Let the memory of Calvin Damian be with us forever

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Calvin Damian Salter who was born on April 21, 1969 and passed away on September 24, 2010. We will remember him forever.  

All visitors to this memorial... PLEASE leave a tribute to Calvin!

Thank you to everyone that attended Calvin's memorials, and for all of the prayers and tributes and stories left by everyone here on his memorial website.

To those that knew him best....  I think Calvin would tell us to not only celebrate his life and cherish his memory, but also to go on everyday remembering his words... "It is what it is..." and not live in sorrow, but live everyday with his memory by our sides, and strive to live our own lives to the fullest.

Calvin was a beloved Son, Brother, Uncle, & friend to many.  Loved by everyone that knew him.  If you spent one minute with Calvin, you had to laugh at some point.  Those unforgetable looks, funny phrases, quirky ways...  He was truly one of a kind, and will be missed so so much. 

We love you Calvin!  Rest in Peace....


Your Family....   Renee (known to Calvin as "Sis"), Randy "Bubba" (Brother- In-Law), Mikayla & Brianna (Special Nieces), Dakota "Lil Stewie" (Special Nephew), Greg (known to Calvin as "Pops"), Kevin, Dan, Uncle Marty, Shaun & Seth (Special Newphews), Katie (Special Niece), Pam & Rob, and the rest of us that loved you so dearly and will miss you more than words can EVER say.

God Please be with Calvin's Family and Friends in this time of grief & sorrow.  Hold Calvin close to your heart everyday, and please DRIVE SLOW...  Don't rush through life, and love your family and friends with all of your heart!  Cherish each and every day like it could be your last.  God only know's our destiny....  Choose your path carefully, and live every day to it's fullest!

 If any of his family and friends have pictures or stories of them and Calvin, we will be upgrading this memorial to be able to share unlimited pictures, video's, music, and stories.  Please....  we would love to see any and all pictues anyone has to share!  Calvin was so dear and special to us all... what better way to celebrate his life than to share all of our memories and good times with each other through his memorial website.

"Hey Calvin,

   Its Brianna your niece i know i haven't been on in a while but i thought about you this morning and thought i might need to come and say hi. So here it is i know i didn't really know you that well we only hung out a little bit before you passed away and we all miss you very much. You will forever be in my heart and i know we didn't share DNA but you are my family anyway. I guess what I'm trying to say is even though we didn't have much time together ,the time that we had was amazing. You were always smiling and happy and the fishing trip we took before i went home was awesome i remember when the guy down from us caught a sting ray and on the other side of us they caught a shark that was a fun day and the day we left we all said our goodbyes and headed back home i just wish we could see your smiling face one more time and have you in our lives again. I miss my fish in buddy i need you back. The day momma told me that you passed i might not have shown that i was sad but on the inside i was dying. But  thats just how i am i wait till I'm behind closed doors and then cry. I miss you so much just wish that that would have never happened. I know papaw misses you very much and so do we. So ill come back tomorrow and talk some more. I hope i see you in heaven. Talk to you tomorrow Love you Calvin. Your the best uncle in the world
I LOVE YOU !!!! <3 <3
