    Lloyd played two roles in my life. He coached me in baseball for a couple of years. But mostly, to me, he was Calvin’s dad. Always seemed happy. Just a good man.

    Cal was a good man and very curtious and thoughtful to everyone he worked with. I truly
    enjoyed having him as a work mate and also as a friend. May he walk with god in heaven.

    I started working with Cal at Chrysler on second shift in 1977. He was a great guy to work with and one of the finest gentleman I’ve ever known.
