A Quiet Giant

A Quiet Giant
For generations, the Page family dedicated themselves to the work of First Baptist Church of Olean, New York. Kingman Page's father,Wilson, was the chairman of the Trustee Board for many years. Following in his father's footsteps, Kingman became a devoted Trustee and served for more than 50 years.

In the 1970's,when the church decided to demolish the building that stood on their property for 90 years and build a new church, Kingman was an integral part of the planning, the volunteer work, and the completion of the building.

As Pastor Dan McDowell remembered the life of Kingman Page, he recalled his faithful witness:
"I will remember him as a quiet giant in the life of the First Baptist Church of Olean. Kingman's legacy will continue not only here in Olean, but in American Baptist mission work for many years to come. I can only imagine his joy as he heard his master proclaim, 'Well done thou good and faithful servant!"'
