Brandie Gage, the widow of White Settlement firefighter Trevor Gage, who was killed by a hit-and-run driver over the weekend, spoke to News 8 about her husband Monday morning.
"He was a great father," she told us. "He took our kids fishing all the time. He helped my oldest daughter with her homework. He was teaching our 8-year-old how to ride a bike without training wheels."
"He always helped others," Brandie said a short time later. "Anytime he could save a life or property, he was always there to do it. If someone was stranded on the side of the road, he always stopped and helped."

A vigil has been planned for Travor Gage Monday at the White Settlement library at 7:30 p.m. A GoFundMe page has also been set up for the family's expenses.
Police are still looking for the driver who hit Gage on Spur 341 in west Fort Worth Saturday and took off. The suspect is described as being a Latino man with slicked-back hair. He was driving a black Ford F-150.
White Settlement POA posted this description on its Facebook page Sunday afternoon:
Based on current information we are looking for a gloss black (not two tone) Ford F150 between the years of 2010-2014, possibly a Limited model. We expect this to have scrape marks along the passenger side truck bed from the highway bars on the motorcycle. The driver was a Hispanic male with black hair. The truck most likely DOES NOT have front end damage as seen in several reports. Witness statements said that there is a sticker in the bottom left corner of the truck tailgate.
