John Andrew Cage(1981 - 2013)

Cage, John Andrew Age 32, died in Dallas on September 4, 2013 after a 13 month struggle with complications from West Nile Virus. He was born in Dallas on July 10, 1981 and lived near White Rock Lake. John attended St. Thomas Aquinas Elementary School and graduated from Jesuit College Preparatory School, class of 1999. He graduated from The University of Texas, School of Architecture in 2006 and moved back to Dallas. John met his wife Monika in college and after a long relationship they were married in 2010. After working for HKS Architects for three and a half years, he joined the Whole Earth Provision Company, which became an extension of his family and lifestyle and was much more than a job. He was a creative soul, with a love for design, cooking, camping, woodworking and many other pursuits. He is survived by his wife, Monika Eberhard Cage; his parents, Harlan Wayne Cage and Patricia Boriskie Cage; in-laws, Deiter and Anna Eberhard; aunts, Linda Boriskie, Diane Murphy, Nita Cage; aunt and uncle, James and Kay Cage; uncle, Richard Seman; godfather, Lewis Hussing; and many, many cousins and dear friends. John's family is very grateful for the extraordinary healing efforts of Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake, particularly the ICU staff where he spent so much of his time in 2012. We are also thankful to the staff of Baylor Institute of Rehabilitation for their physical therapy and helpful counsel. Special acknowledgement is given to the Adaptive Rowing Classes at the White Rock Boathouse, Inc. A memorial celebration remembrance of John's life will be held at the Filter Building at White Rock Lake at 6 PM on Sunday, September 15, 2013. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in John's name to Adaptive Rowing, White Rock Boathouse, Inc., PO Box 140935, Dallas TX 75214, or to the Trinity River Audubon Center,
