Lucky to find this guy, given that his first name is Charles. Happened across his obituary by sheer luck.

A popular basketball star from New Brunswick, New Jersey, Dick played at St. John's before playing two seasons in the ABL. He was also a firefighter. Page died in 1944 following a brief illness.

He married Alice Griffin (1907-1956) and they had a son, Philip (1939-1960) and Patricia (1938-2016).
