He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife of nearly 55 years, Dee and his son Richard.  He earned his pilot license where he enjoyed flying his personal planes.  Calvin was a member of the Confederate Air Force where he was a chief mechanic for a TBM warbird.  In addition to his love for air travel, in his younger years Calvin spent many nights and dollars racing on the Green Valley Raceway in Dallas.  He was an active member of the Red River Car Club.  After retirement, Calvin spent his time at home restoring his 1950 Ford given to him by Carlton Henslee.
