Posted on Facebook by his daughter....

"My dear Daddy passed away today. We will miss him but rejoice in knowing that the suffering is over. Maddie drew this picture after we told her. She loved him so. Thank you to all who have prayed for us."

Lets all remember the good, I can tell you I will miss him he stepped in after my father passed with a lot of really good advice. Harold Page will be missed.

**Edit**
I failed to mention the above was posted on the 14th.

The Funeral was nice, Lynn looked good, Maddie and her sister seem to be doing well. The funeral let me know that he had been in the hospital for a while, long enough to make some friends of the nurses, get someone an award for great care and "get right" with the Lord (his words, makes me happy;). In the end it was the Kidneys that got him, I figured as much he had been on dialysis for a while. All that started about the time he slowed down his activity here.

Military Honors, along with letters from our Governor and legislators, it was very nice.

My condolences to Harold's family. He was very helpful to many fellow MC owners during his active period on the site, and I generally got a chuckle out of his many posts.

It is coincidental that Harold and Jim both passed this year. They were both military veterans, supporters of the skiing/boarding community, and very helpful on this site. They also had some epic "verbal judo" on several threads on this site. In fact, there was a photo circulating this site of Harold relieving himself over the side of his boat while he was wearing a BAWs t-shirt

Life is too short...

RIP, Harold.
