Caleb Elias Goforth of Elkland, Pennsylvania passed suddenly on Thursday, June 29, 2023. Caleb was born in Renton, Washington on November 21, 1979, the day before Thanksgiving. Caleb moved with his family to Wellsboro, Pennsylvania in March 1989. He graduated from Wellsboro Area High School in June of 1998 and then after a short jaunt to Seattle, he joined the Marines. He fought in Iraq and came home. He went to college in Indiana, PA and worked as a diesel mechanic for Genesee & Wyoming Railroad. Caleb married Madeleine Hodge in 2017, cared greatly for his stepson, Alex, and completed his family with the arrival of his daughter, Peyton Camille. Caleb was proud of his service in the Marines and greatly enjoyed working for the railroad. He enjoyed playing pool with the leagues, riding his dirt bike and golfing. At family gatherings, we could count on Caleb to keep the fire going. He liked creating a fireworks show and was absolutely the best at it.
Caleb is survived by his wife, Madeleine, his stepson, Alex and his daughter, Peyton. He is also survived by his parents, Renee and Karl Hider, his sisters: Alexis (Lon) Savini; Poppy (Jared) Breining and Jessi Hider, and his brothers: Silas Goforth and Wesley (Cat) Hider; his many nieces and nephews, his maternal grandparents, Clyde & Theo Derting, his many aunts and uncles and cousins both here and out West, his grandmother, Kathleen Hider, as well as his wife's grandparents: Jerry and Susan Metzler, whom he loved. He is also survived by his biological father, Herschel Goforth, his Aunt Nancey and his Uncle Jerry.
