Kaleb began racing dirt bikes at a young age and would go every weekend to ride. With much practice, he became number one overall for the state of Michigan for his age group in the 50cc class. He loved the thrill of the race and always had a passion for the sport. After moving to Texas in 2005 with his family, Kaleb attended school in Hays CISD and graduated Class of 2015 from Hays High School. As he got older, Kaleb developed a love for travel and exploring, and was always ready for the next adventure. He enjoyed being with his family and friends, and never failed to make them smile and laugh.
Kaleb had recently left his job of three years at Brooklyn’s to pursue a career in the Military. He always jumped at the chance to help others in anyway that he could, and he felt like this was his next calling to do just that.
Kaleb had an incredible spirit and a kind heart and he will be forever missed by his family and friends.
