Calvin moved to Gander as a young man to help build the Newfoundland Airport, stayed on to build his home and raise his family in the new town of Gander. He worked at Shell & EPA as a valued and conscientious employee. He loved the outdoors & a good boil up. He will be loved and missed, always for his gentle demeanor and dry wit. The family would like to thank Cavelle Winsor for her kind & caring ways and the staff at the James Paton Memorial Health Care Centre for their guidance during his final hours.
