The Guest Book is expired.
From the start, Kaileb was a caregiver. As an example, when he was in kindergarten, he took his Power Wheels Jeep to school to give his classmates rides home, much to the chagrin of the teacher. He had a very inquisitive mind, sharp intellect, artistic ability and was very creative. He loved to build things with Legos. He enjoyed cross-country running and was awarded several medals; enjoyed softball and had great interest in football (49ers fan). Later in life, he was an avid computer user and created his own electronic music. His love for Marvel and especially his hero, Spiderman, was out of this world. Kaileb struggled with many things in life and faced these challenges with the courage of a superhero and continued to be a fun-loving grounded young man with a great sense of humor, full of hugs which he gave long and often. He is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Kaileb is survived by: his mother, Rhenon Williams of Bozeman, Montana; father, Will Shelton of Three Forks, Montana; sister Taylee Maughan of Smithfield, Utah; sister Bella Pearl Williams of Coleville, Washington; sisters Kataya and Alyvia Jackson of Cache Valley, Utah; stepfather, CJ Maughan of Smithfield, Utah; fiance Rita Daniel of Bozeman; stepdaughter Ameliah of Bozeman; grandparents, Rick and Eloise Williams of Bozeman; grandmother Maxine Daniel of Gallatin Gateway, Montana; grandparents, DeVerl and Joy Maughan of Smithfield, Utah; great-grandmother, Norma Daniel of Gallatin Gateway; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
