So sorry to hear of his passing, he lived a good life and did more than any ten of us will ever do. He went sliding in with a Magnam PI Stop. We got to spend time with him at the Big W and flew with him in the Jet. Good times. Terry just talked to him about a month ago. Great conversation. We will miss you Cal. RIP. Love and Prayers to your family in this time of need.

Cal was an institution in Huntington Park where we moved to from Ohio in 1954. I got to know him from attending hundreds of the televised shows from the car dealership and ballroom there as well as the ones taped in Hollywood later.
He added so much to my life through these shows and country music. It was never boring on the weekends for the pre-teens and teenagers who got to rub elbows with stars like Glen Campbell (upcoming), Buck Owens, Barbara Mandrell (still in curls), the Maphis family, the Canadian Sweethearts, Cliff Crofford and Billy Mize, Johnny and Jonie Mosby, not to mention the awesome musicians like Glen D. Hardin. I cannot mention all of the talents Cal introduced. He was generous and a man to look up to.
I was delighted to have been at his daughter Barbara's wedding and received a thank you note for the photos I took and sent on to the family.

Fly HIGH Shiny! For those that read My Dog Spot will understand that nickname. Hearing Cal had passed on brought back bitter-sweet memories of my father passing some years back. My family started with Cal when he took over Ralph Williams Ford, the rest is history.
In 75 I started @ Dodge store in South Gate and then Huntington Beach helping with commercials for CW and redlining vehicles. My first car, 65 Mustang that was taken in on trade. My father Ivan Smith ran Fleet in LB, was GM Federal Way (Cheryl (Huwe) Hicks) you probably served my father also, Anchorage then back to LB shortly after my dad left the organization. I know Cal was saddened my father left and gave him sage advice. However they still kept in touch as I did going by the Ford Store seeing people I grew up around.
Fact is CW was a great man, I would rank him close to Henry Ford for ingenuity. Funny moments, first gift I got for Christmas @ Rochelles in LB, a bag of Nuts.. “Nuts to you from Cal and Sue”. Cal, now are flying hirer than you ever dreamed of with a different set of wings. I would also like to give tribute to others that had the privilege to work and learn from Cal. My father Ivan Smith, Richard Johnson, Eddy McAdams, L.D. Crabtree, Phil Love, Jerry Hansink, Larry Mann and many others. For those that have left us, no fighting over the next “up” Those still here with fond memories, tip your hat to the man that changed the car business."
