Interment Information


Reginald Anthony Page, passed away peacefully, at the University of Colorado Hospital, in Denver, Colorado, on September 11, 2017, with his older sister, Sharon, by his side. Affectionately, known as “Anthony,” he was the youngest of four children born to Ethel Pearl Rooks Page on July 9, 1965, in Portsmouth, Virginia. Anthony grew up in a Christian family environment inspired by his grandparents, Deacon Enoch & Virginia Rooks. Anthony’s early church affiliation was with the Garden of Prayer Temple, Church of God in Christ, in Portsmouth, Virginia. He loved Sunday School, and was often sought out to recite Bible verses. Anthony was educated in the Portsmouth Public School System. He later acquired certificates in masonry and barbering. Anthony was very intelligent and well-advanced in technological skills. Anthony was “Mr. Personality” as he was outgoing and never met a stranger. He was always jovial and engaging with a striking sense of humor. Anthony was meticulous in his appearance and he had a fondness for name brand tennis shoes. Anthony experienced many heart wrenching challenges in his formative years, as well as, major health issues associated with renal failure, in his adult years. But Anthony was a fighter. He endured each setback and somehow made a comeback. Although his load was heavy, it was rarely evident when you were in his company. Anthony was preceded in death by his beloved mother, Ethel Pearl Rooks Page. He leaves to cherish his memory: two sisters, Sharon Wilson-Rooks of Denver, CO.; Jacquelyn Mills of Alexandria, VA.; one brother, Marvin Page (Sophia) of Roanoke, VA.; one aunt, Eveline R. Garrett of Chesapeake, VA.; three uncles, William Rooks (Beryl) of Chesapeake, VA.; Alfred Rooks of Portsmouth, VA; Elder Alvin R. Rooks, Sr. of Portsmouth, VA.; two nieces, Ashleigh Bell (Esjay) and Amber Wilson of Denver, CO.; one great niece, Krimzin Wilson of Denver, CO., and a host of cousins and friends.
