For my favorite Uncle Cal, your loss is enormous in my life.Although there were thousands of miles between us, my LOVE for you was as equal to my Dad.I will miss our calls and you making fun of my accent and your laughter and good nature was like a river calming my heart. I always had a part of "Daddy" still with me in you. We would laugh and chat as fast as we could on the telephone, but I could not EVER get my I LOVE YOU out before hanging up without losing it. And you did the same. You loved Ron and he you, we enjoyed so much your time at our farm and you had a ball with our animals.Our pictures and memories of you and Dottie, we will always treasure.In 1999 I received a tiny carved music box with a message of love inside. At my bedside I open it every Sunday since. Carol(CUZ) I love you, I love you all and will keep you in my prayers.My heart will be with you on Sunday..May God Bless.Cal, I will keep rockin on the porch:)

Cal, was a great boss and a good man. He was my General Foreman when I was a new Foremena and he was a wonderful mentor and always had a sense of humor. We had lunch together this last summer and it was fun to talk about our days in the shop together and how my golf game was going. Gary, sorry to read you have lost your dad....Bob

I worked at Family Pancake Hse. and had the honor of knowing Cal, Dottie, Rod and Terri. They would come in and we had good visits, I will always remember the laughs we had, I had just seen Cal at Freddy's and was so glad to see him. I pray for God to give you all peace at this time.
