February 8, 1933 - February 17, 2023


Having just made it to 90, Calvin (Cal) passed peacefully with family by his side.


Cal will be dearly missed by his sons, Brian (Melanie) and David (Eileen), and his three cherished grandsons, Jeffrey, William, and Timothy. Cal was predeceased by his wife, Dianne; son, Gordon; and grandson, Evan.


Dad was a kind man, comfortable in his own company and always generously offered his time and experience to family and friends. If he had to sit then it would be to read or play cards.


Cal was always busy. He worked at Revenue Canada Taxation for over 30 years, retired at 55, and started his own accounting practice where he had fun helping his clients, especially with their tax problems “from the other side”. Dad also enjoyed many hobbies and helping his family with all sorts of projects. He was always ready to go - if something had to be done, it needed to be done now and it needed to be done right. He enjoyed woodworking, for example, and could point out every flaw in his projects that none of us could see.


Our family is grateful for and thanks several individuals at Maples Personal Care Home, especially on Pine Unit, who cared for and developed a relationship with our Dad.


Cal did not want a service. Interment and a small family gathering will be held in Winnipeg at a later date.


In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a good cause of your choice.
