He found peace and tranquility at local fishing holes with his siblings and passed that on to his daughter Natalia, immensely enjoying those special times with her. He was deeply devoted to his mother, siblings and other extended family, always looking to help where and how he could. He was also strongly committed to his circle of friends. He loved home cooked meals (as well as the leftovers he would get to take home), Dunkin Donuts coffee, drawing, and working with computers, audio systems, and an endless array of gizmos and gadgets.
We can all learn lessons from the way Kalem lived; to love deeply, smile often and laugh heartily with those closest to us.
