Caleb Robert Brown, 22, of Greensburg, passed away on March 4, 2018. He was born on May 5, 1995, in Greensburg, the son of James and Melissa (Wells) Brown. Caleb was a 2014 graduate of Greensburg High School. He was on the Special Olympics Basketball and Bowling teams. Caleb was co-owner of Port-A-Let’s Sanitation with his Dad. To those who knew and loved him, Caleb was a lot of things. Caleb was their daily phone call. The one who always returned a smile. To some he was a lunch buddy and to some he was a sports reporter giving you all the updates. Caleb was a proud Pirates fan, but most of all he was a true blue Kentucky fan. Caleb could tell you all the details about NASCAR, driver’s, race teams, and the points chase. He was always ready to give you a dry witted comment to a story. He was the best at every sport on PlayStation and was quick to say, “Hey did you hear…” and proceed to tell you about one of his games, like it had really happened. Caleb enjoyed going out every day with his Dad in the pump truck, quick to give directions and remind Jamie of all the places to go clean. Drag racing with his Dad & Special Olympics were his favorite past times. He was excited about winning with his basketball team and was awarded the Special Olympics Athlete in 2017. Caleb and his smile touched the lives of everyone that was lucky enough to have known him.

“Remember that time when Caleb put a stranger’s phone in your purse”
One of my favorite memories of Caleb is when we were shopping in Edinburg and were in a store and he told me that my phone was coming out of my purse and that he “put it back”, then about 10 minutes later, I hear a strange ring in my purse and I look and it isn’t my phone. I thought it was Caleb’s. It wasn’t. A stranger comes over and asks if that was her phone and that she was looking everywhere for it. He picked up a stranger’s phone and put it in my purse, thinking it was mine. And I walked around the whole store with it. We laughed so hard.
