LINDWALL Calvin Lindwall of Red Deer passed away peacefully at the Red Deer Regional Hospital on Thursday, July 28, 2005 at the age of 78 years. Cal was born in Edmonton 78 years ago and was raised on a farm near Magrath, Alberta by his parents, Roy and Emily. He graduated from S.A.I.T. in 1947 where he studied Aeronautical Engineering.

He was also an active member of the Lions Club and the Royal Order of Masons in Lethbridge. He loved restoring antique cars and Volkswagon Bugs. In 1969, they sold the farm and moved to Red Deer where they built their dream home. Cal and his long time best friend, Hal Nelson started a GM dealership in Ponoka which they managed for ten years. Later, Calvin had a Subaru dealership and managed the RV Service Department at Southside Dodge Chrysler in Red Deer before retiring ten years ago. Cal and Mona were able to do some travelling before and after retirement. They visited Greece, Israel, Australia, Hawaii and Mexico and they spent a few winters in Arizona.
