you will see him again in Glory!

Gordon and Linda Page and their three boys were nearby neighbors to us when they lived in Brookfield, Wisconsin, They were active members of our Church and respected in the automobile sales business. In those days, the country went through tough financial times, and Gordon had to shut down his Chevrolet dealership. With his positive Christian attitude, Gordon never gave up, and even wrote a book then. He alway advised people to have a "God-filled day". - Bob&Jane Mitchell & family
