Kaleb Jade Owens was born on July 9, 2002. He is the son of Randall and Dana Owens of Fayette, and is the brother of Kinley Owens. Kaleb's biggest accomplishment in life was being a Christian. He was baptized at the age of 16 at Southside Baptist Church. He wanted to let the world know about his Savior Jesus Christ. He was a wonderful son and big brother.
A member of the FCHS Class of 2021, Kaleb participated in numerous tean sports. He played wide receiver on the football team; pitcher, catcher, and 2nd baseman on the baseball team; and was a part of the bass fishing team. Kaleb also played on numerous travel ball and All-Star teams from tee-ball through high school. In 2017, Kaleb played on a USA baseball team in Cape Town, South Africa.
In his spare time, Kaleb enjoyed roping, riding four-wheelers, and listening to a wide variety of music. Loud. Kaleb's smooth moves and rugged good looks won him the hearts of many. His smile was always genuine, and his eyes were ever focused on those closest to him.
Always a prankster, Kaleb was full of never-ending mischief. His love for life, family, and fun was infectious. To know him was to love him. He was a friend to everyone and never met a stranger. We love you BIG.
