September 20, 1953 - May 2, 2021
Michael E. Page, age 67, passed away on May 2, 2021. He was born on September 20, 1953 in McComb, MS, and partly raised in Magnolia, MS, before moving to Westwego, LA, and most recently a resident of Hammond, LA. Mike graduated from West Jefferson High School. His passions included bass fishing, hunting, classic cars, zydeco music and most of all his love for cooking and the joy it would bring him to be able to share his recipes and completed dishes for others to enjoy. He had several certificates and plaques for his 30 years of service with Shell Oil as an operator his promotion to their Safety Department. After his retirement, he spent a lot time working on his garden and enjoying life. Most mornings he would wake up right before sunrise and drink his coffee and sit on the back porch, enjoying our back yard and the wildlife and nature that it consisted of. He loved the outdoors and the simple things that were going on around him. He would always say “Thank you God for giving us such a beautiful day.” His optimism regardless of the situation was contagious, making you want to strive to be a better person. He was one those people whom others would remember because he always tried to help others and make a small impact on no matter what was bothering them; he always seemed to touch their life in some way. He was naturally gifted when it came to fixing “anything” he could work on countless things like; vehicles, anything electrical, plumbing or almost anything construction related. Some of the family’s fondest memories were the simple things we did together. It wasn’t vacations or trips to amusement parks. Things that really stand out to us are how he spent his time. They miss how he would show his children how to plant and maintain the garden, bass fishing and how to hunt, showing them how to ride a bike and teaching them to play sports. If there is one thing we want our dad remembered for - it is his selfless acts of kindness and his huge heart when it came to others. He knew what it meant to be poor and he made sure his work ethic was second to none. He would sometimes put in 12-16 hr days to get ahead in life. He inherited those traits from his mom, and she made sure to instill those values in him at an early age. He was constantly making himself available to others that needed a leg up. They can remember If there is one motto or quote he lived by, it was this “Every day is a second chance – So make the most of it.” Mike is survived by his beloved wife of 48 years, Debbie Bourgeois Page; sons, Harlee Page and Rylee Page; mother, Emma Lee Page; brothers, Danny Page and Wayne Page. He is preceded in death by his father, Joe Wilson Page; and brothers, Terry Page and David Page. Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the visitation from the chapel of Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Home, 12012 Hwy 190 W. Hammond, LA 70403, on Saturday, May 15, 2021 from 11:00 a.m. until the funeral service at 1:00 p.m. Interment will follow in Old Zion Hill Baptist Church Cemetery.
