I met Cal after he and Amy married. I was her dentist (and her parents’ and grandparents’ dentist) and so Cal became a patient, too. I remember when Jonathan and Andrew were born and became my patients at an early age. Such a sweet and delightful family!
Cal had so many interests and a joyful curiosity about many things. I love weather events and when I found out he was a storm spotter I so intrigued. Cal was the only ham radio operator I’ve ever known and that fits so well with his out-going personality and the ease in which he could meet and visit with anyone.
I was sorry when they moved from Tuscaloosa but his mother-in-law Glenda gave me periodic reports on how they were doing and she would bring the boys in for check-ups when they were visiting her in Tuscaloosa.
Any, Jonathan and Andrew,
I am so so sorry that Cal has passed away.
He was a remarkable person who was taken too soon. My heart goes out to you and I will be lifting you up in prayer during this difficult time.
