Calvin grew up fishing and hunting and loved to talk about his fishing adventures with family and friends. His love for his grandkids was immeasurable and, even if the fish were biting, his family came first. He enjoyed the outdoors as well as fixing and building things. Cancer may have taken his life, but he made sure to spend the last year making more than a lifetime of memories that his loved ones will forever hold dear in their hearts.
