Gage Allan Kiser

Age 18

Hazel Dell, Washington

He will never meet his child

He loved longboarding and had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to surf with his friends in California under the lunar eclipse. He would snuggle kittens, even though he was allergic.

He was expecting a child with his girlfriend. He attended Skyview High School and only needed four more credits to graduate. He had five younger siblings, one who preceded him in death. He was inseparable from his other brother Skyler, who meant everything to him.

On Dec. 10, 2018, Gage Allan Kiser, 18, was fatally shot in a parking lot in Hazel Dell, Washington.
