Calvin was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He was honest, rock solid, had a genuine center to him and was reliable in every possible way. I never hear an unkind word escape his lips and he had a quiet sense of humor that always helped to take the edge off of things. He was respected by everyone who came into contact with him.

I was truly honor to work with him at the ICC. In recent years he thoughtfully reached out to me to help me to learn more about the famed 442nd for my World War II program with Loyola students. Your children and grandchildren have a model of a man to take heart and inspiration from as they live their lives.
