Calvin was a retired sanitation worker, a career that he loved, as well as a devoted KISS fan. Some of his favorite hobbies included fishing, guns, GM cars and trucks, riding his motorcycle, spoiling his granddaughter, and relaxing at home with his fiancée and their cat Spooky. He delighted everyone with his wonderful cooking, warm embraces, and hearty jokes. The hugs and laughter of our Gentle Giant, Calvin, will be dearly missed by his many friends and family.
There will be Celebration of Life services in both Kentucky and Tennessee with dates to be announced at a future time.
