The loss of a son is never easy, my sincere condolences to all Burns/Houle family. RIP Calvin!

From: Glenda Greene
Relation: friend

My heart breaks when my beloved sisters lose a child and Cal was gone much too young. I loved his sense of humor and his smile. He was courageous and can stand up for himself. He was a good speaker. He will be missed.

From: Riccardo
Relation: Friend

I grew up with Calvin when I lived around the area. We would play hockey, ride our bikes, play soccer and just have fun. He was a good guy and almost like a big brother at times.

I’m sad to hear about his untimely passing and remember last seeing him at my mom’s house. He came to say hi and see if I was still around.

All the best to his family. My condolences during this difficult time.
