Peta2 Honor Late Hawthorne Heights Guitarist
Described by friends as "kind," "sweet," and "the nicest guy you'd ever meet," Calvert was a passionate defender of animal rights and loyal peta2 supporter. He joined peta2's Street Team years agoŚlong before Hawthorne Heights had reached critical acclaim, and he continued his activism even during his hectic touring schedule.
Calvert and his wife were proud guardians of rescued dogs and cats and staunch supporters of adopting homeless animals from animal shelters and rescue groups. On peta2's site, fans are urged to take the "veg pledge," and peta2 is also urging those who wish to honor Calvert's memory to volunteer at their local animal shelters on December 8. "Casey was always coming up with new ideas for helping animals and was eager to do whatever he could to help," says Dan Shannon, assistant director of youth campaigns. "He educated thousands of young people about cruelty to animals and inspired them to get active. He will truly be missed." - View Casey Calvert's memorial page
