Bob Gage frugal

When Bob Gage, a former London Free Press sports reporter, died July 12 at age 89, who knew he had $1 million to leave to the University of Western Ontario.

But, says a Canadian Press story on cbcsports.ca, that is the amount the former longtime Western Mustangs beat reporter left for scholarships and a sports museum.

Question of the day, says CP: How does a local sports reporter have $1 million to bequeath?

Carole Stinson, the university's campaign director, said Gage was frugal and simply saved his money.

Take note, Freep employees.

  1. For those who knew Gage, he didn't drive, didn't drink and didn't marry (or have kids).
