  1. To the Haskell family and beyond… These past two days have been filled with such honest and beautiful tributes to Caleb that truly showed all that he embodied. And even though I only knew Caleb through Amy, Ashley, and Karen, I have been forever touch by him as his being radiates through the ones he loves. My heart, my love, and my prayers are entirely with all of you and always will be.

  2. Tonight I was trying to locate the time and place of a fellow teacher’s memorial service ,and as I scanned the names I was shocked and saddened to see Caleb’s name. As I read the comments of others,I thought back on the days he spent in my Art Class.I remember Caleb sitting in my class ,a little shy, a little “Spunky” and always a happy ,fun loving student. Having had Cherine also, I loved their enthusiasm and free spirit. So many years have passed since those days in Intermediate School in Palos Verdes .As I read the wonderful comments that others had written, I realize he certainly must have been a terrific adult role model. My deepest Sympathy goes out to Amy and the Haskell family. Caleb will certainly be missed as he seems to have been a wonderful influence on so many. Terry Madison Retired Palos Verdes teacher.

  3. In third grade, I transferred to Lunada Bay Elementary. I soon became familiar with the wit and wisdom of Caleb Haskell. Though I knew him until I graduated high school, I could only, really, remember his character during those short years of elementary. Caleb was hilarious. He made learning fun! He always had a smile on his face as he did one thing or another! Elementary school was long ago, but if asked to name memorable people from that era, he would top my list. I can see, after reading the tributes from others, that he was still memorable up until the day he passed on. I was so shocked and saddened to hear of his passing, but I am sure he is now charming the angels in heaven above! I am a teacher now, and every now and then, and I have a “Caleb” ~ Those who poke fun at the insanities of life, but do so with love and understanding of the life they so believe in. They’re a rare breed indeed!

  4. Caleb you are the one and only! Your my best friend and my brother, you have always been there for me everytime I needed you. You are the first friend I ever cried in front of and the last friend I ever thought would make me cry so much. I promise I will look over your family for you. Say hi to my mom and all our friends who are with you. I LOVE YOU!!! See you later BRO! Bill

  5. Caleb, You have touched my life in so many ways. I am so fortunate to have been lucky enough to have been part of your life for so long. You will always be in my heart and my thoughts. I promise to take care of Amy and your family from here on out. Until we meet again, I love you Lindsey

  6. The last time we hung out alone I had the pleasure of introducing him to the well kept secret that is the bar at Gable House bowl. I will carry that day along with all the others we spent together in my heart forever.

  7. Caleb, Thanks for the fun years of playing soccer together. We had some fun games in club soccer, and I will cherish those memories for the rest of my life. I LOVE YOU !!

  8. Caleb, We will always remember your love and generosity. Thank you for being a part of our lives and our wedding. I will never forget the late nights we spent putting the first lift on my truck or putting my first supercharger on my mustang. You were always there anytime I needed a friend. I always said that you were one of the very few people that I would know for the rest of my life no matter what happend. And even though you are physically gone, I will never forget the friend that you are to me. Words can’t express how much we love you and will miss you.

  9. Caleb, you were a permanent fixture in our house growing up. You used to just walk into the house without knocking, go straight to the kitchen, grab a drink, sit down on the couch and turn on the TV. And when I brought my papasan chair home from college, you claimed it as your own!!! We will all miss you.

  10. Caleb, Loving you was so easy, which makes losing you so hard. A thousand memories we’ve shared and I will forever cherish them all. I feel so blessed to have been a part of your life for as long as I have. The time when it hurts the most is when i realize that I won’t see you walk back through my door or ride along side of me in the desert just to make sure the boys don’t leave me behind. Those memories are what bring a smile to my face and a tear to my eye. Just know that with those memories I will hold you in my heart. So save a seat at the poker table for me and don’t forget to visit me in my dreams, I’ll be looking forward to seeing you again. Your friend, Shelle

  11. Caleb, You are a friend that will never be forgotten. With your whole life ahead of you, this tragedy hits so hard to home. The memories of you are endless, and will always bring a smile to my face. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and Amy. With so many loving friends, rest assured they will be looked after, as I know you will be watching out for us. Rest in Peace, and until we meet again. Ron

  12. Caleb, You continue to be an inspiration. Everyone that knew you witnessed the honesty and compassion with which you lived. It was an honor to be your friend. I love you and miss you. Nothing can truly ease the pain felt now, I find small consolation in the knowledge of how happy you were when we last spoke. Know that Amy and your family will always be taken care of. Miss you buddy.

  13. Caleb, Where do I begin… First off, I would like thank you for getting me ready for Fear Factor. You were the only person that could get me to eat the most disgusting things and I LOVE YOU for it. You were a great friend to me and to everyone you came in contact with. By the way, thanks for showing me those police take down moves… my fingers and back still hurt! Thank you for all the great times we had. I will miss you. See ya on the other side buddy. Love you, Susan & Jeff Weiner

  14. Caleb, I will never forget the good times we had, on and off the golf course. Watching the distance you hit those golf balls made me extremely jealous. You will be missed Caleb. RIP

  15. Caleb, I will never forget you and some of the good times we had over the years. Going to Mammoth back in the day, going to the desert, and more recently going to Mickie Finz to name a few. You are an inspiration to me with how you achieved your ultimate goal of becoming a police officer and how happy you were. I will never forget earlier this year when I was going through a rough time after I got denied from the fire department, and you sitting me down and giving me advice that cheered me up and gave me hope. I will always cherish the memories of you and I know you will be watching over all of us and guiding us. Love you bro

  16. Caleb, although I am devastated by your death, I feel very fortunate for the short time that i had the privelege of calling you my friend and brother. You were an inspiration to us all. You knew what you wanted out of life, and were not afraid to go out and get it. I will always love and remember you. Until we meet again, Richie

  17. Caleb, You have always been there for Zack and I since I can remember. You stood next to us on our wedding day and slept on the floor in the hospital while Kaylie was being born. We are so lucky to have had all those wonderful times with you and will always keep every memory close in our hearts. I feel so lucky that Kaylie was able to be share the last 7 years with you. You will always be her Uncle Table. I will miss you, until I see you again. I will love you forever. I love you, Krissy

  18. There are so many good times I shared with Caleb and i will never forget them. My heart goes out to the Haskell Family and to Bill as well. I cant express how much of a loss it has been to lose another good friend it is just unreal. Love You and Miss You BRO! P.S. Tell Jeffrey I said Hello okay.

