Caleb Kroffat

July 18, 2002 - November 8, 2013


Passed away suddenly on Friday November 8, 2013.  Born in Victoria BC on July 18, 2002.  Predeceased by his baby sister Kiana.  Lovingly remembered by his family: parents Jason and Renee; fraternal twin brother Ethan; grandparents Mike and Beverley Kroffat and Mark and Margaret Coulombe; great grandparents Everett and Elise Duke as well as numerous other relatives and friends.

Caleb was very ambitious, curious, fearless and kind giving young man.  He loved to hunt, fish, ride his quad, deliver newspapers, garden and play hockey.  He was also very mechanicallly minded like taking apart weed wackers and other equipment and putting them back together again.  This was obvious because he was always digging in his dad’s tool box for tools.  Caleb will be truly missed by all who knew him.

A Celebration of Caleb’s life will be held at Mellor Hall, 7380 Trans Canada Highway Duncan BC on Saturday November 16, 2013 at 11:00 am.  Followed by a reception in the hall.  Interment will take place at Mountain View Cemetery following the reception.

We are so sorry for your loss , I used to hear Caleb and his brother playing when they were small . It was a joyful sound . No family should have to go what you are going through , you are in our thoughts and prayers .

From: Annette Dawes
Relation: Education Assistant in Caleb's grade 2 class

Ethan, Renee, Jason and family: I am so terribly sorry to hear of the loss of your bright, smiling, brother and son. There are just no words to express that can ease the passing of a child. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Caleb and I had a great relationship; we used to spend time wandering Khowhemun field during recess chatting about many things. When I asked if he’d rather play with friends, he’d say “no, I’d rather see how long it takes to annoy you.” Then he’d give me a great big smile and continue to tell his tall tales. At Drinkwater, when he was in grade 4, we reconnected and the conversations continued. He spend much of the year admittedly trying to convince me that I needed a dog in my life. Being a cat person wasn’t an acceptable answer to Caleb.
Caleb, I will never forget your witty humour and never ending smile.

From: The Schmidt's
Relation: Friend

Thanks for so many great memories Caleb you are a unique young man who we will never forget. You and Ethan locking the girls out while babysitting, selling us your mom and dads cedar tree as a Christmas wreath. So many great stories we’ll tell when we talk about you and Ethan. 11 years we watched you grow up at Mike and Bev’s. We’re almost out of tears now but we’ll have a hole in our hearts for some time. Renee, Jason, Ethan and all your family thank you for letting us be part of your family even in the smallest way we have (neighbors across the fence). You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
Gordon, Cathy, Natasha, Samantha and Shaunna
