COOPERSTOWN – Malcolm I. Page, M.D., 88, former Bassett Hospital physician-in-chief, entered into rest on April 11, 2019, in Plant City, Fla., to rejoin his beloved wife, Madge.

He was born on April 28, 1930, in Detroit, and after stays in Atlanta, Ga., Chicago and Cooperstown, made Augusta his family’s home.

During a distinguished 55-year medical career, he touched the lives of many patients, students, doctors, and friends along the way.

Outside of medicine, he was an Anglophile, with a deep interest in Sir Winston Churchill.  An avid golfer, he was a 45-year member of West Lake County Club and true happiness occurred when he had a few dollars in his pocket from the other members of the LDGA.

He is survived by his sister, Anita Elaine Page of Livonia, Mich.; his sons, Malcolm I. Page, Jr. (Amy) of Plant City, Fla., and Leo C. Sutter III of Acworth, GA; son-in-law Benn Goddard; and grandson Brian Goddard of Raleigh, N.C.

In addition to his wife Madge, he was preceded in death by his daughter Cheryl Lynn Goddard.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

Memorial contributions may be made to Moffitt Cancer Center, 12902 USF Magnolia Drive Tampa, FL 33612 or at Moffitt.org
