    Sorry to hear about Calvin, he was a wonderful person and friend. Helped me with my motorcycle many times. Never saw him when he wasn’t smiling and always took time to stop and talk. He will be missed greatly. Thoughts and prayers to all his family. Hope there are “Harley’s” in heaven. Calvin will surely be working on them. Rest In Peace my friend.

    I was saddened to hear about the death of Calvin. We became friends in high school. He was such a nice and funny guy. Him and his family did a lot of printing work for my Church. They were always nice and friendly. I will be praying for the family.

    I had the pleasure to work with Calvin over the years as he took care of all our printing needs in Virginia. Although I never met him face to face as we are located in Canada, Calvin was always so helpful, cheerful, and genuinely nice person all the time. My prayers and condolences go out to his family and friends. He will be missed.
