Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush. I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;I am not there. I did not die.
On April 29, 1981 in Webster, Texas, a handsome baby boy was born to the union of Lloyd Caldwell, Sr. and Jeanette Bradley Caldwell. They named their blessing, Bryan Caldwell.
Bryan attended the public schools of Dickinson,Texas where he received his formal education. He was a 1999 graduate of Dickinson High School; and furthered his education attending Tulsa University and Ashford University where he studied Information Systems.
Bryan accepted Christ at an early age and united with Inner Touch Ministries in Dickinson under the leadership of his father, Pastor Lloyd Caldwell, Sr.
Bryan was employed with Clear Creek Independent School District as a paraprofessional at Clear Creek High School, working until his health failed. He united in marriage to the love of his life Kristine on September 19, 2016.
Bryan, also known as Amon-Ra El, was a free spirit, who knew God and loved the simple things in life. Even in the midst of his illness, he was still an encourager and didn’t complain. The beauty of a sunset, the dew of the morning, the smile on a loved ones face was more meaningful to him than silver or gold. He had a giving heart, a special love for his family and friends and accepted the things he could not change.
August 2, 2020, God gave Bryan eternal rest with his loved ones by his side. He is preceded in death by his father, Pastor Lloyd Caldwell, Sr. and other family members.
Left to celebrate his legacy are his devoted wife, Kristine Caldwell of 4 years; his mother, Jeanette Caldwell; siblings, Lloyd Caldwell Jr, (Katherine Caldwell) and Shannon Caldwell. He is also survived by a ton of in-laws, loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who will truly miss him.
To celebrate his life, the family will host a Memorial Parade on Saturday, August 8, 2020 at 11:00 AM beginning at the parking lot by Big Al Stop Sign on Baker Dr. and conclude at the family home where Bryan grew up. Please see additional information concerning the parade route below.