  19. Caleb,My brother. The truth is every good memory I have you are in it,from the day I got married to the day my daughter was born. You are the most loyal friend any of us have ever had. You are a good man and you have shown me the way I should live my life and conduct my self. Thank you for always being ther for me. I love you with all my heart and I will never forget all the good times. Thank you, Zack

  20. Caleb: Because of you we understand this: In order to grieve this deeply and feel heartache so powerful that it takes our breath away, we must have first loved someone so deeply and so powerfully that the heart was so full of love and joy for that person that it took our breath away. Caleb our love for you is a forever love, thank you for sharing your life and love with us.

  21. Caleb, Thank you for the years we had and the memories I will cherish forever. I thank god for introducing me to Tarek because if it wasn’t for him, I would have never had the opportunity of meeting such an amazing friend. Until we meet again buddy, RIP

  22. Caleb, You have been such a wonderful friend to all and will be forever missed. I will never forget when you showed me my first shooting star in the desert. The next one I see I know it will be you. Till we meet again may all the stars in the sky remind me of you.

  23. I have a little photo on my wall of caleb as an angelic 3 year old, with a smudge of mayonnaise on his face. Our grandma and I always remarked how he looked like an angel…Well, there is no doubt he is truly one now. I will love you and miss you forever, my sweet Caleb. I’m so thankful to have even had the chance to know such a strong, loving, upstanding soul. See you again, lovely cousin.

  24. Caleb, It’s hard to find the words to say what I want to say. I feel truly blessed to have ever known you. I remember all the times that I would take apart my car or bike and have to call you and Bill to help me put it back together. You were always there when I needed help. Thank you for all the memories. I send all my love to you and your family. You are greatly loved and will be greatly missed. Later brother, Tarek

  25. Caleb, You were an incredible inspiration for us all. You were not only a wonderful husband, but the best son and brother anyone could have asked for. I will always look at you like an older brother and never forget the memories of you telling Ash and I to go change our clothes before we went out. As I recall you called us “hoochie mamas”. In life they say the good die young, well remember you were the best and now god is watching over you. You will forever be in my heart. Love, Jackie Tavera

  26. Caleb, I am blessed to have known you, and proud you are my friend. Your Family is well taken care by an incredible group of long time friends. Every time I drive down the 60 freeway by Beaumont I will salute to the famous spot also known as the AssBreaker! I love you brother. Until I see you again Jason

  27. Caleb, Thank you for being one of my many brothers for soooo many years! You always were there when ever I could come home, or just a late night phone call when you got off work. You motivated me to move away and start a different life. I will never forget how many times I spoke to you when I was feeling home sick, and you would never let me quit and just come home. I know it was out of love, because you always new what was best. I don’t know how to let you go, so am not going to. You own a place in my heart, and will meet up with you sometime! Please give my dad a hug up there. I love you brother! Peace be the journey, Youngs

  28. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Coach Fawaz and I coached Caleb in football during his Sophmore year. I always enjoyed the enthusiam he brought to the team. I know those were fun days for him. Spending time with your good friends in a sport is always memorable. Since both of my boys are police officers I know how proud you are that he chose such an honorable profession. Again please accept my heartfelt sympathy.

  29. Caleb, I know you as the “strong silent one” that never drew attention to himself, the guy who was always there for my son Vince and the guy who was so devoted to his love Amy. But it is clear as I read these testimonials that you were much more as you are respected and loved by so many. This is the measure of a very successful man. Thank you for being the friend and inspiration you are to so many. God Bless you and yours.. Gary Accardo

  30. Caleb, It’s been a long time since we hung out…but I’ll never forget the good ol’ days in Palos Verdes. It seems like there’s no right time to pass on- “Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.” From what I’ve read you’ve made a substantial impact on many lives and you will always be remembered. My condolences go out to Amy, your family, and the many people who will miss you.

  31. I know of Caleb and what a great person he is through his good friend Jeffrey. I heard Caleb’s name come out of Jeffrey’s mouth constantly and they were always good things, which was rare because Jeffrey was a firm believer that he was better than everyone else. Caleb was the exception. My heart goes out to Caleb’s wife, Amy, his family, and friends. I know Jeffrey is already teaching him the ropes up there.

  32. Our most heartfelt condolences to Caleb’s family. Caleb was a wonderful young man and was our son, Jeffrey’s role model and idol. They were great friends and enjoyed each other’s company and each other’s spirit for life. Caleb is in many photos with my son taken during parties held in our house when we were away and it’s obvious that they had a great time together. Now they’re together again having a good time and bringing a little noise to heaven. Caleb will be missed by all who knew him but his memory will live forever.

  33. Dear Haskell Family, I am so sad to hear about the tragic passing of Caleb who I grew up with in Palos Verdes. Amy, you have my deepest sympathy in your loss. My heart goes out to you and your families.
