Passed away August 22, 2018 at the Charles S. Curtis Memorial Hospital in St. Anthony at the age of 95 years. Caleb was born in Billy’s Harbour and moved to Cook’s Harbour as a young man. He fished up until his late thirties. Then he went to work with the Department of Highways where he stayed until his retirement after 22 years. Caleb loved the outdoor life and spent as much time as possible hunting, fishing, or just boiling the kettle. As long as he was outside he was happy. He will be surely missed by all his friends and family. May he rest in peace. Caleb leaved to mourn his Brother, Amos (Faye); Sisters, Millie and Rachel (Allan); Brother-in-law, Wesley as well as a long list of nieces, nephews, and close friends. A special thank you is extended to Caleb’s closest friends who were always by his side, Mae Richards and Bob Mesher and families. Caleb was predeceased by his Wife, Cornelia; Parents Bertram and Priscilla; Sisters Eliza, Edith, Dora, Yvonne, and Gladys; Stepmother Maude; Nephew Lorne; Great-nephew Dillon; and Brother Oswald.
