On Monday, November 9, 2020, Clinton Calhoun Jr. departed his life to an eternal rest. Clinton was born on July 21, 1928, in Bunkie, Louisiana to the parents of Clinton and Lucile Calhoun. After graduating from Peabody High School in Alexandria, LA, Clinton moved north with family in search of a better opportunity. He eventually settled in Lorain, Ohio. There, he found work at National Tube Co. (U.S. Steel plant). While working, he was drafted into the Korean War in 1950. He served two years in the Army and was Honorably Discharged. Upon his return to civilian life, he continued his career working for U.S. Steel where he retired after 38 years.

During his golden years, Clinton enjoyed a quiet yet productive retirement lifestyle. He dedicated much of his time serving his community as a Jehovah’s Witness, teaching the word to others and hosting Bible study sessions at his home. He was a big family man, frequently traveling to attend family functions, such as graduations, reunions, and weddings during joyous times, and funerals during times of sorrow. He was a warm, kind spirited, humble gentleman who was always there for his family and friends. He was well known and respected throughout the Lorain, OH community, and usually sought to provide advice, a kind word, and helping hand.

In his past time, Clinton enjoyed gardening, cooking, watching the news, sports & game shows, and attending sporting events. He was an avid fan of the Cleveland Browns, Indians, and Cavaliers. He enjoyed spending early morning hours sipping on coffee while reading the newspaper. He especially loved spending time with his children, grandchildren, Kingdom Hall family, and other relatives.

He's survived by his brother, Moses Calhoun, his seven children: Kathleen Calhoun-Smith, Charles Calhoun, Anthony Calhoun, Clinton Calhoun III, Zachary S. Calhoun, Jennifer Sutton, and Pamela Sutton; Tangie Calhoun-Jackson; as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Clinton was a hero that will be forever missed.

Clinton is preceded in death by his father Clinton Calhoun Sr, mother Lucile Calhoun, brother Jonas Calhoun, sisters Willa Horace, Sadie Moss, Effie Taylor, and Kathryn Chapel; John (Bud) Calhoun; and three former wives, Sarah, Leola, and Miriam.

Will certainly miss brother Calhoun. He was a good friend and a good brother. Will miss our perch dinners at Chris’s Cafe on the lake in Lorain, Oh. Thankfully he is in his Father Jehovah’s loving memory.

To All, My father was beyond special to me and will never be forgotten. I'm sure he's smiling and overwhelmed with the many condolences, well wishes and large number of family and friends able to attend the services in Dallas, Texas after living the majority of his adult life in Lorain, Ohio. I, as the son, thank all of you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you,
Anthony Calhoun

On behalf of the Walton family, I want to express my sincerest condolences to the Calhoun family. Mr. Calhoun was a very good friend to my late father Harold Walton for many years. I remember Mr. Calhoun being a very loving and caring father to his three sons and a very good family man and an excellent role model to young men everywhere. May God bless the family with comfort during this difficult time and surround you all with love and support. Love, Pam Walton-Weston

Please accept our condolences for the loss of your dear father and beloved family member. We have known "Bug" for many, many years. He was a best friend of my mother-in-law, Mary Odom. She passed away in '85. But we knew him before we all became Witnesses and he was a good friend. I always lovingly called him Jitterbug, "Bug" for short. I missed him when he moved to TX and I will miss him even more knowing he's waiting to be remembered by Jehovah God. Sam and Betty Odom.

Some knew him as father, friend, confidante, husband, and so on, but I knew him as Granddad. I remember being a little girl and granddad scrubbing me down in the bathtub. He made sure we were always clean and well taken care of. While that may seem trivial, it still lasts in my memory as of today. He was the best cook, an excellent gardener, always made time for friends and family, he was an honest person, and a blessing to those that knew him. Even a few days before his last breathe, he was making jokes and keeping it real. I love you granddad and will miss you! Love you forever!
