Cal was a loving husband, father, grandfather and a wonderful friend to those he knew and worked with. He is going to be greatly missed by those of us who loved him so dearly. Barbara

Cal was a true Patriot in every sense of the word; who after serving noblely as a skilled airman with over 8000 flight hours aboard trainer, transport, helicopter and the venerable B-52 Bomber, dedicated his post military career to the service, well being and safety of America’s aviators. First as a Civil Servant as Strategic Air Command’s Life Support Acquisition Manager and then as a consultant for the aerospace industry. Recognized for his uncompromising support of his fellow aircrew, he was bestowed the title of “Honorary Chief” by the USAF Aircrew Life Support Chiefs Group. Most recently, May 2011, he was presented a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Life Sciences/Biomedical Engineering Branch of the Airspace Medical Association. The list of his accomplishments is long and impressive…testament to his commitment. But Cal will forever be most remembered for the friendships he formed and nurished; unconditional, unwaivering and true.
