Kaleb Geoffrey Price
2002 – 2021
Kaleb Geoffrey Price was born in Lethbridge, Alberta, on July 11, 2002 and quietly passed away on February 28, 2021 in Lethbridge. He was the first of three boys born to Troy & Tessa Price and the first grandchild of Geoff & Susan Rhodenizer.
When Kaleb was born on that hot day in July, the first words that came out of his father’s mouth was, “Holy cow! Look at those cheeks!” Indeed, Kaleb not only had the biggest and cutest cheeks this side of the Rockies but also had huge baby rolls from his arms to his toes that would make the Michelin Man look skinny. Aside from always wanting to eat and sleep, which interestingly enough didn’t change as a teenager or adult, Kaleb had a quiet demeanor and a beautiful smile that would light up any room and immediately endear everyone to him.
Kaleb was always a bright and curious boy but as a child, struggled to speak and communicate. Instead of saying the words, “I’m thirsty” he would do the actions of drinking a bottle and say, “ahh”. Or, if there was a basketball net he would say “Backka Backka Ballllll!” or yell and point to the school were his father worked and say, “Dad!!”
When it came to academics, Kaleb was always a diligent student who excelled in most subjects. He loved playing basketball, video games, memes, camping and fishing with his family and friends, working at the Superstore and driving his car.
What meant the most to Kaleb was his relationship with others, especially his relationship with his two younger brothers, Seth and Aron. Kaleb always had time for a quick board game, a lending ear, or older brotherly advice. He led by example – one of kindness, fairness, humility and love.
Kaleb will be dearly missed by his family, grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, friends, and all he knew him.
A celebration of life service will be held on Saturday, March 20, 2021 from 6-9pm at the Price household. His parents ask that in lieu of flowers, donations in Kaleb’s memory are made to the Canadian Mental Health Association.
