    Family –
    So sorry for your loss, may God give you peace and understanding during this difficult time.
    Cal & Faye lived across the street from us on Highpoint & Linda Street for many years. In good weather, they would set on their front porch in the mornings, and wave at us as we went to work. Sometimes in the afternoon, we would go over and visit with them, we learned a lot from Cal about fishing and how to fix boat motors and keep them running.

    I was blessed to have Calvin as my father-inlaw for 15 1/2 yrs . He was a wonderful man. I also got to spend some time with him about a year ago and talk about the old days. I came to visit him with two of his sons John an Jerry. I took some nice pictures of the three of them.
    Rest in Peace Calvin
    Love you Sharon
