Joe attended Downey and Johansen High Schools in Modesto, CA. As a teenager he enjoyed playing the drums for the high school band. Joe and his wife had a son, Michael Scott Gage, born on August 9, 2000. Joe picked out the unique spelling of his son’s name, Mikkie, saying that there would be hundreds of “Mikey’s” but none like him. To honor Joe’s legacy, the Gage family has chosen the Fisher House Foundation.
