Weldon Brown Calvert, 94, of Quincy, formerly of Hannibal, died September 13, 2021, in Blessing Hospital.

Born, September 27, 1926, Weldon was born in Keokuk, Iowa, the son of Aubin and Elsie Brown Calvert.

In 1948 he married LaVerne Thomas. She died in 2005.

Weldon grew up in Revere, Mo. He served in the U.S. Navy during World War 2 in the South Pacific. After discharge, he began his studies at Hannibal LaGrange College, where he met LaVerne.

After marrying, he worked on the family farm. As his family grew, he continued working and went to Culver Stockton College to finish his degree. He became a teacher at Quincy Public Schools (Berrian School and Baldwin West) for thirty years.

Weldon's life was full with children, sports, church, animals, and friends. He often said the three things he did right were serving in the military, finishing college, and marrying the right girl.

Survivors include sons Tom Calvert of Hannibal and Jack Calvert (Alisha) of St. Louis, Mo.; daughters Betty Anders (Kerry) of Quincy and Jill Snare (Tim) of St. Louis, Mo.; 15 grandchildren; 27 great grandchildren; and special friend Fran Hays.

Mr. Calvert was a wonderful educator, and I was lucky to have been in his class for 5th and 6th grade. He prepared me well for the move to QJHS. I have many happy memories of those two school years. May he rest in peace. I send condolences to his family members and friends.
