Calvert, D.G. (Jerry)

D.G. (Jerry) Calvert passed away suddenly on Sunday, October 6, 2019.  He has now gone home to be with the Lord.  He was born on September 8, 1934 to Dave and Freda Calvert in Tulsa, OK.  He is preceded in death by his parents and sister.

This beloved husband, dad, gramps and uncle, was a mentor and friend of many.  Known throughout the world for his knowledge and experience in his chosen field, he was called upon by many to consult and to give counsel.  His industry has lost a great asset and a great friend.

Dear Bonnie and Family;

I wish I could be there, but I am helping take care of my new great granddaughter. I have known Jerry for many years through our association in the cementing of oil wells and API meetings. As many others are saying, he was a great source of information and taught many about cementing and oil wells. He had a great memory about his experiences and his line of work. Enjoyed visiting with him during visits with us at Halliburton and the one visit I made to the Mobil lab. He was the go-to person at API meetings on meeting protocol and anything to do with cementing a well. I am honored to have known him and have him as a friend/mentor.

I always looked forward to discussing the oil and gas industry,which he loved, with him. He was so knowledgeable and helped so many with his insights. I will forever remember his laugh. He will be missed by many.
