Mr. Donald Lee Calvert, age 90 years, of Jefferson City, Mo. passed away Thursday, January 21, 2021 at home surrounded by his loving family.

Don was born on October 18, 1930 in Springfield, Mo. a son of Robert Carl and Estalene (Pace) Calvert. He was married on June 4, 1960 in Osceola, Mo. to Norma Ruth Wilson, who survives at the home.

Don was a 1949 graduate of Lamar High School and a 1955 graduate of the University of Missouri with a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering.

He began his career as a civil engineer with the Missouri State Highway Department directly out of college. He served in this capacity for 37 years with the highway department (currently known as MoDOT) until he retired in 1992.

Don possessed a strong faith and was passionate about serving his Lord. He was an active member of First Baptist Church in Jefferson City since 1960. He served as a deacon, volunteered in the church nursery, drove the church bus and helped as a Sunday school teacher. Don also enjoyed volunteering at Habitat for Humanity.

Don kept his mind sharp by doing crossword puzzles, cryptograms, and enjoyed studying genealogy.

Survivors include: his loving wife of 60 years, Norma Calvert; four children, Wendell Wilson of Marietta, Ga., Kathy Alpers (Robert) of Prairie Home, Mo., Carolyn Jett (Paul) of Butler, Mo., and Charlie Calvert (Kathy) of Mt. Vernon, Il; one sister, Dorothy Donley of Rock, Ks.; eleven beloved grandchildren and eleven beloved great-grandchildren; his special brother and sister-in-law, Bill and Ruth Ann Hash; and several nieces and nephews.

Don was preceded in death by his parents; daughter-in-law, Kay (Haselhorst) Wilson; one brother, David Calvert; one brother-in-law, Lawrence Donley; and one great-grandson, Ryan Henderson.

A private memorial service will be conducted on Sunday, January 24, 2021 in the Freeman Chapel with the Reverend Rod Maples officiating. A webcast of Mr. Calvert’s service will begin at 1:00 p.m. Sunday for extended family and friends that are not able to attend by going to his memorial page on Freeman Mortuary’s website.

Private graveside services will be held at Gentry Cemetery in Quincy, Mo. at a later time.
