He is preceded in death by his spouse of almost 40 years, Noel Jean Page; step-son, John Gaddis; brother, Ralph Page; and sister Ouida Page Reid.
Jim was born in Garland where he graduated from McKenzie High School. He then attended and graduated from Business College in Mobile. He moved to Tampa and worked as a Claims Adjuster for Central Truck Lines from 1949-1988, when he retired.
Jim was a long time member of Manhattan Baptist Church, serving as both a Deacon and the Treasurer. He was a devoted Christian and loved the Lord with every fiber of his being.
From the time he was a boy, Jim loved to fish! He certainly enjoyed his time on many local lakes. He was also an avid golfer and took great pleasure in attending several Master’s Golf Tournaments in Augusta, Ga. with his best golfing buddies. Watching the Golf channel was one of his favorite pastimes in later years. He and Jean loved watching college football, especially the Alabama teams!
