David James Caballero

12-3-1976 - 1-9-2021

David was welcomed into the loving arms of the Lord on January 9, 2021. He was reunited with two grandmothers, a grandfather and his best friend, Brandon Peavy. He passed way from COVID-19.

David grew up in a loving and caring family in Temple City, Arcadia and Monrovia, CA. He moved to Indio with his parents Glen and Theresa in 2008.

Growing up, David was an all-around athlete. As a youngster he played little league, played football in high school and was on the swim team at Temple City High School where he graduated in 1995. He absolutely excelled in two things, water skiing and bowling. He learned how to ski when he was 10 years old. He was fearless and could cut a wall of water like nobody we'd ever seen. However, his true passion was bowling. He played in several leagues and in a professional series in the local Southern California area. He was a truly gifted bowler whose highlight was winning a national Sam's Town tournament in Las Vegas where he rolled a 299 (that darned 10 pin!) on his final game to shut everyone down!

The happiest moment of his life was the day he met his future wife and soulmate, Crystal. Talk about two people who were meant for each other. It was fun just watching them. They were two people so much in love. They were married on October 25, 2014. Not a phone call would go by without David talking about her. It was obvious she made him so happy.

David is survived by his loving soulmate Crystal and his constant companion, his Yorkie Sebastian, his loving parents Glen and Theresa Caballero, his brother Chris (Lisa) with niece and nephew Madison and Mason, and nephew and niece Peter and Vivian Marshall.

David was my first born. He made me a mom. It has been an incredibly painful two months now without him. My heart literally hurts. There is a huge hole in my heart that will never be repaired. I thank God for the 44 years of memories that he blessed us with. David if you can hear this, please know that I love you and miss you every minute of everyday. I vow to live the rest of my life with dignity and grace to make you proud. I will see you again one day in heaven.

David was like a second son to Dianne and me. We shared so many wonderful memories together as families. To truly know how incredible David really was to all of us, I must just share this one hilarious moment of so many. We were on Lake Meade and David and I came up with a skit to entertain all the adults on board (including my Mom and Dad who David adored).
All the kids including David all lying side by side upside down on the couch with their full bodies covered and only each of their faces upside down, we blasted Queens Bohemian Rhapsody song and they all lip synced the entire song. Upside down teeth and lips only moving, all the parents were laughing so hard they all literally pee’d their pants. I will never forget you David. I carry you in my heart forever ♥
