Dennis Howard Paige

September 19, 1956 — September 24, 2020

Dennis Howard Paige, a resident of Stratford, OK (Longmire Lake area), was born September 19, 1956 in Lindsay, OK to the late Howard and Ruth (Johnson) Paige. He passed away on Thursday, September 24, 2020 in Ada, OK, at the age of 64 years and 5 days.

Dennis grew up in West Texas, moving to Alex, OK while in his teens. After graduating from Alex High School in 1975, he attended drafting school in Dallas. Dennis trained thoroughbred race horses for 19 years, prior to applying for the Oklahoma City Fire Department. He started rookie school with the department in October, 1996 at the age of 40. Dennis served 23 years and 11 months with the Oklahoma City Fire Department.

Dennis and Stacie Taylor met on September 22, 1995 and were married on April 23, 1999 in Las Vegas.

Dennis was a man of many hobbies. He was an avid scuba diver, team roper, world traveler, rancher, poet, jokester, teacher/mentor, known for his one-liners, his whistle, snow skier, bladesmith, master maker of jelly and no-bake cookies, artist, welder, grill master, Captain of the Double D Pontoon Boat, biggest cheerleader of all his families endeavors and the world’s best Papa.
