When he was young, Calvin was a fantastic hockey player with a promising career. He even played for the Soo Greyhounds. Until a car accident when he was 18, left him unable to skate the same way but his love for the sport carried on. From there he spent three years sailing but found out that he was sea sick. So, he turned to construction. Working as a bulldozer operator for both Hydro and the Trans Canada pipeline. He then started his own construction business in Providence Bay in 1970. He was just shy of his 50 year anniversary and he was so proud of this accomplishment. He had the post office in Providence Bay for 27 years. He was an avid hunter and loved to hunt moose and deer. He was also a member of the International Union of Operating Engineers. Calvin will be missed by his family, friends, many community members, colleagues and employees
Family and friends will gather at Island Funeral Home on Friday, November 15, 2019 from 11AM until 1PM
with a celebration of life at 1PM.

Joan, Rob and family - our thoughts and prayers are with you for comfort and strength in the days ahead. We will miss Calvin. He's been a friend for many years. It was difficult to see him struggle through many months of sickness and treatments. You've worked hard and sacrificed to keep him doing what he wanted to do. May this bring you comfort.
