When I was a child, Cal always waved with a big smile, as a teen Cal always smiled and waved, all my life Cal had a warm smile and waved, I am sure God is smiling and waving as he welcomes Calvin to his side. Pine Creek will miss him.

I worked with Cal at NorthStar Print in Norway for some years prior to his retirement. He was well liked by his fellow workers. I enjoyed his company, a soft-spoken man. Honest and trustworthy are some attributes that I immediately think of when I remember Cal. Not to mention that he was just plain fun to talk with. He will be greatly missed.
