In 2002, Calvin and Margaret moved to Alamogordo where they knew it would be their forever home. Calvin enjoyed volleyball and was an avid sports fan. His love was his wife and the life they lived. He delighted in his RV'ing and traveling the country. His serenity was a cup of coffee and watching the sunrise and sunset from his porch.
