Kenneth Wayne Page, a man of deep faith and unwavering commitment to his community, passed away peacefully on February 8, 2024, in Nashville, Tennessee at the age of 80. Born on January 23, 1944, in Paducah, Kentucky, Kenneth's life was a testament to his loving, adventurous, and generous spirit.
A proud graduate of Heath High School in 1962, Kenneth's pursuit of knowledge led him to Paducah Jr. College, where he earned an associate's degree in 1964. His academic journey culminated with a Bachelor of Science from Murray State University in 1967, laying the foundation for a successful career. Kenneth dedicated many years to Hubble Lighting, where he was respected and admired as a plant manager. His leadership and vision were recognized when he was appointed vice president, a role he honorably retired from in May 2003. His professional achievements were matched only by his commitment to service, as evidenced by his active involvement with the Rotary Club and his valued participation on the Hospital Board in Martin, Tennessee. Beyond his professional and civic engagements, Kenneth was a man of profound faith. He was a dedicated member of Long Hollow Baptist Church, where he lived out his beliefs and served as an example of a great man of God. His faith was a cornerstone of his life, guiding his actions and interactions with all who knew him.
Kenneth's zest for life was apparent through his love of the outdoors. An avid duck hunter and fisherman, he found peace and joy in the serenity of nature. His larger-than-life presence was felt on every excursion, and his commitment to always giving his best was mirrored in both his patience by the water and his strategy in the blind. To say that Kenneth was a family man would be an understatement. His deep love for his family was the current that powered his life. He was a pillar of strength, support, and love, always willing to help others and putting the needs of his loved ones above his own. His family will remember him as a guiding light, a source of endless love and wisdom.
Kenneth's legacy is one of love and service. His adventurous spirit took him on many journeys, but his generosity anchored him to the people and places that needed him most. He will be remembered as a man who lived life fully, loved without reservation, and left an indelible mark on the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know him.
Kenneth is survived by his wife of 58 years, Linda Alexander Page; one daughter, Sheri Page of Gallatin, TN; two sons, Robert Page (Angela) of Riner, VA, Tim Page (Leslie) of Hendersonville, TN; one sister, Linda Kaletch; six grandchildren, Jenna Nation, Allie Page, Noelle Page, Kailey Pollock, Ryker Page, Remy Page; one great-grandchild, Amelia Sage Nation.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Gardner Leslie Page and Bernice Elrod Page.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
