Our son, Gage Daniel Linnemeier, 21, passed away Tuesday, March 21, 2017 in Fort Wayne. Born in Fort Wayne, IN, Gage attended Suburban Bethlehem School and graduated from Churubusco High School in 2014. He worked in Special Operations with a great company that he loved "Fort Wayne Metals". Anyone who knew Gage knew that he was extremely strong in his faith with the Lord and possessed an absolute magnetic personality. Although we don't know the reasons Gage was taken from our family, we do know without question that it was God's plan and that he is without doubt in heaven with our Father preparing a place for his family and all fellow believers in Christ.
Surviving are his parents, Erik S. and Jody L. Linnemeier brother, Carter Linnemeier, sister, Miah Linnemeier all of Fort Wayne, IN; grandparents, Jan and Dave Kelley of Leo, IN; Dan and Carolyn Linnemeier of Fort Wayne, IN; uncles, Chris (Marie) Kelley, Greg (Tony Onarato) Kelley, Jamie (Erin) Kelley, aunts, Julie Kelley, Megan (Tony) Reynolds, Lindsey (Nik) Kohlmeier, Lisa (Bob) Ferguson and his girlfriend, Katie Zent whom he loved in such a uniquely deep way. Memorial Service and Celebration of Life will be 6:00 pm, Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at Pine Hills Church, 4704 Carroll Road with visitation from 3-6 pm at the church with Pastor Mike Drury officiating.
