    What a special man Calvin was. As his neighbor for many, many years Bettie Anne and I both saw first hand his dedication to his family, friends, neighbors and the community in general. Calvin thought first of others, rarely of himself. Creedmoor has lost a very special part of its past…the part that showed the rest of us the type of person we should all be. Rest In Peace Calvin. Say hey to Bobbit, Anne, Emmett, Patsy and of course Ruby.

    Calvin will be missed dearly, but he or his infectious smile will never be forgotten. As a neighbor of Calvin’s for the past eight years, it was always a pleasure stepping outside to have a chat in the middle of his walks. So much has happened in eight years, his house burnt, the loss of Ruby’s dog and then the loss of his after a very scary turn of events. The year Calvin was living a few blocks over as his home was being rebuilt, this street missed its pulse. The day finally came for Calvin to move back in, it seemed as our little street had its own little slice of heaven back. This last year has been tough, just not having that daily interaction (I personally looked for), and now. I write this knowing this wonderful man is sitting beside his Father in heaven, watching over each and everyone of us as he has always done. God bless you Calvin, we love you and will see you again. I know you will still have that smile we know.

    Mr.Haskins was a wonderful man I had the honor of being one of his many caretakers . He was an awesome man every time you saw him and Tammy Bobbitt his long time care giver of 5 years he was always smiling they often visited me in my home for us to sit on patio and eat lunch We all sincerely loved him and he knows he was in great hands with the team of people who worked with him .You could always expect him when he stepped out he was neat as a pin because Annie Lyons made sure of that Me and him had a special bond because his face would light up when he saw me .He will be greatly missed and it should be a great home going for him because he was well loved and cared for..Sip peace my dear friend from your entire team of caregivers.

    Calvin married my sister, Ruby, when I was fifteen and has been like a brother to me. My family and I were so blessed over the years to have him in our lives especially the last eight years when we moved back home from Illinois. Calvin was a second father to my daughters and grandfather to my grandchildren. We will greatly miss his ready smile, quick wit and constant whistling. A special thank you to his loyal caregivers! You are so appreciated and gave Calvin the best of care. Rest in peace, Calvin, you were so loved by all those whose lives you touched!
