William Michael “Bill” Page of Greensboro and Jewell, Georgia passed away in his home in Port Armor June 22. A memorial service was held in Greensboro on Friday, June 25, with several of his friends paying tribute to him and celebrating his life. Born in the Chicago area but moving to Georgia at age three, Bill spent his early years in South Georgia and attended high school in Madeira Beach, Florida. He attended Georgia Southern College and graduated from Georgia State University. His business career included years as a labor negotiator and a manufacturing executive and he retired in 1999 as Senior Vice President of Operations for Coach Leatherware in New York City. Bill’s lifelong passions were golf and movies. He and his wife, Marti Edwards, also enjoyed traveling and collecting antiques and attending UGA women’s gymnastics meets. They recently purchased a farm in Jewell, Georgia, where Bill built a workshop and started new hobbies of wood working, clearing land and moss and fern gardening. He loved sharing his new riverwalk trails with his friends and especially with his grandchildren. Survivors include his wife, Martha Ellen “Marti” Edwards; daughters, Jennifer Pittman and Tamara “Tami” Yates; son, Michael Chance Page; and grandchildren, Victoria Blankenship, Hannah Pittman, Samantha Faith, and James, Camden, Ethan and Helen Page.

Marti, I'm a little late responding to Bill's Passing, however, better late than not at all. I was very sorry to hear about Bill, sadly several days after the funeral. Lesley and I moved from Port Armor a couple of years ago to Monroe and have lost contact with most of our old golfing buddies. Bill and I were two of the younger retirees and enjoyed playing golf together. You probably don't remember us, we lived over on the 15th green and I was always asking for donations on behalf of the fire department. We hope you are doing well. Jim and Lesley Nelms
