Jimmy Calderon

Jimmy Calderon passed away April 27, 2014, surrounded by his family. He was 77.

A memorial service will take place this summer.

Jimmy was born April 9, 1937, to Davis and Grace Calderon in San Fernando, Calif. He was the youngest of four children.

His family helped establish the San Fernando Valley and Lopez Adobe in the 1800s.

He graduated from San Fernando High School and married his high School sweetheart, Judy.

They had two daughters, Jamie and Suzy. He worked for Hostess Cakes for 25 years and then retired to Grass Valley, Calif., in February of 1985, shortly after his first daughter moved to the area, so the entire family could be together again.

Jimmy loved fishing, camping, antiquing and being surrounded by his friends and family.

Jimmy will be missed by all but is now with his beloved wife, Judy.

He is survived by daughters, Jamie Chamberlin and Suzy Crabtree; son-in-law Rick Crabtree; grandchildren Josh Chamberlin, Mandy Chamberlin and Ryan Crabtree; great-grandson Blaik Chamberlin; brother Dave Calderon of Hawaii; and sister Pat Hughes of Ventura.

Jimmy was preceded in death by his wife Judy; and sister Jean Anderson.
