Mr. Willie Hubert Page was the third child born to the late Mr. Lonnie Page, Sr. and Mrs. Mamie J. Page. He was raised in Nichols, SC, where he attended Marion County Public Schools. He was a graduate of Palmetto High School, Class of 1968. He drove bus and played football. He remained a loyal member of the Palmetto Alumni.
He joined First Friendship Baptist Church at an early age. Willie was a dedicated member and served faithfully in any capacity where he was needed, one of which was working with the children cleaning the Riverside Cemetery in Nichols.
Soon after graduating high school, he was drafted into the military where he served in Vietnam. After returning, he moved to New Jersey, where he drove trucks as a free-lance owner and operator with his brother Don and later for his brother-in-law, Leroy Smith. Willie loved to drive and travel. He stayed faithful to the military, having served in the Air Force, Army, National Guard and Army Reserves but his heart was in driving 18-wheelers. After returning to Nichols, he began to drive for Expedited DriveAway, LLC, where he bonded and became very good friends with the owner, Mr. Winston D. Shell. He would also retire from that company after several fruitful years.
He was proceeded in death by both parents Lonnie and Mamie Page, a sister Tommesenia Floyd, brothers Roland (Tommie Jean) Johnson, Dan Page, Harry Page, Jack Page, James Edward Owens and Lonnie Page, Jr., several sisters-in-laws and brothers-in-laws. He leaves to reminisce fond memories, his daughter Crystal Page of New Jersey; twin daughters Crystal Page Pena of Bonita, California; SFC Dawn Page of Fayetteville, NC; three grandchildren – Luis, Marcos and Jakquelyn Pena of Bonita, California; a niece/God-daughter, Nakia Corbin (Kevin) and two God-Children Keith and Makayla Gause; three sisters Nellie (the late Leroy) Smith and Gloria Page of Nichols and Margie Laurence of Addisleigh Park, New York; three brothers: Leonzia Johnson of Nichols, Don (Ophelia) Page of New Jersey and Alan (Marverne) Page of Mullins. And a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and friends.
