    Calvin is my oldest brother on my father’s side. I come from a blended family. My first memory of him is in my home in Sylva, NC. He was cooking breakfast for Tammy and me. He was frying eggs and gave Tammy the first one. She stabbed her fork into the yolk and it went all over my face. I have never eaten an egg that wasn’t cooked well done since then. I will miss him dearly and Alean, Tammy and Patty I am thinking of you. Calvin was a kind man to me.

  • Ed and Joan Rayfield

    Ed always enjoyed working with Calvin and also enjoyed the cold beers (sometimes warm beers) together after work. We both enjoyed the armloads of fresh veggies from his garden. Such a kind and giving man will always be remembered fondly.

  • Andrew D Cloer

    Alean, I have you and all the family in my prayers, I am so sorry for all of you, it hurts to know that Calvin is gone, we grew up together, in fact he stayed with us for awhile. Hebrews 9:27 says “It is appointed unto man once to die”, all of us have to meet that day. The important is to be ready when it comes. Even though I would like to be there with you all, I can’t but please know this I Love You and will be there in spirit and thoughts

    Although it was many moons ago, I can remember Calvin when I was very young and the many talents he had. Was such an amazing man. Family, your in my prayers. Much love across the miles.

    Dear Cousins Alean, Tammy, Patty and all of the Cloer, Ross, Wroolie clan,

    We are so very sorry to hear of Calvin’s passing. He will be remembered for his personal warmth, funny stories, and great kindnesses — especially to children or someone in need. Our sympathies are with you and we share your grief.

    I loved how Calvin could always sneak a punch line in at the end of a funny story — very sly, and the timing always resulted in a loud round of laughter. He will be so very missed.

    Sending lots of love and hugs to you you all.

    Doug, Jeanette, Grace and Richie Weaver
