Calvert E. Erwin Obituary
CALVERT E. ERWIN November 2, 1924-July 4, 2013 Cal passed away peacefully at 88 years old, in the early evening on July 4, 2013. A lifetime resident of Riverside, Cal lived a full life, rich with family. He was a devoted husband to his late wife Joyce, a caring father to his 4 children: Calvert & Colleen Erwin, Gregor (d. 1990) & Jeanette Erwin, Arlene & Don Foor, Sarah & Wally Franz, an affectionate grandfather to: Corinne and Christine, Zachary, Patrick and Michael, Aaron and Katie, and Ashley and Alexa, and enjoyed his 8 great-grandchildren. Cal met and began courting his wife Joyce at Chemawa Jr. High School in 1938. He would often be seen riding his horse to school and showing off to get her attention. He graduated from Poly High School in 1944 and after finally winning her heart, married the love of his life in 1948. Cal worked the family business, Rocky Hill Christmas Tree Farm tending orange groves and Monterey Pine trees. He will always be remembered for his love of the outdoors, working hard with his hands, the way he cared for his wife, Joyce, his sense of humor, positive tenacity and his ability to solve problems. What was most important to him was his faith in Christ, his love for his family and his great friendships. He will be missed. Family will hold a private service.
