Calvin Lee Robertson
11 junio , 1986 – 13 julio , 2019
Calvin Lee Robertson, 33, of Lake Jackson, Texas went home on July 13, 2019. Calvin was born on June 11, 1986 to Wesley Robertson, and Lisa Wilson Notgrass. Calvin was called home way too soon. But, only for those of us left behind. He was ready to join our Lord, and the loved ones who has gone before. He was a God fearing Christian man. He loved, and liked everyone he met. He was a friend to everyone. He lived his life as such, that he touched everyone in a special way. He instantly welcomed you as his friend. With everyone, he had a certain gift to make you laugh in any circumstance. His love for his family was immense. He was an awesome big brother to his sisters, which he dearly loved. His best friend, and buddy, was his grandfather, Robert Wilson. They did everything together. Which, he too left us 1yr, and 1day before him. We rejoiced knowing that he was there to greet him, and walk him home, to the Kingdom of Heaven. Together again, they laugh and joke, as they had always done. His sense of humor was never lacking. And, his laugh was infectious. He had a passion for comic books, and superhero action figures. Which he avidly collected. His wide circle of friends, which he worked with, as a job in this field, dearly loved him. As it turned out, Calvin himself, became a true to life superhero. At the age of 29, he was diagnosed with a rare, unknown form of Alzheimer’s. When he was accepted as a case study patient, it gave him a new perspective of his unfortunate condition. Instead of being downhearted with what he knew he would be facing, he instead knew that the research with him, could save lives in the future. And, it will. Maybe not in our lifetimes. But, in time. He was so kindhearted with those less fortunate. If he knew someone was with out their lunch that day, he would give up his cash, or lunch, so they could eat. And, he gladly went without. He wished that everyone in this world could be that way. He lived his life clean from the vices of drugs, and alcohol. And, with great respect for his elders. He was the perfect example, of what a man should be. Which makes it more heartbreaking for those of us still here on earth, to have lost such a bright shining light. But, he is glorious now. His body is whole again, at the foot of our Lord’s throne. “He is now, truly home.”

Calvin was my "great"-nephew in every sense of the word. I didn't get to know him until he was in his teens, but I quickly saw what a delightful young man he was. We lived hundreds of miles apart, but we visit through lengthy phone calls and my occasional visits to the Houston area.
It was a pleasure to visit Calvin, even during the long period of his illness. His mischievous smile and that little impish twinkle in his eye never diminished. That is the way I will always remember Calvin.
