Calvin never had a driver's license. For years he walked from his home, then down East Howard Street, to the electric company office (the small building at the base of the dock leading to the Ocracoke Watermen's Exhibit) where he worked.
Calvin loved to laugh, sing and act. He performed in numerous local productions, and was a founding member of the Sea Flats, an island barbershop quartet.
In recent years, because of declining health, Calvin seldom left his home. He died at home on April 17. Family and friends gathered at the Methodist Church on Saturday to celebrate his life. Another link to the Ocracoke before paved roads and ferries has been broken.
