Our precious Lord came and claimed his own, Calvin Malveaux, who was ready and courageously answered His call on Saturday, January 29, 2022.

Calvin Malveaux, a beloved father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, cousin, godfather, and friend was born on May 8, 1932, to the union of the late Ignace Malveaux and Marie Lovenia Lee Malveaux. He married the love of his life, Alberta Louviere Malveaux and shared a beautiful love story for 62 years until Alberta passed away in 2018.

He was a lifelong resident of St. Martinville, LA who pursued many endeavors and had a broad range of accomplishments in life. He was a member of the local Auxiliary Police, a retired construction worker who often used his skills at home and a faithful servant to Notre Dame Catholic Church where he served as a proud member of the Knights of Peter Claver Council #54, the first Jr. Knights Commander of the Knights of Peter Claver Council #54, Church Trustee, Usher Society, Parish Council, Associate of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament (ASBS) and Cemetery Committee. He enjoyed cooking, gardening, taking pristine care of his lawn and was an avid New Orleans Saints, College Football, and Houston Astros fan.

He leaves to cherish his precious memories a son, Kirk W. Malveaux (Denise); granddaughters, Morgan Malveaux and Krystyn Malveaux; great granddaughter, Riley Malveaux; along with sister-in-law, Melba Malveaux, brother-in-law, Norris Louviere, Sr., and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, godchildren, friends, and church family.

Above all else, faith and family were very important to him, and he made both a priority in his daily life. He was a source of strength and encouragement to many. He was deeply loved by all who knew him and though his absence is distressing, there is solace in knowing that Calvin and Alberta are reunited once again.

He was proceeded in death by his wife, Alberta Louviere Malveaux, his parents, Ignace Malveaux and Marie Lovenia Lee Malveaux; sister, Delores Malveaux Cryer; and brothers, Donald Malveaux and Pervis Malveaux.

Pallbearers will be Darrell Anthony, Willie Lewis, Hilery Louviere, Jr., Titus Pierre, Jeffrey Smith, and Leander Williams, Sr.

Honorary pallbearers will be Norris Louviere, Sr., Athan Olivier Jr., Ernest Malveaux, George Mallery, Byron Cryer, Linkston Cryer II, Daniel Louviere Jr., Willie Johnson Jr., Allen JeanBatiste, and the Knights of Peter Claver Council #54 Membership.

Pellerin Funeral Home of St. Martinville, 112 New Market St., St. Martinville, LA 70582, (337-332-2111) is in charge of arrangements.

I never had the opportunity to meet Mr. Calvin or Mrs. Alberta, but I know them through their son, Kirk, who I worked with at Shell for many, many years. I feel like I know them personally through Kirk, a person of very high integrity, kindness, and with a very high degree of graciousness and appreciation. I often asked Kirk about his parents, as I know they raised him with these same attributes they would have possessed. Kirk often spoke to me of a wonderful childhood - full of love, Christian values, high work ethic and a heart of expectation and appreciation. What a wonderful family. My condolences to the Malveaux family. Absent from the body, present with the Lord. Trust Him at your time of need. His word is true, and He is faithful. Keith Morris
