“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith……..
II Timothy 4:7
On Sunday, July 4th, 2021, Calvin Legette, Sr. was given a special assignment, he answered, “Lord I’m Ready” and was granted his wings. Calvin Legette Sr., better known as “C Money” was born October 26, 1961 to the late Louise Legette and the late Lonnie Legette, Jr. He was the grandson of the late Nettie Mae and Henry Spry Sr.
Calvin attended Marion County Schools and was a graduate of Marion High School. He was employed by the City of Marion, where he retired after 28 years of faithful service. At an early age, Calvin gave his life to Christ. As years went by he realized he needed to get closer to Christ, so he rededicated his life to Christ, his Lord and Savior. His favorite saying was “I can do all things thru Christ who strengthens me, he can work miracles, I know, cause he done it for me”. He who finds a wife, finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord. And that wife was Joyce Eaddy, or as he would say “the love of his life”.
