Henry R. ‘Bob’ Page, 74

Henry R. "Bob" Page, age 74, of Harborcreek, passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday, Nov. 26. 

He was born in Erie on July 6, 1942, a son of the late Florence Huffman and Hank Page.

Bob was employed by EMTA as a driver for 35 years. He enjoyed talking to his regular riders and always had a kind word for first-time riders. He was a member of the East Erie Moose Lodge and a life member of the Siebenbuerger Club. 

Bob enjoyed playing golf and especially enjoyed bowling with his brother-in-law, Bill. 

In addition, Bob also enjoyed travelling; his favorite destination was Las Vegas. His most recent visit included a stop at the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop made famous by the popular TV show, "Pawn Stars," which made the trip extra special. 

Bob will also be lovingly remembered for the great help he was to his late mother-in-law, taking her grocery shopping, to the bank, and even out to lunch. When she became unable to do things for herself, Bob stepped in and did them for her.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his grandparents, George and Nellie Briggs, who raised him; a sister, Marolyn Zielonis; and his mother-in-law, Martha Reedy.

Survivors include his beloved wife of 42 years, Linda Reedy Page; five sisters, Diana Huegel, Patty Page, Carol Huffman, Gloria Rodriguez (Bill) and Kathy Daniels; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and great-great-nieces and nephews.

A special "thank-you" to nieces, Brenda, Sherry, Felicia and Debbie, who rallied around their uncle to make his last days as comfortable as possible.

Services were held at the Dusckas-Taylor Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Inc., 5151 Buffalo Road and at Laurel Hill Cemetery. 

Memorial contributions may be made to The Make-A-Wish Foundation, 1001 State St., Suite 502, Erie, PA 16501.
