Calvin was united in marriage to Marilyn Hohn on Aug. 6, 1971, at St. Wilfrid Catholic Church in Woonsocket. They made their home in Wessington Springs. Calvin enjoyed a career driving semi truck and drove over 28 years with no reportable accidents. He worked for Caffee Trucking and Bob Winter Trucking hauling cattle, and he hauled grain for Stan’s Feed and Grain. Currently, he worked at J&M Specialties Parts Store.

Some knew Calvin as “Fishy” or “CJ.” He was an interesting person with a twinkle in his eye. Calvin had a variety of interests that included fishing, playing cards, gardening and geology. He always enjoyed a challenge and could fix most anything electrical or mechanical. Some of his favorite times were spent with his granddaughters, Friday night drives for dinner with Marilyn and time spent with his coffee/card group.

Survivors include his devoted wife of 48 years, Marilyn, of Wessington Springs; son, Jody (Susanne) Hinrichs of Brainerd, Minn.; three granddaughters; four brothers, Tom (Laurel) Hinrichs, Allen (Carmen) Hinrichs, David Hinrichs and Mike Hinrichs; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
