The funeral Mass for Cleve Calderon, who died December 7, was held December 12, Santa Rosa RC Church, Arima. The following is a tribute from his family which has been edited for length.
Cleve Calderon was the only child born to Phyllis Calderon and Urban Wong at their home on De Gannes Street, Arima. He then moved to San Juan where he spent his adolescent years.
At the tender age of eleven he began working at Rhyner’s Record Shop with his uncle Hilton who was his father figure and mentor. This initial experience motivated him to pursue an Electronics, Circuits and System programme for which he travelled to New York.
