Gage was born July 17, 2002, in Dublin to Wayne Thigpen and Lisa Thigpen. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Claude and Jackie Thigpen; maternal grandfather, Freddie Smith; uncle, Kenny Smith. Gage loved watching NBA, going fishing, listening to music, and shooting basketball and any gun he got a hold of. Every door he walked through, he either slammed it or took it down completely. Gage would ride the wheels off any car he got in and would lay on the horn when he pulled up in the yard. As a child, he loved swinging from the ceiling fan. He would give his shirt off his back to anyone who needed it. One of his favorite things in life was working with his dad. Gage was a big family man. More than anything, he loved his daughter, Alana.
