Whenever I think of Cal a smile will come to my lips and a blessing to my heart. He was like a father figure to me with all of those years at Fracmaster. I will always remember the last lunch I had with him and the boys at Wellingtons. My deepest sympathies to you Rosemarie and your family.

What a blessing Cal was to all of us who knew him & even those he didn't. Cal was so honest, ethical, kind & genuine, he lit up a room with his twinkling eyes and his wonderful smile. Cal was so special for so many many reasons but especially for his heart, he gave so much & expected nothing in return, he was so special to our family & will never be forgotten. With all our love, we will always miss you Cal
