Brad Calvin of Grandview Heights passed away on April 24, 2022, at the James Cancer Hospital after a tremendous 15-month fight with esophageal cancer. Brad has been a staple of the Grandview community from a young age.
Brad took pride in his work; taking Local Cantina from 2 stores when he first started in 2014 to over 20 stores currently with multiple concepts. He was ambitious and passionate about his work, making friends with all co-workers and colleagues. He always strived to grow as a person and wanted to help others be the best version of themselves. Brad inspired countless individuals and will continue to inspire others.
Brad believed in the words of Dave Matthews Band when they said, "If you give, you begin to live".
