A celebration of the life of Dameron Page, 35, will be held Saturday, April 16, at 2 p.m. at The Church of the Holy Family, 200 Hayes Road, Chapel Hill where he was a devoted member, conducted by the Rev. Clarke French and the Rev. Michelle Robertshaw. Interment will be in the church Columbarium.
Dameron was born in Wilson County and lived there until he entered the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill in 1994. There he became a die-hard UNC Tar Heel and was very proud to be called a Tar Heel. He was an only child with beloved grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Dameron went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, April 5, 2011. He died at his home in Chapel Hill. An Angel came from heaven and took Dameron to be with his Heavenly Father after a courageous battle with Diabetes Type I, known as Juvenile Diabetes. He fought all his battles with so much strength, determination and will power. God saw how tired his body was, so he called him to be with him in heaven with his loved ones who were already there. His life was cut too short and taken much too soon. He lived a good life, but not long enough. Yes, we lost Dameron but we also know our loss is heaven’s gain.
He leaves to cherish his memories, his parents; Buddie and Agnes P. Page of Wilson; his grandmother, Collete Page of Wilson; uncles, Hank Freeman and wife Maggie of Anniston, Ala., Billy Page and wife, Ann of Wilson, Ronald Page and wife, Lynn of Cary; aunt, Beverly Boyette and husband, Rob of Lucama; special cousins, Jerry Page and wife, Robin, Joey Page and wife, Tonya, and Jimmy Page and wife, Linda all of Wilson, Rusty Boyette of Lucama, Daniel Boyette of Greenville and Emily Page of Cary.
Dameron was preceded in death by his grandparents; Dalmer and Audrey Pearson, Oliver and Dollie Page; a very special aunt, Robenia “Beanie” P. Freeman with whom he traveled to London and Greece, and a very special cousin, John Page.
