Former TRSL director Carleton C. Page dies
May 2, 2018Carleton C. Page, who directed TRSL under the title Secretary-Treasurer from 1974-1989, died April 23 in Plano, TX.
Dr. Page led the retirement system when Louisiana voters approved a constitutional amendment requiring the system to be actuarially funded—one of the most significant and beneficial developments in TRSL history.
“We consider passage of that constitutional amendment to be the first major step the state took toward ensuring the fiscal soundness of the retirement system,” said current TRSL Director Dana L. Vicknair. “Thanks to the leadership of Dr. Page back then, the system became one of the few in the country to be funded properly.”
Also during his tenure, the TRSL office moved to its current location at the Retirement Systems Building on Essen Lane in Baton Rouge.
Dr. Page was born July 20, 1932 in McComb, MS. He is survived by his wife, Myrtle Glynn Daigle. Funeral mass and Christian burial will be held at 11 a.m., June 9 at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in McComb.
