Industry veteran Ron Page dies at 64
July 5, 2017,
He was born in Ft. Belvoir, Va. to Joseph Page the late Olga Jane Page.
Page joined the Furniture First staff in 2001 and resigned from his position in 2015 due to health concerns. He was instrumental in building programs and relationships that helped Furniture First’s grow from 47 retailers to more than 200.
Tommy Leflein, president of IHFRA, said Page had a distinct voice – authoritative, yet kind. He said that was also an apt way to describe Page.
“He was a kind man and very respectful of sales reps. He was one of the good guys in the furniture industry,” Leflein said.
In addition to his father, he is survived by his daughter Jenifer A. Carlson and husband Christopher of Harrisburg; a sister Mary Tomlinson of Savage, Md.; the son of Joseph and Olga, Robert James Page of Hyattsville, Md.; and a granddaughter Leah Page Carlson. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests memorial contributions in Ron’s memory to the Kidney Foundation of Central Pennsylvania, 1500 Paxton Street Suite 101 Harrisburg, PA 17104.
