“Caleb was a loving father, husband and friend. His favorite sport to play was soccer, and he enjoyed video games and just being with his family and friends. He was always the light in a lot of people’s lives – helping others and always the one to make you laugh. He always wanted the best for the ones he loved even when he was struggling himself. He loved being a dad and loved his daughter, Juliana, so much. It was such a blessing watching him become a dad.” Shared by his wife, Lisa
