Obituary

Calvin George Titera, 67, died peacefully with his wife, Irene, by his side shortly after Christmas Day, on December 26, 2018. PUBLIC VISITATION: 9 to 10:15 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Arlington, Texas, with the funeral beginning at 11 a.m.
Additional visitation: Friday, January 4, 2018 at Skyvue Funeral Home. 6-8 pm.

All expressions of affection are appreciated. Cal would love contributions to the missionary fund to help others serve on a mission: www.ldsphilanthropies.com. He would also love to help families with children suffering from cancer, so donations to St. Jude hospital are also welcome www.stjude.com

Calvin was born on December 4, 1951 in Milwaukee, Wisconson to Violet Evelyn Stolfus and Clarence George Titera and was the oldest of their three sons. He married Irene Victoria Campbell in Manti, Utah, and they are the parents of five sons: Benjamin, Jamison, Christian, Adrian and Marcus, and nine wonderful grandchildren.
Calvin had a high degree of dedication to the pursuit of excellence and a strong determination to serve others tirelessly. His leadership style inspired cooperation and greater achievements. He spent countless hours quietly ministering and helping others in many ways, but he always believed that his most important mission was as a husband and father. He was a husband beyond compare, an exceptional father, and a loving grandfather. The death of three of his sons increased his awareness of suffering, and his compassion for others. He had a friendly, forgiving nature and a welcoming smile that he shared freely.
He enjoyed hiking, climbing, camping and outdoor sports, and he loved basketball. He played early mornings at gyms and in church leagues for decades longer than most.
Boy Scouts of America had a great influence on young Calvin, and he became an Eagle Scout. As an adult he was awarded the prestigious Silver Beaver for his service in scouting.
Cal was an avid student and loved learning, earning top honors in high school and scholarships to the University of Washington. He held masters degrees in Aeronautics and in Business Administration. His hunger for learning stayed with him lifelong so he studied a great deal and attended seminars often.
As an excellent speaker he inspired groups and congregations at work and in church. His stories and thoughts affected listeners deeply. He told others often of his great desire to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and be a good and faithful servant. His actions matched his words.
Calvin served in many capacities in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including as a full-time missionary, a Bishop, Young Men’s President, Scout leader, High Counselor, Sunday School teacher and High Priest Group Leader.
In his career he worked for Boeing, Singer-Link, Link, Hughes, Raytheon, and L-3. For years he has enjoyed his work and strong friendships with associates at L-3 Technologies.
Cal is survived by his wife Irene, son Jamie (Molly) Titera his son, Adrian Titera and his daughter-in-law Anne (Steve) Stubben. Surviving grandchildren include David, Kate, Mary, Christian, Sarah, Rita, Rockwell, Thomas, and Leo. Also surviving are two brothers, Rick (Jennifer) and Bill (Dorothy)Titera, step-siblings Joan (Cardon) Willis and Ken (Linda) Carlston and many nieces and nephews, including Lizzie Gallardo who he regarded as a daughter. Also surviving is Ethan Goddard who he dubbed affectionately as a son shortly before his passing.
Cal was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence George (Mary) Titera and V. Evelyn (Gus) Carlston and three sons, Benjamin, Christian and Marcus.

We will be at the funeral today. I'll never forget all of Cal's help with Irene's decorating and art expertise in both of our homes in Mansfield! How did he go through our attic & rigup 'Rebecca' to create the pefect Mediterranean fountain in our art niche that would come on with a flip of a switch!?? I oved his willingness to always be there for anyone whom needed his help, especially his sweet, beautiful Irene. We all will miss Cal very, very much. God bless Irene and her family and friends.
