Caleb William Aures

February 1, 1985 - September 9, 2011

It is with heavy hearts that we are informing you that our son, Caleb William Aures, went to be with the Lord suddenly on September 9, 2011. Caleb had many friends and was well loved by so many people from all over the country and the world. Caleb served his country well for six years as a U. S. Navy Nuclear Engineer Machinist Mate. He was kind, with a wry smile and had an infectious laugh. We are very proud of the man he was and blessed by having him in our lives for too short a time. We already miss him terribly. We thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. It all means so much to us. He is survived by his father and mother, Cy and Rosemary Aures; his siblings, Shane Marie (Aures) Krotz and husband, Erik, Keane E. Aures, and Erin Marie Aures and boyfriend, Jake Mendillo, all of Hartford, Connecticut; grandmother, Frances Pusey; aunt and uncle, Ellen M. and John Himmelreich; aunt and uncle, Patricia and William H. Pusey; and numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends considered to be family. There will be a viewing and visitation on Wednesday, September 14th, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Funeral Home in Allen, Texas. A memorial service will be held at the Woodlawn National Cemetery in Elmira, New York at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, September 17th. The interment service will be held on Sunday morning, September 18th at Bill and Patti Pusey’s Shearer Hill Farm B&B in Wilmington, VT.

I'm so sorry to learn of your loss. Please know that you are not alone. God will certainly be with you. He is "the Father of tender mercies" and the "God of all comfort". (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) He will soothe your hearts. Hold His promises near to your heart. (John 5:28; Rev. 21:3,4) Please accept my sincere sympathies. S Ford, September 20, 2011 I was in nuke school with Chuck in South Carolina and New York then stationed in Washington at the same time with him...he was a great person and friend. His laugh was infectious and whenever I think about him now a smile instinctively follows. He departed this world entirely too early and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Bring your awesomeness with you beyond this place, I love you buddy. Dan Gardner, September 15, 2011 I met Caleb in boot camp and I was instantly bonded with him. We were inseparable in Charleston and roomates in New York. We were both sent to Washington and he stayed in touch even though we were on opposite sides of Seattle. Caleb in one of the most unique and confident people I've ever met. I'll miss you bud. William Jonathan Smith, September 15, 2011 I am so deeply, deeply sorry for your loss. Wow. It's so hard to believe. I remember Caleb as a likable little kid. I pray for God's peace to continue to enfold you in the days to come. Susie Seifert (Chaffee), September 15, 2011 The first time I met caleb (besides at work, on the Lincoln) was outside of an ice cream shop on my way to a ferry. He lure me in with an offer of buying me ice cream. That night we had a date. During my relationship with caleb I had some of the best times of my life. My utter sympathy and condolences to his family. His memory will remain with love. Katherine Andrea Schaffer, September 15, 2011 I work with Ellen Himmelreich at Elmira College. She and her family are truly wonderful people. My God bless and comfort all of you during this time. May your memories of your loving son warm your hearts always. Sherry Trocino, September 14, 2011 Caleb was well liked by everyone, and it is a great loss for all. He will be missed. Wes Conkle, September 14, 2011 It was a true pleasure to know Chuck! I was lucky enough to serve with him on the Lincoln. He was the first person upon my arrival that reached out and instantly became my friend. I am so sorry for your loss and will never forget him. Liz Webster, September 14, 2011 We just learned of your sons passing . May it comfort you to know others care and are praying. May God be with you all at this time and always. Robert and Marlene Hammerly Hammerly, September 14, 2011 I was proud to serve with Caleb. He got along with everyone and was always to be depended on. He will be sorely missed from this life, but he is in a better place. We'll miss you buddy. Sean Robert Inserra, September 14, 2011
