Mr. Earl Gaylord Page, 59, of Manchester, passed away on Wednesday, January 23, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.

Earl was born in Waterbury, CT., on September 9, 1959 to the late Earl and Elsie (Reid) Page.

Earl was a student at Driggs Grammar school and later attended and graduated from Wilby High School where he was active in many school activities, including chorus, African-American club and class fundraising efforts. As a senior he starred in the school play "South Pacific."

During his time at Wilby High Earl excelled in athletics as a runner. He was captain of both the cross country and track and field teams. During his time at Wilby Earl earned many honors as a track athlete. He was a 3-time selection to both the all city (Waterbury) as well as all Naugatuck Valley League teams in both indoor and outdoor track. He held numerous 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishes on the Connecticut state level as well as the school's all-time record for the 330 -yd. intermediate hurdles during his illustrious career on the track.

After high school Earl attended and graduated from Post University earning an associate's degree in liberal arts and finished his college career earning a bachelor's degree in business at the University of Baltimore in Maryland.

Earl leveraged his business degree, organizational skills and leadership ability along with his willingness to help others to build a career in the health services industry. He began that calling as the Director of Environmental Resources for Baltimore Hospital Shock Trauma Unit.

Earl returned home with his young family in tow to use his experience to give back to the community that nurtured him. He worked his way up from maintenance team leader to become the Director of Environmental Resources for the entire Hartford Children's Hospital. Earl finished his career as an Environmental Resources Specialist for Trinity Health Care.

In his chosen field Earl Gaylord Page was a capable and dedicated professional but there was much more to him than work. Earl was a kind, gentle, giving spirit who always thought of others before himself.

He loved to dance, tell jokes, do magic tricks and generally make people feel good when they were around him. Mostly, he loved to "clown." Earl turned that ability to spread joy into a calling that led him to creating his alter-ego "Paco the Clown." Earl spent a good deal of his time entertaining children at parties and events. He made them laugh, mystified them with magic and taught them lessons about how to be together in a safe and fun atmosphere.

Earl enjoyed connecting with people of all backgrounds and cultures. He always took advantage of an opportunity to learn more about the experiences of others. He especially enjoyed being member of the Japanese Society of Greater Hartford. Earl would eagerly give his rendition of a Japanese tea ceremony to anyone who visited him. He loved regaling friends and family with tales of his recent adventures in Africa.

Earl Gaylord Page was a devoted father and loving husband who was extremely proud of his children. That devotion to children saw him take on a mentorship role for the youth in his community. Earl's life stands as a shining example of strength, grace and courage in the face of all life's challenges.

Earl understood early on that God created and put him on this earth to spread joy. Earl was always the life of the party, which was mainly because he put the "party" into life. Earl saw life as a blessing and he lived each day celebrating it. We ask that you celebrate his life today and every day going forward by spreading the same joy that he would if he were still here.

He leaves to forever cherish his memories, his wife Rita Summers-Page, two children Tayler Page and Myles Page, paternal Aunt Ruth McEachin, maternal Aunt Juanita Reid, as well as a many loving relatives and friends.

Aside from his parents, he was pre-deceased by his sister, Tammy Beamon.

Earl Gaylord Page felt most free on the seat of his motorcycle. Just the wind and a twisting road on which to lose himself in the beauty of nature. Today he rides the sky.
