Gage Fogt, 14, passed away Wednesday, October 30, 2019 after being struck by a vehicle while walking along the road. Gage was a kind and loving young man who was born on August 26, 2005 in Kansas City, Missouri. He was a lifelong resident of Weston, MO where he attended school as an 8th grader at West Platte. He was a member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church and a boy scout with Troop 167 in Leavenworth, Kansas. He enjoyed helping others and volunteered without hesitation whenever called upon. His love for the outdoors was evident by the time he spent on campouts with his scout troop and the help he provided on the farm with his Dad caring for cattle and assisting with putting up hay. He was fearless in his adventures, much to his mother’s dismay, finding toads, snakes and other creatures. He had a knack for collecting things he found interesting. He loved fishing, swimming, country music, playing games with his family and building challenging Lego sets. His dog, Bailey, was his best friend bringing him great joy as the two of them spent countless hours together.
