William Frederick Page

William “Red” Frederick Page, 82, of Moberly passed away  peacefully at his sister’s home in Boonville, MO on July 13, 2022, following a courageous battle with cancer.


Red was born on September 4, 1939 in St. Louis, MO to William Taylor Page and Louise Antoinette McKie and grew up in Elsberry, MO.


Red honorably served in the United States Army from February 17, 1959 to March 28, 1962.  On August 29, 1964 he married Barbara Napier in Keytesville, MO.  Red was co-owner of Brother’s Transportation Services in St. Louis Missouri. In 1968 Red and Barb relocated to Moberly where Red started working at Brothers Trucking Company as a truck driver for 50 years and retired in 2006. When he wasn’t on the road, he was busy helping Barb raise their two sons.  Red was a devoted father and doting husband; he and Barb spent 57 wonderful years together.


Red was one of eleven children.  He enjoyed country music and spending time with his large family and his dogs, Lace, Clay and Angel.


His family will always remember his quick wit, speedy come backs and a great sense of humor. His family always admired how he could say so much in just a few words.

I am so very sorry! Mom and Dad always thought the world of Red and he was devoted to them. He was so loyal when he worked for them and always went above and beyond to help in any way he could. My sympathy and prayers go out to Barb and the family.
