Gauge Patrick Soller was born on December 17, 2003, to his loving mother Katy, and less-than-enthusiastic older brother, Shaddix, at Great Plains in North Platte, NE.
Gauge attended Gothenburg High grudgingly, as school was not his favorite subject. As a sophomore there, he enjoyed participating in FFA, wrestling (when he was not being pinned), trap shooting and baseball.
At a young age, Gauge learned to “Cowboy Up” and was happily partnerered with his Papa Pat in caring for their growing cattle herd. It was Gauge’s dream to attend the University of Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture at Curtis, and major in Agriculture Management. The goal was for Gauge to take over the operation for his Papa so his grandfather could retire.
The favored grandchild of his great-grandmother Bev, (or so Gauge would say), he was always quick to do anything asked by his best girl.
Gauge was a member of the Crossing Fellowship and gave his heart to Jesus at Maranatha Bible Camp a few years ago.
An avid hunter and fisherman, Gauge’s best times were with his beautiful Bridget by his side and any of his many cohorts, in his beloved pickup Pearl, somewhere in the outdoors. Many times Gauge would have with him, his oldest cousin Kayvin, teaching him the ropes and reigns of life. Every friend of Gauge’s was a best friend, but Kayvin and Gauge were very close indeed.
Gauge never knew a stranger. Whether he met you at a trap shoot, a wrestling meet, or you were his favorite neighbor across the alley, you were a friend for life.
Gauge’s best friends, however, were two of the original three, Momma and Shad. Though the family had been through so much, they were able to make it through every adversity because they had one another.
Gauge is survived by his loving mother, Katy Soller of Gothenburg; father, Joshua (Melissa) Trevino of Weslaco, TX; siblings, Shaddix, Faith, Kayla, Julie, Joshua Jr., John and JJ; his beloved future life partner, Bridget Mceachern; grandmother, Cindy Soller; grandfather, Pat Soller; and greatgrandparents Donald and Beverly Soller; Aunt, Anny Soller, Uncle, Dustin Schneider and many other extended family and friends Gauge was preceded
Gauge was preceded in death by his greatgrandfather, Ron Bice, cousin Zachary Rios and special companion, his pup, Muffy.
