Gage T. Driver, age 8, of Litchfield, MN, died on Sunday, April 15, 2012 at his home surrounded by friends and family. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, April 21, 2012, at the Litchfield High School. Visitation will be held from 4:00 - 8:00 PM on Friday, April 20, 2012 at the Litchfield High School. Gage was a very quiet little boy until he got to know you. He was a little jokester with the most precious smile and a laugh that would light up the room. Gage was the best cuddler, but he didn't give out many hugs, so if he hugged you, you should consider yourself very lucky. Gage had a mind of his own and rarely was willing to change it. His fun loving personality and soft heart will be missed by many. Gage's love for intricate things was never-ending, from putting together Legos to doing crafts with Grandma Bev, to working on science experiments and math, to taking apart anything we would let him. Gage was an expert at his video games, sometimes he would even let uncle Tait play. Gage was "All Boy"! He loved running, biking and playing catch with his dad. But, summertime was his favorite when he was able to be with his sisters and brother and all the cousins swimming and playing night games. He loved to fish with his daddy, grandpa and uncles. Wrestling became a huge part of Gage's life when he was 4 years old. He was so proud of all his trophies. He had a love for his team that was priceless. During the past 6 1/2 months Gage taught us more about unconditional love, bravery and faith than most people experience in their lifetime. The bond he had with his siblings was like that of no other. We will forever miss Gage's smiles, jokes, laugh and his amazing hugs. We are so proud that God entrusted Gage with us for 8 wonderful years. So until we meet again - "We love you to the moon and back again forever." Gage is survived by his parents Terry and Trina Driver, siblings, Emily, Kamri and Benjamin, grandparents, Tom and Carolyn Christensen and Beverly Driver, uncles and aunts, Tait and Martha Christensen, Kevin and Diane Driver and Wade Driver. He is also survived by his cousins, Carli, Colby and TJ Christensen, Colleen and Laura Driver and special cousin, Jaibyne Braatz, along with many other friends and extended family. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Kenneth Driver and Buster the dog. Memorials to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and the Tim Orth Memorial Foundation are preferred.
