November 03, 2014

The funeral for W. Caleb Wharton '16 will be held on Friday, November 7, at 11 AM at St. Mary's Episcopal Church, 12291 River Road, Richmond.  Caleb, a junior at Hampden-Sydney College, died in an vehicle accident on Sunday, November 2.

In a statement issued Sunday evening, Hampden-Sydney President Christopher Howard said, "There is no way to fully express the sense of loss that the Hampden-Sydney community feels at the death of Caleb Wharton, a junior from Richmond and brother of us all. Our hearts go out to his parents, family, and friends. 

As John Donne wrote, 'Any man's death diminishes me,' and Caleb's death has diminished us all. In the days ahead, we will pray together and grieve together and plan how most appropriately to celebrate Caleb's life and mark his passing."
