Following his graduation, he moved to Utah and in 2011 he returned to Gillette where he worked at Interstate Power Systems as a mechanic. For the past several years, Caleb has been with his fiancé, Allix Bray and together they enjoyed countless memories.
Caleb was a talented mechanic who took part in speed competitions and he competed well. He loved dirt bikes. Whether he was riding them or fixing them, Caleb loved being around dirt bikes. Caleb was independent; he was his own person, and honesty was important to him. Playing guitar was something he enjoyed as well. He would play electric and acoustic guitar and he really enjoyed playing them at night for his girls. Caleb loved his daughters so much, and they loved him. He will be missed dearly by his family and friends.
