Kimball Morsman Page, 89
ORR'S ISLAND - Kimball M. Page died at his home on Orr's Island, Maine, on Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018. He was the beloved son of the late Harve H. and Margaret M. Page; loving father of Martha Dickinson and her partner, Alexandra Keats, of Vermont, and Helen Anne and Dennis Quigley of Florida; proud grandfather to Stephen, Kate, Chloe and Suzannah; brother of Hubbard O. Page of Illinois. He leaves his life partner of 44 years, John R. Webster. They were married on Dec. 29, 2012.
Born in Evanston, Ill., on June 21, 1929, Kimball attended Evanston schools and Governors Academy. He attended Northwestern University, co-founded by his great-great-grandfather, the Rev. Philo Judson, and was a lifelong learner.
Kimball began his career with Marshall Field's in Chicago and continued with Samuel Kirk & Son in Baltimore where he was a buyer and general manager for specialty silver consumer products. In 1964 he joined Gorham Silver Company in Providence, R.I., and ended his career there as the director of U.S. Retail Sales Training.
After four successful years selling real estate in southern New England, Kim joined John Webster in founding Richmore Publishing in Vermont and published a weekly shopping guide throughout central Vermont. From this venture they moved to St. Petersburg, Fla., where he worked as the assistant manager for all media at Robinson's Department Stores.
Kimball and John moved to Fearrington Village, N.C., in 1986, and there he became involved with non-profit fundraising as he delved into his new community. New England beckoned once again, and in 1999 Kimball completed the renovation and expansion of their home on Orr's Island, Maine. "On the Rocks" welcomed friends and family from all corners of the globe and, from his island perch, Kim lived life to the fullest.
Memorial graveside service at the Orr's Island Cemetery, Harpswell Islands Road, Orr's Island on Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 1 p.m. Rain location across the street at the Old Orr's Island Schoolhouse.
