October 20, 1976 – January 22, 2020

Our loving son, brother, and friend to all he met passed away suddenly in Bellevue, Washington at age 43. Gage had a heart as large as all outdoors, one rich in love, laughter, humor, and kindness. He loved to share corny jokes, was a huge fan of the Oregon Ducks and Seattle Seahawks and delighted in spending time with his friends and family. His quiet strength, courage, and infectious laughter spread to all he met.

Gage grew up in the Snoqualmie Valley, was a graduate of Mt Si High School and Charter College, Vancouver, Washington. During his childhood Gage developed a love of animals which lead to his adopting a rescue Plott Hound, Molli. He loved traveling with his family, writing poetry, being a part of his parents’ business, Challenges Northwest, and watching old movies.

Survivors include his parents, Jerry and Marti Neyland, his “best bro” Gavin Neyland; uncles Don Neyland, Charles (Margie) Jenner, Ernest (Norma) Jenner; former wife April Neyland, in-laws Beth and Morry Stover; and a multitude of cousins and extended family and friends who will forever keep Gage in their hearts.

Gage had a strong, deep, quiet faith in Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior. We know, without a doubt, we will all be together again, listening to corny jokes, sharing Gage’s love, laughter and enthusiasm for new adventures under a new set of conditions.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 15, at 1:00PM at the Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church (SVA), 36017 SE Fish Hatchery Road, Fall City, Washington. A reception at the church will follow.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to Canine Companions for Independence, P. O. Box 446, Santa Rosa, California, 95402 ( or an animal shelter of your choice.
