Cade M. Calvert

Cade Michael Calvert, age 13 of Collinsville, IL, born June 5, 2001 in Maryville, IL, passed away at 3:55 pm on Monday, December 29, 2014 at the Franklin County Hospital in Benton, IL. 

Cade was attending 8th grade at the Collinsville Middle School.  He enjoyed woodworking, loved playing soccer and baseball, and was a super athlete. Cade was full of life and this world would be a much better place if we, even as adults, would follow Cade’s example.  He was very compassionate, smart, creative, and above all, he loved Jesus Christ with all of his heart. 

Cade was an awesome big brother to Conner and Cailey.  His favorite memory verse was Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”.  He was a member of First Baptist Church of Collinsville Youth Group, FCA and National Junior Honor Society. 

He is survived by his parents, Chad Michael and Lisa M. nee McFall Calvert of Collinsville, IL; a brother, Conner James Calvert; and a sister, Cailey Marie Calvert, both of Collinsville; grandparents:  Jim and Doris McFall of Collinsville, IL and Linda and (the late) Terry Calvert, Sr. of New Baden, IL; great grandparents:  Robert and Annette Lynch of New Baden, IL.  He was loved and will be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. 

The Calvert family would like to thank everyone for their prayers.  They want to give God the GLORY and have peace in knowing that Cade is with God in heaven. Cade will be missed by many, but his legacy will live on in our hearts forever.
