Calvin Eugene Burney

Calvin Burney, 80, passed away on Sunday, February 26, 2023 at his home.

Graveside services will be at 2:00 PM Friday, March 3, 2023 at Lawnhaven Memorial Gardens. Arrangements are under the direction of Robert Massie Funeral Home.

Mr. Burney was born on April 25, 1942 in Snyder to Charles and Beulah Burney. Calvin left school after the third grade to work in the cotton fields to help provide for his family. In 1962, he and his brother, Alvin started Burney Tree service and grew it into a successful business in the Concho Valley and beyond. They would work from sunup to sunset almost every day until his illness put him in the hospital. While he was in the hospital, Ricky Roberts and Calvin Joe Burney, Jr. made sure the business continued. Calvin never judged anyone and always helped where he could. He loved tinkering with old cars and could always figure out a way to fix any problem before him, except for his smart phone. He was the best dad.

He is preceded in death by a son, Jamie Burney; and siblings, Alvin Burney, John Burney, Myrtle McClelland, Martha McGary, Charlene Burney, and Garland Burney.

Calvin is survived by 8 children, Marla Burney-Clark of Bandera, Russell Burney and wife Teresa of Dove Creek, Lisa Hicks and husband Steve of Azle, Donna Burney, Pamela Daniels, Calvin Joe Burney, Sr., Amanda Burney, and Ashley Burney all of San Angelo; three siblings, Jackie Burney, Jerry Burney, and Dora Neil Watkins, all of San Angelo; 24 grandchildren, including Ashtyn, Rhyder, and Byntlee; 42 great grandchildren; and 12 great-great grandchildren.
