John Clay Calhoun

September 22, 1935 — May 31, 2023

John Clay Calhoun  left this world to meet his Lord on May 31, 2023 following an extended illness. He was born September 22, 1935 to Leila Roundtree and William Calhoun in Creedmoor, TX. 

John grew up in the home of Leila and her husband Truman Roundtree, until he met the love of his life strolling along Congress Avenue in Austin, TX. John Calhoun and Nancy Cooper were married August 31, 1957 and settled in Houston, TX where they welcomed their sons Clay and Clark, and eventually Jay Markunas, into their family. John worked for the Keebler company 25 years before retiring. Since that time, he used his handy skills to meet the needs of others starting a handyman service, and offering appliance repairs before retiring from business management. Not only did his hands work in repairs and construction, the likes of which benefitted his grandchildren with a custom tree house, but his hands also worked to care for aging loved ones. He cared for his in-laws, neighbors, community members, and eventually his beloved Nancy. John was able to share his love for the Lord by self-publishing several books about his faith, and he spent many mornings sharing his faith with others at a local donut shop. 

He was preceded in death by his wife Nancy and son Clay Calhoun. He will be missed by his son Clark Calhoun and wife Laura, grandsons Julian, Nicholas, and Matthew; grandson Austin Calhoun, granddaughter Miranda Burke and husband Landon, great grandchildren Milo and Emily Burke, Daughter-in-law Penny Calhoun, Cousin Jay Markunas and his wife Laura, and daughters Madison, and Samantha. 
The family  would like to thank John’s dear friend, Roy McCartney, who enabled John to regularly visit Nancy as she aged, and ensured that he received regular communion with the Church even when he was no longer physically able to attend.
