Caleb W. Stockmaster, age 24, of Castalia, passed away Monday evening, August 24, 2020, in his residence, surrounded by his family and friends, after a long, courageous battle with cancer.
He was born May 3, 1996, in Bellevue, and graduated from Margaretta High School in 2015. Caleb was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, Sandusky. While attending Margaretta High School, Caleb was a triple threat athlete, participating in football, wrestling and track. He was a state qualifier during his junior and senior year of wrestling and was a state placer his senior year. Upon graduation he continued his wrestling career at the collegiate level with division 1 Kent State. He then transferred to Cleveland State where he placed 3rd in the All American Open and took 1st place in the Storm Open. During his spare time, he made it a priority to give back to his Alma Mater, the Margaretta Wrestling Program and be an assistant coach. He was an athlete from birth with a true fighting spirit. Giving up was not in his blood. He was a wonderful son, a kind and caring brother, and a compassionate uncle. Those who were blessed to call him friend, know that Caleb was selfless and was always just a call a way. We would like him to be remembered as a true and courageous fighter.
He is survived by his mother and step father Veronica and Michael Spayd; father Francis Stockmaster; two sisters Natasha McCowan and Taylor Stockmaster; brother Brock (Heather) Thompson; grandfather Lanny Gilbert Sr.; nieces Madelynn Evans and Rosalie Thompson; and nephew Jackson Thompson.
Caleb was preceded in death by maternal grandmother Joan Perry and paternal grandparents Elton and Patricia Baum.
