Calvin, "Tom" Thomas W. ESCONDIDO -- Long time Escondido resident, Thomas "Tom" Wesley Calvin entered his eternal life on Sunday, June 15, 2014 at the age of 67 after a long battle with COPD. He spent his final days at home. Tom, the oldest of eight children, was born in San Francisco,CA, moving to Escondido as a young teen. He spent his life as a proud Teamster in Local 36, driving rock trucks, water trucks, belly dumps and various other construction vehicles. He was a strong union supporter, a union steward, a strike captain in the only Teamster strike in San Diego County and very hard worker. He served as a commission member on the City of Escondido Housing Commission. Before becoming ill, he could be found fixing cars, doing yard work, woodworking, as well as taking his family off- roading in Ocotillo Wells. He was also an avid Nascar fan. Tom is survived by Cherie, his wife of 47 years; two daughters: Robin Ford of Escondido, CA., and Carrie Higgins of Temecula, CA; as well as six grandchildren- ages 2 - 25 years. He is also survived by six siblings and 13 nephews and nieces. He was preceded in death by his parents, stepfather and one brother. He will be laid to rest at 10 am on Monday, June 23, 2014 at Oak Hill Memorial Park in Escondido. Relatives and friends of Tom are invited to attend. Arrangements are by Alhiser-Comer Mortuary.
