Calvin Deets is a character encountered in The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury. He's a construction worker living in Woodbury.

He is described as "an older man, an emaciated chain-smoker probably in the late stages of emphysema". He has a face that's described as "an old saddlebag left out in the sun".


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Calvin's life prior to or as the outbreak began. He may have lived in or near Woodbury, Georgia.


Woodbury, Georgia

At some point after the outbreak began, Calvin became a construction worker in Woodbury.

The Road to Woodbury

There he worked with Joshua Hamilton and the other men. After working with Josh for several weeks, the two become good friends. After Josh is killed, he makes a coffin out of a piano case, the only container large enough to hold Josh. It takes Bob and himself hours to dig Josh's grave in the frozen ground. He later attends Josh's funeral along with Lilly Caul, Bob Stookey, Megan Lafferty, Alice Warren, and Dr. Stevens where he removes his Caterpillar cap out of respect.

The Fall of the Governor

Calvin takes part in the prison assault. He survives the first attack and retreats along with the rest of the militia. After Gabe's death, many more soldiers get killed one by one. Calvin is shot through the head and goes down in a burst of blood mist from the back of his skull, his Caterpillar cap flies off as he drops to the ground.


Killed By

Calvin is shot through the head during the second assault on the prison.
