Obituary

Calvin Ray Warren, 87 of Wellston passed away of cancer Saturday, March 28, at the Stillwater hospital.

A graveside funeral service was held Monday, April 7, 2020 at the Carney Cemetery. Please see the "Photos and Videos" tab to view a recording of the service.

Calvin was born December 31, 1932 in Kinta, Oklahoma. He was raised by his grandmother Dora Wehunt and grandfather Will Warren along side of his aunts and uncles. They would run wild through Southeast Oklahoma, hunting and fishing and harvesting for friends and family. He had many friends at the Edmond Chapel School where he went through the 8th grade.

Calvin joined the Army and was sent to Germany right as the Korean Conflict was ending. When he finished his time with the Army he completed his education at the OSU Technical School in Okmulgee, where he became a skilled upholstery specialist. After marrying and having 2 lovely daughters, Debbie and Wanda, Calvin moved to Stillwater and began working at OSU in Student Services Maintenance in 1956. He later transferred to the upholstery department at OSU where he worked until retirement around 1988.

Calvin married Melba Faye
Toles in 1972 and they made their home in Stillwater until they retired and moved to Melba’s family farm outside Carney, OK. In retirement, Calvin and Melba raised cattle (and fixed a lot of fence!) They enjoyed traveling back to Southeast Oklahoma and all across the country. An avid hunter & fisherman, he loved teaching young people all about the outdoors.

Calvin always worked hard and was a man of many skills, among which included taxidermy, bee keeping and home maintenance. He was always happy to hire young students to help them grow in confidence and skill. He was a great teacher, explaining how to do complicated things in a simple and patient way. He was a kind and gentle man with a great sense of humor and a heart that made him a true Good Samaritan. A close friend was quoted saying ‘there is no one in the world more trustworthy than Calvin’.

Calvin was preceded in death by his grandparents Will Warren & Dora Wehunt, his parents, Hazel & General Cooper, sisters Lola Mae Warren & Elsie Benton, Brothers Dallas Cooper, Adam Cooper, & Jim Cooper, and son in law Thomas Ikenouye.

He is survived by wife Melba of the home, daughters Debbie Marr and Wanda Ikenouye, Brother John Cooper, sisters Dora Mae Dennis and Loretta Taylor, brother & sister in laws Roy & Loretta Toles, and Norma Toles, grandchildren, Jesse Warren, LaTonya Warren, Angela Warren, Alexander Marr, Jennifer Walters, Andrew Ikenouye, Calvin Ikenouye, and many great grandchildren.

Calvin will be deeply missed and forever loved by his family and friends.

How do I say something about my Uncle Calvin that will do justice to the memories I have of him? Uncle Calvin was the kindest most caring man I have ever known. When I was 14 years old he loaned me his deer rifle so I could go hunting, even though it meant he couldn't go himself. Any time I needed a little extra cash, he had work I could do to earn it. He always had an ear to hear my problems and often great advice when it was needed. All I can say now is the world doesn't seem right without him in it. Everyone that knew Calvin will miss him dearly. I have been blessed to call him my Uncle Calvin.

When I was 18, I moved out on my own to an apartment, that just happened to be around the corner from my Aunt and Uncle. There were days I would get a call from my Dad before I could get inside, telling me that " Calvin said you pulled into the driveway too fast!" It didn't bother me because I knew I was being looked after. I felt loved and safe. When I met the man I was to eventually marry, Calvin got him a job at student service maintenance at OSU, so he could stay in town for the summer and I always suspected, to see if he was a good guy....Calvin approved. After we were married, he hired Jim to help fix up the house at the farm. I always appreciated that. It helped my new husband bond with my family. He loves Calvin too. When we needed a babysitter for our first born, Calvin volunteered, and did a wonderful job taking care of our 1 month old daughter. Even though he had to clean up her spit up, he never complained. He rarely complained. He was a kind, thoughtful, gracious man that I, sorry, WE will miss. He was so patient and kind with my kids and such an incredible teacher. I will forever remember him that way.
