Calvin Scott Stringfield
August 13, 1960 - September 8, 2013
Cal awoke every morning eager to take on the challenges of the day. With a type "A" personality, he faced these challenges with the spirit of a warrior. Cal was fearless, with a gentle kindness that was cherished by those fortunate enough to know him and will be greatly missed. His strength always made those in his presence feel safe and protected.
Angels came September 8th, 2013 to take Calvin Scott Stringfield, 53, to our heavenly father. He died at his home in Columbus, Montana. Cal was born on August 13th, 1960 to Hugh and Dorothy Stringfield in Eugene, Oregon, the second of three sons. He was raised and educated invarious cities throughout the Pacific Northwest and Colorado.
Starting in his youth, Cal embraced physical challenges, running his first marathon at age 11. Throughout high school, Cal was involved in cross country, football and baseball. He attended University of Idaho, University of Nevada (Reno), and graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Communications. Cal chose to work in sales for the bulk of his career, most recently in the pharmaceutical field. Cal recently switched gears for a more physically demanding career in the construction field and loved and embraced the new challenge.
Cal's devotion to excellence was second to none and was born early in his life from sun up to sun down, working the agricultural fields in Idaho. He loved being outdoors which grew into a lifelong passion. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, biking, skiing, whitewater rafting and many other outdoor activities to the extreme. He loved caring for and riding his horses through the beautiful Montana wilderness. Cal's most excellent accomplishment was having a beautiful daughter.
