RIP DICK PAGE
June 12, 2015 the world lost a great guy. Sad for our loss, yet relieved Dick Page has gained his freedom from the body he was trapped in for the past 6 years.
August 11, 1941 – June 12, 2015
The Hot Rod and Custom Car community has lost a great guy today. Dick Page was a true Hot Rodder and Custom Car enthusiast. He build some amazing cars in his career, and made a lot of friends. He knew everybody in the field of Hot Rodding and knew every little detail about all the cars he loved.
I got to know Dick when he contacted me several years ago about the Jimmy Summers 1940 Mercury. Dick was the caretaker of Jimmy’s old 1940 Mercury for many years and wanted to share his stories about the car. We spend countless of emails talking about this car and many other things. Dick was very generous in sharing his passion and knowledge and was really enjoying being able to communicate with people all over the globe about his car passion.
Dick has been ill for quite some time, while his mind was all set to go, his body did not want to cooperate anymore. He was in quite some pain for a long time, but never complaint.
I’m happy that he has gained his freedom from the body he was trapped in for the past 6 years

I am happy his suffering is over but sad for not ever being able to talk to him again, I’m sure I’ll reach for the phone numerous times to call him and then remember I can’t.
Being restricted in moving around, Dick spend a great deal of time behind his computer in the last years. He loved being on Facebook where he made a lot of new friends. Dick was sharing as much of his passion about Hot Rods and Custom Cars as he could. He wanted to give forward all he had learned in his wonderful years.
Thank you very much Dick Page.
Rest In Peace.
