Gregory Albert Calzada JR 10/08/1962- 12/28/2021 Somerville, TX

Gregory spent his childhood years in California and competed on the high school swim team. Gregory and his young bride moved to Texas, started a family and had three wonderful children.  Over the course of his professional life, he owned a landscaping company with his mother and was a diesel mechanic for John Deere.  He earned a degree in surgical technology and eventually became a Registered Nurse. 

Becoming a nurse afforded him the opportunity to travel and enjoy many parts of the country. When he was home, he enjoyed gardening and keeping his land.

He exercised his taste buds and intestines with any kind of hot sauce his friends would dare to send.  He was a fan of preparation for the future and self-sustainable living. He was an avid enthusiast of the right to bear arms and some of his finest memories of family would have to include fishing trips. 

He is survived by his brothers George and Tom, his children; Gregory, Lorene, and Michelle

Eight grandchildren; Kendan, Dean, Artana, Michael, Eric, Josie, Aris and Owen, and was

Great Uncle to Maverick.

 He is preceded in death by his mother, Leonore and his father, Gregory Sr.
