Calab Ryan Pentlin

Calab Ryan Pentlin, 20, of Kansas City, Missouri, has passed away on July 3rd, 2018. He was born on June 7th, 1998, the son of Andrea McGimpsey and Chad Pentlin. He graduated early from Raytown High School and chose to walk with his classmates at graduation. He was employed with Kenny’s Tile and Flooring Co. and was talented with his way with people, and with his hands.
Calab was a hard worker and gave everything he could to help those in need. He cared deeply about his family and was always reaching out to them, even just to check in. He made friends easily and kept in touch, even if they had grown apart. He was an avid lover of animals, especially dogs, and always assisted with fostering and taking care of the many in his life. One of his hobbies was fishing, and he would go on frequent fishing trips with friends and family, sometimes bringing his dogs with him. Calab was a man of many interests and it drew people to him. He always had something in common with people that he could build on and forge long-lasting friendships and relationships with.
Calab is survived by his parents, Andrea and Chad, his step-mother Natalie; his sister Brianna, half-brother Ryan and step-sister Destanie. He is also survived by both maternal and paternal grandparents, several aunts and uncles, as well as cousins. He also leaves behind his girlfriend, Sadie Rann, and several close friends.
Cremation and memorial services are being handled by Heartland Burial & Cremation Society, and visitation will be held July 11th, 2018 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

    I just got to meet Calab on Facebook on Monday night June 2nd. He was my great nephew, he and I were both excited to meet and looking forward to getting to know one another. In less than 24 hours, Calab was gone.
    It is my hope and prayer that, the sweet fragrance of his life, will linger forever in the hearts in the minds of those who knew and loved him. I pray that Calab’s spirit will live on in those that he left behind. Where there is hate, I pray that you find grace and mercy, and show kindness and find forgiveness. Where there is anger, I pray that you will find happiness and joy. Where there is loneliness, I pray that you will insulate yourselves with good people and build a community of love and support around each of you.

    In doing these things you will honor Calab’s life, with the same love and kindness that he has shown others his whole life.
    My heart aches for each of you. I cannot imagine your pain. I pray to the only one who does understand your pain.
    I Promise You Jesus Will carry you through these deep waters, and you will find rest in his arms.

    I cannot be there in person, I will be there in spirit, and of course interceding for each of you in prayer.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I had Calab in my technical theatre class his senior year and it is true—he was great with his hands. He helped build several sets for our shows that semester and I enjoyed having him in class. He was kind and a leader. He will be truly missed.
