Antonio L. Calvin, II

Antonio Lakese Calvin II was born March 1, 1991 to parents Michelle Calvin Green and Antonio Lakese Calvin Jr. Antonio confessed his faith to God with Reverend Ronald Vail of First Baptist Church Webster Groves, Missouri. In the year of 2005, April Antonio was baptized by Reverend Kenneth E. McKoy of Blackwell Chapel African Methodist Church. Antonio loved his church family and was dutiful member until he moved from the area.

Antonio loved life and family to the fullest. He always stated I have lots of cousins and loved them all. Antonio’s other family outside of relatives were his continuous friends from the Webster-Kirkwood Little Football League and later Mathew Dickey Boys Club. Antonio made friends easily and older adults loved his mannerism and politeness. He always answered yes mam and no sir which was something parents taught years ago. When Antonio disagreed with something he just shook his head in “no-no” manner. Antonio was also a member of the Prince Hall Builders, of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge, Free and accepted masons. It was unfortunate that he was unable to remain a member but he never forgot the teaching he learned.
Antonio was a sweet child and wanted until death to just love life. Going from home to grandmothers and sufficient others parent home eating good home cooked full.
If he could have he would feed all his friends everyday; If he could have he would have moved his mom into a mansion with the best of everything; If he could have he would have given his heart to all the world to have peace and love; If he could have he would have his younger brother Patrick in an expensive private school to better himself; If he could have he would have built a home for he and his dad, just for them to enjoy being together daily. The world love was created with Antonio in mind, because give loved and trusted every one and called all he thought a lot of “His Friend.”
Antonio Lakese Calvin II memories have been left to be enjoyed by his parents Antonio Lakese Calvin Jr. his father and Michelle Calvin-Green his mom.

    Tears are flowing as I write this. I have been praying for you and family since finding out. I am so sorry for your grief, which I couldn’t even understand what you are going through. It hurts me to know you are going through this tragic situation. I liked Antonio, he is a polite and respectful child. I wanted to contact you earlier. I know your world seems to be falling down beside you, keep the faith in the Christ, your father. I am not sure if I can make it on Sat., it hurts to much. Please let me know if I can help you. I have always been your friend and always will be someone who cares for you very much. I pray that the Lord will help you and your family with the grief.

    Love Bob

    Dear Calvin & Green Family. I don’t know any of you but have been praying for Antonio and all of you from the beginning of this tragedy as I had seen it on the news. My heart literally aches for you and his children. I have seen Antonio’s picture and what an adorable handsome young man. I have no words to express my sympathy but know that there are people out there that you don’t even know that are continuing to pray for Antonio, for you and for justice. Antonio has touched the hearts of all who knew him and even the one’s that didn’t know him. I always say “when you find it hardest to pray; pray your hardest.” and know that you did not lose him – you know right where he is. God Bless. With sympathy. Susan

You will never be forgotten and I cherish your last card received from you. I know you are with the Lod our Savior; and I thank you for brining your entire family to Christ. I love you Antonio. Your Grandmother, Pat.

    My Dearest Grandson,
    Oh how my heart aches and my mind still stays on you. You are missed by me daily from the time I awake and even while I sleep, my thoughts are with you. I will never understand the reason why. I just hurts, and hurts. I find myself crying sometime silently so often.
    We all loved you so much. It has been 3 years and the love I have for you has not changed. Thanks for the love you showed me Tonio. Not one person loved me as much as you.
    God Bless Your Soul, Tonio.
    You will always be remembered and because of this constant rememberance, I know you are in Heaven with God. I Love you Grandson.

    My Dearest Grandson, Christmas is almost here again and I remember how much you loved theholiday but alwasy stated, Santa Claus does not come to the gehtto. I always made sure you received something for Christmas and I remember our last Christmas together. How sweet it was. We had Christmas breakfast together and then traveled to your moms house to give Patrick his gifts from Santa. We had such a blessed and joyous day with lots of laughs and comments.
    I love you Antonio and always will remember what a sweet person you were.
    Let our Lord and Savior continue his blessings to you as you did here on earth.
    Merry Christmas,
