Calvin worked at Anchor Concrete in Brick, NJ as a Pallet Machine Operator.  Calvin was a true Dallas Cowboys fan without a doubt! Calvin was a devoted diligent member of St. Stephens Church.  He shared his love of God with so many people.  His act of love and kindness will never go without mention.

M Society, he was a trusted board member and a part of the mentoring security ministry, F.M. O.
