I was at that address to greet Mr Maurice O. Page, coming back from the hospital. I was last to stay with him before removed by funeral home.
It was a great privilege for me to be in Maurice's life during his last two weeks with us.
What a great man!
Special thanks and condolences to Pauline ( wife ).

So sorry to have learned of Maurice’s passing. He truly was an inspiration within the family opening the doors for many of us to walk through toward higher education. I am grateful for his presence and support. Know that the ripples he cast spread through the generations of “Basil's” yet to be born.

Hi Pauline,

I was sorry to hear about Maurice. He was a talented and energetic person and teacher. He was very demanding of himself and his students. I also enjoyed talking with him about music.

I remember many years ago, one of his students came to me because she was having trouble learning Algebra. She said she was especially having difficulty learning Maurice's "Can Theory." She asked me if I could help her with "CanTheory." I told her that I did not know there was a"Can Theory" in Algebra.

A few days later, I went to Maurice's Algebra class to evaluate him. There he was in front of the class with several tennis ball cans teaching his students to solve equations using his "Can Theory."

We are all better for having known Maurice. I learned a lot from this wonderful person and teacher.
