Bruce C. Gage
January 8, 1957 - April 22, 2021
Lakewood, Washington - Bruce Carlson Gage was born January 8, 1957 to Ralph (deceased) and Betty Gage, touching down in the then quaint village known as Seattle, WA. At 64 he packed his spiritual belongings and departed for points unknown on Earth Day, April 22, 2021. He is survived by his loving wife Indra Finch, mother Betty, stepmother Dana, brother Tom (Sue), former wife Helen, son Alex (Inessa), daughter Lauren, and a bevy of cousins.
Bruce enjoyed a myriad of sports, hobbies, and adventures, including mountaineering, skiing, kayaking, diving, gardening, creating music, and above all, sailing- a shared love passed down from his father. Given his eclectic interests it is no surprise he traveled the world with Indra from Uzbekistan to the South Seas. From his professional life as a forensic psychiatrist to his spiritual pursuits and lust for adventure, he crossed many folks' paths. Not shy to express his opinions or mince words, Bruce informed, humored, and challenged us; he was never dull.
Bruce believed life should be set at a jogging pace sprinkled with frequent sustained sprints. In recent years, he may have slowed physically, but his quest for knowledge- musical, technical, professional, and spiritual only grew. Perhaps now he has begun his biggest adventure yet- may it be at a jogging pace…
