Calvin received his formal education through the Gates County School System. He began his working career with his uncles, in The Riddick Brothers Logging Company. He later started working with George P. Gatling Logging Company of Sunbury, NC, where he remained until his health failed him.

Calvin was an avid outdoor sportsman. He was a member of the Roduco Hunting Club. Juke enjoyed fishing, hunting, watching western movies, wrestling and of course cheering on his beloved Dallas Cowboys. He would say, “How Bout Dem Boyz?” He was a gentle quite soul, however, his sharp wit and take NO junk, tell it like is, personality will be greatly missed.
