I remember playing Kalli Kubista at Legends pool hall when we were teenagers. He was very good and had a lot of natural talent. We played on the same team in VNEA jr nationals in Mankato, MN where we took 2nd place. I have a lot of memories with Kalli growing up. I will miss his fiestiness when we played against our opponents. He had a good spirit! Never would of expected him to be gone this soon. I will miss you bud! Hugs and Love to all his family and friends. Phil Boyer

Kalli was one good friend in high school and after. I always stuck up and helped him out as much as I could. We had great times playing pool, video games, and hanging out after school. I also knew his family pretty well, brother, sister, and parents. He always loved his Jordan shoes and we played alot basketball together. They were/are all great people. I sent a prayer out for Kalli and his family :) Time goes by to fast, we all need to cherish what we have on earth. Prayers go out. Need any support Kubista's feel free to email anytime.

I remember kalli growing up playing junior pool league. He was always a top player in juniors, i never understood why he just stopped playing and stopped competing, and i may never know that one. He would have been a player in this state that would have been very recognized for sure. I remember also seeing you about 2 years ago in faribault walking on a really cold day and i had too stop and give you a ride. Rip kalli
