Calvin was born July 9, 1955 in Mexia to John Joe Popp and Bonnie Jean (Douglas) Roberts.  He grew up in Mexia, attend Mexia public school and later, moved to El Campo where he graduated high school.  He was a longtime, well-known self-employed welder/contractor.

Calvin was a proud, loving father of two daughters, Tara and Mandy, but there was no love greater than his love for grandson, Raylan.   In PawPaw’s eyes, Raylan could do no wrong and whatever he wanted, he usually got; he truly enjoyed spoiling him more than anything else.  Raylan was his pride and joy.

Calvin, almost always, began his day with a glass of tea, along with his coffee drinking friends, at the Drillin’ Rig.  He occasionally enjoyed playing solitaire and working crossword puzzles.

He was preceded in death by his father, John Popp; mother, Bonnie Roberts; and two brothers, John Gene and Kenneth Wayne Popp.

Calvin is survived by his daughters, Tara Popp of Mexia and Mandy Jo Popp of College Station; grandson, Raylan Marshall Hickman; sisters, Margie Alexander, Nancy Ridge, and Cindy White; brother, Glenn Roberts and wife, Jennifer.
