Obituary

Calvin Lee Hester
Sept. 3, 1924 - Aug. 24, 2020

Calvin Lee Hester 95, of Waco passed away Monday, August 24, 2020. Services will be held Sunday, August 30 at 1pm at OakCrest Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Chilton Cemetery. Visitation will be held Saturday, August 29 from 2 to 4pm at the funeral home.

Calvin was born September 3, 1924 in Heidenheimer, Texas to William Thomas Hester and Jane Emily Mayfield Hester. He proudly served his country in the US Army and was a POW during WWII. He worked at the Veteran’s Hospital for many years.

Calvin loved the outdoors, deer hunting and fishing and loved to dance. His mantra was that he was not a senior citizen but a “recycled teenager” and he delighted in telling his grandchildren that he loved them BOA (Best Of All).

Calvin was preceded in death by his parents; wives, Josephine Latham Hester and Alma Louise Hester; and daughter, Twila Gail Hester Davis and grandson Ryan Davis. He is survived by daughter Carolyn Lee Hester of Chilton and son, David Lee Hester and wife, Cindy of Crawford.

He is also survived by his grandson Shane Davis and wife Shannon of Minnesota, granddaughters Sarah Hester Robison and husband Daniel of Salado and Anne Cates and husband Jacob of Woodway.

His great grandchildren are Gibson, Ayden, Jonah, Autumn, Leo, and Eleanor.

The family would like to thank the staff at Greenview Manor for the loving care they gave to Calvin.

I first met Mr. Calvin at the old Winn-Dixie Grocery Store on Hwy. 6 and Sanger Ave. store!! He was sacking groceries and carrying them out to peoples cars!! And then he would start talking to customers and me!! This is when I found out that he lived right around the corner from me in Our little Community north-west of Lake Waco!! Then, he got to where he would stop bu and talk to me when he saw me outside working in-the-yard! And I enjoyed talking to him as much as he enjoyed talking to me!! And I would see him and his wife Louise drive by, and They would honk their horn and wave as they passed by!! I enjoyed both of them as Neighbors when they lived out here!! Both will be greatly missed!! I'm very sorry to see/read that Mr. Calvin has passed away!! He sure was lively , enjoyed Life, and people!! And most of his days were good ones!!! Thoughts/Condolences/Prayers to his Family and many Friends!! And, I should have talked to him more, because I now find out about his Military History, after he is gone!! Rest-In-Peace Mr. Calvin!! You are in the hands of the LORD now!!! May GOD bless 'each' of his Family members!! And let us remember all of the good/fun times that we had with Mr. Calvin!!
