Wilson, Caleb Alexander Died peacefully at home at the age of four. He was born in Delaware to Michael and Sarah and recently moved to Minnesota. He experienced so much and affected so many in his short life. Caleb's love shined through to the people he was close to. He was always giving kisses and hugs. He was incredibly strong, smart, gentle, and stubborn. Despite his enormous challenges, he never gave up on anything he set his mind to. He achieved many things normally taken for granted such as running, climbing, and communicating by overcoming the obstacles he faced. He discovered the joy in the simple things: lights, patterns, and especially music. He loved the cold and the wind and was very happy in Minnesota. He went to preschool at Deephaven Education Center where he made tremendous progress and enjoyed computer time and circle time. He loved to take walks, play on slides, and go to the aquarium. He was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed. Caleb truly changed the lives of those who came to know him. Survived by his parents; his grandparents, Sherry and Chris, Susan and Benjamin, Shelly and Stephen; his uncles, Scott and Cullen; his aunts, Stacy and Melissa, and his great-grandparents, Phoebe and Bobby, James, Carol and Robert, Mickey and Ralph, Donna and Larry. Preceded in death by his uncle, Matthew, and his great-grandmother, Wanda.
