Kelvin "Cal" Eugene Myers, Sr. was born to Charles and Bertha Myers on March 27, 1959 in Knoxville, Tennessee. He graduated from Austin-East High School in 1977, and he was employed by Omega Plastics for 32 years, where he was a supervisor. Cal was a devoted son, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, nephew, and cousin. At an early age Cal professed his faith in Jesus Christ, and his love for the Lord was evident to everyone he encountered.
Cal's most valued treasure was his family. He never met a stranger and he would do anything to help other people. Cal always encouraged others, gave great advice, and he had a unique gift for making people laugh with his jokes. To know Cal was to love him.
