Gage was born Oct. 15, 2001, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the beloved son of Jason Underwood and Heather Underwood. Gage was a senior at Kennedy High School. He was active on the football and basketball teams. Gage worked at Safelite Auto Glass in Cedar Rapids. He enjoyed playing videos games, computers (he always wore his earbuds) and spending time with his favorite pet companion, his dog, Louie. But Gage's true passion was all the great times spent with his friends and family. He was compassionate, friendly, giving, a jokester, hardworker and had a heart of gold. He forever will be remembered as a wonderful son, brother, grandson, nephew and friend who will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
Those left to honor Gage include his father, Jason Underwood (fiancee Kelly) of Palo, Iowa; mother, Heather Underwood of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; two sisters, Kayla and Alexis Underwood; stepsiblings, Lexi, Logan and Luke Levendusky of Palo, Iowa; grandparents, Galen (Marlene) Underwood of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; grandfather, Joe Seng of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; special companion, his dog, Louie; numerous loving aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family members, friends, classmates and neighbors.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Carol Seng; and two aunts, Marlaine Underwood and Nicole Seng.
Gage was taken from us much too soon, but his spirit, quest for adventure, and love for life will be with us always.
