  3. Donald Ritenour says:

    I worked with Calvin at what was known then as Eagles Abattoir later named Woodstock Wholesale. I was still in high school; he taught me a lot and I always considered him my friend. I saw him last some time ago at my cousins funeral and we talked as though we had just seen one another the day before. I’m sure he will be sorely missed by many. I pray for the family, which I’ve never met, to have peace knowing that he leaves an emptiness in many hearts.
