BROOKLET, Ga. -- Mr. Truman Parker Page, age 88, died Thursday, October 3, 2019, at the Ogeechee Area Hospice inpatient facility in Statesboro.
    He was born in Bryan County on May 30, 1931, the fourth of 10 children born to the late Evan Vernie Page and Lenie Edenfield Page.
    Truman grew up on the family farm. On July 4, 1954, he married the love of his life, Vivinea Williams. Throughout his career, Truman worked with Union Camp, International Paper, Kaiser Chemical and Georgia Pacific.
    Following his retirement, he began working with William Hendrix at Brooklet Auto and later Bulloch County Recycling Center.
    Truman loved Jesus and his church. He was a member of Trinity Baptist Church in Nevils, Georgia, where he was a member of the Roscoe Roberts Sunday School Class. His service to the Lord was spread throughout many years, with him singing hymns and gospel music. In his younger years, he sang with the Singing Laymen and The Friendly Five Quartet, and later in life he enjoyed singing and visiting with Brown’s Nursing Home residents.
    His ministry continued through his talent of working with his hands, traveling on mission trips, using his building skills to build churches in various locations, and locally with the Jesse Morris Cottage at the W.W. Mann Center.
    Truman was known for his love of gardening and his generosity in sharing the fruits of his labor with family and friends.
    He enjoyed many years of fishing in the river and local ponds.
