A marvelous young man has recently left the world a better place for having been here. Caleb Daniel Acheson, son of Eric and Emily Leonard and Stephen Acheson, returned to his heavenly home Thursday, May 3, 2012.

He came into this world Jan. 26, 1996.

He has four adoring brothers who will greatly miss him: Shane, Seth, Clinton and Brock. He was their leader, their protector, their friend and their example.

Caleb was born in Alaska and quickly developed a love for the great outdoors. He enjoyed fishing, hiking, camping, hunting and white-water rafting. He had no fear and was always looking for a new adventure. He liked baseball, soccer, swimming and cooking for our family. He loved to fly and aspired to be a pilot. He was a big fan of superheroes, but to us, HE was the superhero! He loved Scouting and was an amazing Boy Scout. He earned his Eagle Scout award at 14 years of age by organizing and conducting a lifesaving bone marrow drive, even though he was very ill and in the hospital at the time. He was currently working as a den chief and loved helping younger Scouts learn.

Caleb battled his illness for 12 years, yet was always optimistic, smiling and cheerful. He was amazing at applying humor and wit in the face of challenges and adversity. He always kept us laughing and never gave up the fight. He was a strong, mighty young man in a very weak and frail body. He endured an incredible amount of pain and suffering with no complaints. He was sweet, gentle and considerate.

He is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and showed extraordinary faith in his Heavenly Father's plan. He set an example of a Christ-like life for everyone around him with his courage, strength and love for all.

We have been so blessed to have Caleb in our lives, and we are very thankful for the 16 years we were privileged to have with him. He was a shining light who inspired everyone around him to be better. We want everyone to remember him and that he really lived! A memorial service for Caleb will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 12, at the St. Leon Chapel, 6925 N. 15th East in Idaho Falls. Scout uniforms are encouraged.
