Caleb Rockafield

Caleb Rockafield, born to this earth Aug. 6, 1999, departed this earth Nov. 6, 2019 forever to be with his Lord and Savior.

Caleb enjoyed God and the beauty of His creation, his family and friends, the family’s animals, music, helping people, and anything with an engine in it. While living in St. Germain, he worked at Knitt’s Hardware, Blink Bonnie, Spang’s, and Golden Pines. He had a great zest for life and lived it full throttle. 

The family that love him and remain are his parents Mark and Diane Rockafield, siblings Ruth and husband Jordan Slominski, Rebekah, Ezekiel, Josiah, and Lyla; grandmothers Patricia Rockafield and Luella Sherren as well as many uncles, aunts, and cousins. All are welcome to join the family at St. Germain Evangelical Free Church on Friday, Nov. 22. We will begin to gather at 2 p.m., service at 4 p.m. with dinner to follow. If Caleb has touched your life, we would like you to be with us.

Caleb’s ashes will be lovingly sequestered in the majestic Alaskan wilderness that filled him with awe and wonder. 

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 The Message (MSG): 13-14, “And regarding the question, friends, that has come up about what happens to those already dead and buried, we don’t want you in the dark any longer. First off, you must not carry on over them like people who have nothing to look forward to, as if the grave were the last word. Since Jesus died and broke loose from the grave, God will most certainly bring back to life those who died in Jesus.”

15-18, “And then this: We can tell you with complete confidence — we have the Master’s word on it — that when the Master comes again to get us, those of us who are still alive will not get a jump on the dead and leave them behind. In actual fact, they’ll be ahead of us. The Master himself will give the command. Archangel thunder! God’s trumpet blast! He’ll come down from heaven and the dead in Christ will rise — they’ll go first. Then the rest of us who are still alive at the time will be caught up with them into the clouds to meet the Master. Oh, we’ll be walking on air! And then there will be one huge family reunion with the Master. So reassure one another with these words.”
