We are deeply saddened by Calvin's passing. He was a wonderful neighbor, always looking out for our kids and even stopped a man from burglarizing our home. We will miss Calvin's wave hello and chatting with him in his garage-there was never a dull conversation. Holding Lory, Amber, Londyn, Marissa, Hassan, and Adrian in our thoughts and prayers. We will miss you Calvin! With Our Deepest Sympathy, The Stream Family-Brian, Linda, Brody & Skylar
