Caleb you are missed so much by myself and our children. You are missed by your fellow deputies. You are missed by everyone. For those coming here that did not know Caleb, he was an extraordinary man, a wonderful husband, and an exceptional father. Everyone should strive to be like him as a person and fellow LEOs should strive to serve as he did. I pray you all make it home to your families after every shift. Caleb, rest easy love, we’re going to be okay. I cherish all the memories and will continue to tell the children stories of your life and our life together.
