We were so saddened to learn of Calvin's passing. We don't get the paper anymore and only learned today that he had died. Rest assured that if we had known we would have attended his visitation and his funeral. Calvin was a wonderful man who will be missed by many. We both have fond memories of him growing up on Carawan Lane. Gloria, our thoughts and prayers are with you and Wilbur. Mike and Nancy Castelloe
