Calvin Dennis Biddix, age 67 of Kelso, Washington, went home to be with his Savior Saturday, February 13th, 2021. A native of Yancey County, he was the son of the late Dayton and Evelyn Gouge Biddix. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Betty Lou Biddix Miller.
Calvin grew up the second oldest of ten children in the South Toe Community. He and his young family moved to the Pacific Northwest in the late 1970’s, where he worked for several logging and construction companies over the years. He enjoyed spending time in the woods camping, hunting and fishing with his sons. One could always find Calvin sitting around a campfire telling a good story. He was a man of integrity, a faithful husband and a man of deep faith who had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Calvin loved and served God and often played guitar and sang in his church.
