Maleruski, gazterik utzi gaitu, xangre edo minbiziarekin duela urte batzuk hona izaten ari zen burruka galdurik, René Caballero euskal kaliforniarrak, Ezterenzubiko jatorriduna.
Doluminak bere emazte Rosemary (Etchamendy) Caballerori; seme-alaba Amaia eta Anthonyri; ama Juanitari; eta oseba-izeba, lehengusu, gainerako ahaide eta lagun ugariei.
Bere hil-oharra ez da lerro hauek idaztean atera oraindik, baina badakigu bere arimaren aldeko elizkizunak (errosario, meza eta ehorzketa) irailaren 25ean, astelehena, egingo direla Rocklin-en (Kalifornia), St Peter eta and Paul elizan, goizeko hamarretatik aurrera.
Besteak beste, Amerikanuak taldearekin grabatua zuen azken hilabeteetan, "Azkenean" diskoa, danborra eta bateria jotzea gustukoa baitzuen, klikakide ohia ere bazelarik.

Rene Caballero was a beautiful soul, whose love for life will always be remembered by his family and friends. Rene was born on March 20, 1971 in San Francisco, CA to Raymond and Juanita. During his life, he caused a ton of smiles and a few gray hairs. He was a talented drummer, hard worker, a great friend, and boy was he fun!
In December 1999, he married the love of his life, Rose Marie. Their daughter, Amaia, and son, Anthony, were blessed to have a father who would do anything for them. Through his example, they were taught the values of hard work and dedication to family. Together they made beautiful memories, camping, fishing, attending Basque festivals, or just hanging out. He was a thoughtful husband, father, and friend. Rene may have been an only child but will be dearly missed by many brothers and sisters. Those who were lucky enough to call him family or friend will forever cherish their time with him.
Rene battled cancer like a warrior for three years; always putting on a brave face so as to not worry those around him. He fought through and continued to work to the very end. He even found energy to play drums for others and DJ to keep the party going.
On September 16, 2017, heaven gained an angel named Rene. He will be terribly missed and forever in our hearts. He is preceded in death by his father (Raymond), his great uncle (Gus) and great aunt (Juana). He is survived by his wife (Rose Marie), children (Amaia and Anthony), mother (Juanita), cousin (Rosemary and Fred), many cousins, in laws (Martin and Maria Teresa), sister in laws, brother in laws, and nieces and nephews.
The service will be held at SS. Peter and Paul Church, 4450 Granite Drive, Rocklin, Ca 95677. The ceremony at Rene's final resting place will follow at Newcastle Cemetery, 850 Taylor Road, Newcastle, CA. A reception will immediately follow at SS. Peter and Paul Church hall.
