Home of: David and Cheritha Cale

MEEKER | This week’s “home of” honorees are Cheritha and David Cale of Meeker.
“I have lived in Meeker for more than 20 years. I came here to visit family and am still here. My kin have been in Meeker since the 1960s. David has lived here off and on growing up and moved here permanently after leaving the U.S. Navy in 1989. David was honorably discharged after serving in the United States Navy from 1985 to 1989 on board the USS Kalamazoo. We have been married 19 1/2 years,” Cheritha said.
Cheritha is a wife, stay-at-home mom and an independent consultant for Close to My Heart papercrafting and scrapbooking. Her first job, when she was 16, was at Walt Disney World, Fla. David has worked for the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) for six years as a highway maintenance worker.
Cheritha and David have both served with the St. James Episcopal church vestry. For the past 10 years, they have operated the sound system for the Meeker Championship Sheepdog Trials. Cheritha is also a SHARE program volunteer.
The Cales have been blessed with one child, Mathias Cale.
Cheritha’s family lives in Arizona. David’s family lives in Rangely.
“I enjoy creating scrapbook albums, papercrafting, preserving memories and doing genealogy. David is interested in video production. I like all the amazing opportunities Meeker has, the Rec Center, the great outdoors, the clean air and too many more things about here to name,” Cheritha added.
