Calvin Kaupp

September 14, 2018 — December 8, 2018

Calvin James Kaupp, infant son of Danny and Courtney Kaupp, passed away Saturday morning, Dec. 8 at his home in Gridley. Calvin was born with Down's Syndrome and spent the first three weeks of his life in the hospital. His family would like to express their gratitude to all the wonderful doctors and nurses at Advocate Bromenn's Neonatal Unit who worked so hard to love and care for Calvin. Our special thanks to Dr. John Bandy, Calvin's pediatrician and his staff for their loving care. Although Calvin's life was short, he made a huge impact on people, and we are so grateful God gave him to us.

Calvin was born September 14, 2018 to Danny and Courtney Kaupp. His big brother is Cooper, 2 1/2, at home in Gridley. His maternal grandparents are Larry and Sherry Sharp of Normal and paternal grandparents are Tim and Betty Kaupp of Gridley. Calvin is also survived by his aunts: Lindsey (Aaron) Hand, Elise (Paul) Grimm and Lindsay (Burnett) Martin. Also surviving are uncles T.J. (Sarah) Kaupp and Bryan Sharp. His cousins are Judah, Elijah, Shiloh, Silas Grimm and California Kaupp. Calvin was also dearly loved by a host of extended family members. We enjoyed every minute with Calvin and look forward to the time when we will see him again.
