Marilyn, Amy, and Justin we are deeply saddened by Calvin’s passing. Rare is it to meet someone who remains as sincere and genuine from the day you meet him and then to remain so even decades later. Calvin was a pure spirit and there are countless others whom I am certain would agree. Calvin was always a gentleman, this and his devotion to his family helped him stand out as an exceptional person.

Condolences to all the Piercey families . Hi i got the pleasure to meet Calvin as he trained me for the TlLE manager role for the walmart store in Corner Brook .Was no trouble to tell how respected he was by his co workers in the stores he worked in . I have so many memories of many conversations we had over the years . He was always there to help in any way he could . Always liked a good laugh and it was certainly infectious You will be missed my friend .

There are very few words that can console broken hearts when a loving and devoted husband and father passes much too early in life. We are all grieving with the Piercey family today. It is never easy to say goodbye to those we love and cherish the most in this life. The legacy of Calvin will live on in the spirit of his children, Justin and Amy and in his grandchildren, Cole present and grandchildren yet to arrive but who will hear the stories, the lore of Calvin. It is a sad time for all of us but there is great strength in celebrating his life through the memories we have of days and moments in life shared with Calvin. My condolences to all of the extended Piercey family. Rest In Peace Calvin.

I’m sorry for your loss, Calvin was my boss when I worked at Walmart in the early 90’s and he was probably the best manager I’ve ever had. He was very caring about his employees, prayers and condolence for his family.

We send our condolences to all the Piercey Families. Calvin’s Dad was my teacher for three years. I am ever grateful. That time period suggests Calvin spent three years in my hometown. Sometimes we may only share moments but we cherish them. Blessings
