Flushing Sanitation worker who died on job honored

A city Department of Sanitation worker from Flushing killed a year ago while on the job was remembered during a ceremony Wednesday to rename the South Ozone Park garage where he was assigned in his honor.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg praised the 37-year-old man as a dedicated worker who loved music.

"Rodney Page was serving the city he loved when he tragically died a year ago. His name on the Queens East 10 Garage will remind all his colleagues of his sacrifice and his commitment to our city."

Page's wife Ingrid was moved to tears at the unveiling of the plaque bearing his name on the building.

"I feel very blessed that my husband is a part of history and will never be forgotten," she said.
