Calvin Rains

October 10, 1934 - May 31, 2018

Calvin Rains Calvin Homer Rains, 83, joined his Heavenly Father on May 31, 2018, after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer's.
He was the firstborn son to Homer and Clara Mae on Oct. 10, 1934, in Wylie, Texas.
Calvin graduated from Wylie High School and then went on to graduate from Decatur Baptist College (now Dallas Baptist College) at 22. He was called to the Southern Baptist Ministry and went on to pastor numerous churches in Phoenix, Ariz., and Texas. In addition, Calvin was an entrepreneur who founded several businesses and was known by all for his easy going and congenial manner as he never met a stranger. Calvin's greatest love was when he was helping other people. From the various churches he attended and assisted in any way needed, his volunteer work with Meal on Wheels, to his heavy involvement in Ministry for the Blind, Calvin was always there to be their guiding eyes. He loved being at family events with his many grandkids and great grandkids, then in later years had a penchant for being outside enjoying nature.
Calvin is survived by his brother, Billy Rains; son David Rains (wife Billie); daughter Debra Zukonik (husband Patrick); and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He has been reunited with his father and mother, brother Kenneth Rains, and sisters Clara Riley and Wanda Rains. He now joyously awaits the remainder of his loved ones he left behind here on Earth.
A celebration of Calvin's life will be held 4 p.m., Thursday, June 14, at Reflections at Rest Haven Funeral Home - Rockwall location.
As an alternative to flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the Alzheimer's Association at www.alz.og to help combat this horrible disease.
