It is with a heavy heart and great difficulty that we share the news of the unexpected passing of Captain Loren Page, interim executive director of the Association of the United States Navy. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Susan Iverson, and their five daughters, 10 grandchildren and their families.

A Tribute to Captain Loren H. Page
Captain Page (USN ret.) served AUSN as a volunteer leader at the national and chapter level over many years. In August 2022, he was selected as the AUSN Interim Executive Director. He has been instrumental in working with the Board of Directors to develop a new strategic plan to re-ignite the association and its chapters and develop a closer relationship with the Navy Museum Development Foundation, which is working toward a new U.S. Navy Museum.
“Captain Page’s passion for the U.S. Navy was infectious, and he was forever building connections and building bridges for the association in service to the men and women of the U.S. Sea Services,” said AUSN Board Chair Dan Feliz. “We will miss the kind words he had for everyone and his leadership.”
Captain Page was a U.S. Navy Surface Warfare Officer (SWO) who served for 30 years on destroyers/cruisers and as a member of Navy/Joint staffs in OSD/ISA, PACOM, NAVEUR, NAVKOREA and NAVRES. As Commanding Officer (CO) of three Navy Reserve Units, he was awarded Navy Achievement and Navy Commendation medals.
He has been the CEO of several technology and financial planning companies. Prior to becoming AUSN Interim Executive Director, Captain Page was Maintenance Engineer in the Fincantieri Marine Group shipyard that is building the Constellation Class Frigate in Wisconsin.
Captain Page received his BBA in International Marketing from The University of New Mexico. A lifelong learner, he completed advanced studies in education and communications at the University of Minnesota and in financial planning at San Diego State University.
