With deepest sorrow, we announce that Caleb Ray Avis, age 23, who was born November 25, 1996 in Ogden, Utah our beloved son, brother, family member and friend passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, June 21, 2020 at his home in Boise, Idaho.
Those who knew Caleb, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives.
Caleb will be missed everyday by his parents Jennifer & Jason Dunn and Del & Christi Avis as well as his siblings Jordan Avis, Benjamin (Halle) Avis, and Emmaline Avis, and his step brothers Coulton (Alyse) Hirschi, Landon Hirschi, Nathan Hirschi, Caleb Hirschi, and Zachary Hirschi. Heartbroken are his fiancé Mya Jenni, 2 great grandmothers,
10 grandparents, numerous extended family members, and many great friends.
We know Caleb is now with his “Pa” Aaron Beard and “Grandpa” Rex Avis, and his dear dog Crunchy.
He was deeply committed to Wildland Firefighting where he felt he was making a real difference and giving back to nature. He adored being outdoors whether fishing, camping or hiking. He was fiercely loyal to his family and friends, there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for them.
He was a hard working guy who was still the life of the party and always up for good clean fun. His kindness and compassion knew no boundaries. Oh, how he will be missed by us all.

Love brought Caleb into this world, love molded his life and love will keep him alive in the hearts and memories of all who knew him. So God’s love is proved by His memory of Caleb too, in every detail. If not one sparrow falls to the ground without God’s notice, certainly he will not forget the life of this special young man, Caleb Avis. Matthew 10:29,31; John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:29. My condolences to family and friends.
