(KSL News) A boy who died when a sand cave collapsed around him was laid to rest today.

Friends and family remembered 12-year-old Caleb Williams as someone who made a positive impact on everyone. He loved the outdoors, was an exemplary student and a well-known wrestler. Williams held 32 national championships, 17 state championships and 42 All-American finishes.

He died last Friday at the Little Sahara Recreation Area when a sand cave he was digging collapsed on top of him.
