He was also preceded in death by his parents, Ernie and Kate Armer and his in-laws, Clifford and Darlene Johnson

Calvin was a man who loved life. He grabbed it with both hands and ploughed through laughing all the way. His proudest accomplishment was his marriage to Patsy, the love of his life and the home that they made together for their children. The home they made was fun, safe and full of love. Calvin was a farmer. He and Patsy milked cows for many years and raised chickens. Later they switched to raising beef cattle. He loved working on his farm, driving his tractors and working all day long caring for his animals. Calvin always made time to play though. He loved hunting, fishing, sports and riding horses. On summer days he would play with his girls in the yard turning cartwheels, walking on his hands, or playing games after the cows were milked. He would also take the entire family to the river to swim and play after a full day of hauling hay. In winter he would sit with all the girls in his house and put together jigsaw puzzles or quilt.

He was so proud of his grandchildren and doted on each one. He had a special bond with each, and he loved them very much. He was especially proud of his great-grandchildren and just recently he could be heard bragging that he has 5 great-grandchildren and one on the way.

His family and farm were his happiness and he enjoyed every day. Calvin showed those around him what it was to truly love living. His lust for life is a tribute to his inner peace and happiness.
