Caleb Moore was born August 28, 1987 in Ft. Worth, TX to Mr. Wade Moore and Mrs. Michele (Bentley) Moore. He graduated half a year early from Krum High School and started traveling doing quad and snowmobile freestyle riding. Caleb and his brother, Colten practiced hours and hours perfecting his tricks by launching his sled and four-wheelers into a foam pit at home in Krum, TX.
Because of his amazing talent he rose quickly to the top, having only practiced snowmobiling for a brief time before medaling in the X Games. He was a four-time X Games medalist. Caleb was known as an innovative rider, having stated that his first back flip on an all-terrain four-wheeler at the age of 19, was the most exciting moment of his life. Caleb and his brother traveled the world and made a lasting impression on millions of lives. He had a natural passion for life and a deep love for his family and friends. Many describe Caleb as a role model for living out your dreams to the fullest. He will be missed by many worldwide.
Caleb Moore is survived by his parents of Krum, TX; his brother, Colten Moore of Corinth, TX; grandparents Charles and Butch Moore of Wheeler, TX; Larry and Vickie Barrow of Paradise, TX; Ed and Terri Bentley of Fort Worth, TX.
