A Texas man who led a group of “Freedom Defenders” against mask restrictions died of COVID-19 on Saturday at age 30.
Caleb Wallace left behind three children and a pregnant wife.
His wife, Jessica, announced her husband’s death on a GoFundMe page that had detailed his fight with COVID-19 the past few weeks.
Wallace had been unconscious since Aug. 8, The San Angelo Standard-Times reported.
Jessica Wallace said her husband got sick in late July, but “was so hard-headed.”.
“He didn’t want to see a doctor, because he didn’t want to be part of the statistics with COVID tests,” she said.
Jessica Wallace told the newspaper she didn’t always share her husband’s views and that she wears a mask. »
