At an early age Gage showed self-confidence and had the determination to figure things out on his own. He loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. Gage was a best friend to his black lab, Grizz. Gage didn’t know a stranger and looked forward to the day when he could take over Papa’s farm. If you wanted to hear a goofy, sometimes inappropriate joke or one liner just ask Gage—he always had one up his sleeve. He was always busy creating, whether it was the tattoo he got soon after he turned 18 or the landscape designs he was proud to install for his customers. Gage had a huge heart and always wanting to help others. His faith allowed him to offer his services on The Water’s Edge Mission Trips for many years.
During his junior and senior year, Gage attended Metro Career Academy studying HVAC. He graduated from Gretna High School in May of 2021. Gage worked in many aspects of lawn care, including at Ty’s Outdoor POWER, mastering his trade at age 19. He founded and was the sole owner of Platinum Lawn & Landscape. Gage had more clients than his parents ever knew about! He was adamant about doing the best job he could offer his clients.
