Ken Robertson
Funeral Director
(309) 827-2325

Ken hails from Normal, Illinois and has worked as a funeral director for Calvert Funeral Homes since 2004. His passion for helping people and families in need is the driving force behind his career choice. The consummate family man, Ken and his wife have two children, two dogs (Mickey and Minnie), two parrots (Sophie and Sunny), two saltwater fish (Dora and Goldie), and a rabbit (George). Ken is an avid reader of books about Greek history and mythology and Egyptian history. Though his children’s activities keep him extremely busy, Ken still finds time to play golf and participate in rock climbing, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and camping. If Ken weren’t working for Calvert Funeral Homes, he would apply his love for nature and outdoor activities to owning a horse farm in Kentucky.



Chris Leman

Chris Leman understands and appreciates the comforts of "home". A graduate of Olympia High School who grew up in the small town of Danvers, Chris truly values the opportunity to "serve families and communities he has known his whole life". Chris has two daughters, Payton and Reese, and treasures his time spent with them. An avid hunter and golfer who previously owned and operated Pomme De Terre Golf Club in Morris, Minnesota, Chris concedes that he would be a golf teaching professional if he wasn't working in the funeral industry. Chris' passion for assisting others in need is seen in everything that he does, and as Chris puts it, "making a difficult time for families as smooth as possible" is what drives and encourages him every day. Chris' desire to come "home" was realized in 2014 when he joined the Beck Memorial Home family..



Evan Calvert
Funeral Assistant
(309) 828-2415

Evan represents the third generation of the Calvert name in the funeral industry, following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Larry, and father, Alex. A student at Worsham College of Mortuary Science, Evan’s desire is to further the legacy of his family members and offer the same kind of care and service to the communities in which the Calvert family serves. As Evan readily admits, “I embrace being able to help families in their darkest times in life.” When Evan is not attending to the needs of those aforementioned families or studying, he can be found spending time with his family, friends, and his dogs, Sally and George. Evan loves Bloomington-Normal, especially the wide array of good restaurants, amazing golf courses, and the friendly families that comprise these communities. In his limited spare time, Evan enjoys watching baseball, fishing, and golfing; and he dreams of one day playing on the PGA Tour, where he can play all the top courses in the world and ultimately employ his father as his caddy.



Chad Sparks
Advance Planning Director/Public Relations Director
(309) 827-2325

Chad and his wife Cammie live in Bloomington, Illinois with their 2 children. As the ultimate sports fan, Chad loves to root for his favorite teams, including the Chicago Cubs, Fighting Illini, Indianapolis Colts and the Minnesota Timberwolves. If he wasn’t working at Calvert Funeral Homes, Chad’s dream job would be the general manager of the Chicago Cubs. Since 2007, Calvert Funeral Homes has given Chad the opportunity to represent a premier company and build a partnership with the community through marketing and public events. When not working, you can find Chad enjoying sports, movies, reading, traveling or at Bible study.



Donna L. Schultz
Administrative Assistant
(309) 827-2325

Born and raised in Covell, Illinois, Donna and her husband Dave not only raised their son (Micah) and daughter (Micquel) there, but are still proud to call this community “home” as they continue to live there with their dog Diesel. Donna began working at Beck Memorial Home part-time in 2016 and eventually became a full-time employee less than two years later. A long time member of Covell Community Church and a Special Events Team member and organizer of many of the church’s functions, Donna applied her passion for helping others and event planning to her position at Beck Memorial Home. Donna loves paper crafting and stamping cards, as well as flower gardening; but her true love is spending time with her two grandchildren (Mason and Miah), crafts, and travel.
