Joseph Louis Caulboy

Joseph Louis Caulboy passed away in the early hours of March 11th, 2024, at his home in Cameron Park, CA with his loving family by his side after a courageous fight with pancreatic cancer. He was preceded in death by his parents, and his sister, Trina. Joe is survived by his caring wife and best friend, Theresa, his children Angela (Clinton), Bryan (Becky), Tara (Jose) & Steven (Lori) Caulboy; his grandchildren, Dylan, Jordan, Brenden, Isabella, Andrea, Damian, Cristiano, Dorian, Ruben, Aeris & Russell; sisters Linda and Marcie; brothers Paul (Claudette) and Peter (Cheri) and a host of nieces, nephews, dear friends and family members.

Born in Oakland, California on November 4th, 1954, to Louis and Mary Caulboy, he was the fourth child of six siblings. It was said he didn’t speak until he was almost 5 years old because his three older sisters were always talking for him. Joe graduated from St. Elizabeth High School, Cal State – East Bay and received his Master’s in Marriage, Family, Child Counseling from Phoenix University. He earned his college degrees while raising a family and working for UPS, which he retired from after 33 years. After retirement, he worked helping others in the mental health and social work field. He was also extremely proud of his faith and for the last twelve years was a Knight of Columbus (fourth degree).

Joe loved many things in life, some of the best-known things were games, whether it was board games, card games, computer games, but he got the most enjoyment from either watching his kids’ playing sports or playing games with his family and friends. In his later years, Magic the Gathering brought him the most enjoyment because he got to be competitive and spend time with his sons, grandchildren and life-long friends Nelson and Greg. He also loved building things, in his early years he would work on cars but later in life it was model cars, computers, watching movies and traveling with his beloved wife.

Joe’s battle with pancreatic cancer for 3 years was met with his usual positive attitude. He was not one to complain about the pain and always made the doctors and nurses laugh during his visits. Through his cancer journey, he taught others about humility and quiet submission to God.
The family will sorely miss his laid-back manner, his jokes, and the love he had for everyone he knew. Joe’s life will be celebrated at a funeral Mass at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Placerville on March 18 at 11am and he will be interred at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Sacramento, California.
