Calvin E. Moir
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Calvin Everett Moir, 83, with his loving wife Marjorie by his side. A resident of Cape Coral, Florida for the past 19 years and Aylmer, Quebec, Canada, Calvin passed away on Friday, December 21, 2018 in Cape Coral. He was born May 5, 1935 in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, to Everett and Frances Moir, now deceased.
Calvin will be deeply missed and forever remembered by his beloved wife of 60 years, Marjorie Moir of Cape Coral and Aylmer Quebec; loving son, Deric (Moira) of Ottawa, Canada; two siblings, Weldon Moir and Florence McCord (David), both of New Brunswick; four grandchildren, Cara, Cole, Bree and Wilder of Ottawa; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins. Calvin was preceded in death by two siblings, Loreta Moir and Donald Moir.
After earning his first of two degrees at the University of New Brunswick, Calvin and Marjorie headed west to Quebec in 1958, where teachers were in high demand and where Cal taught secondary school in Shawville and Hull Quebec. Calvin’s flare for teaching biology, history and geography and making learning fun was his cornerstone, with the arrangement of outdoor camping trips and even a chartered Air Canada flight over the Ottawa Valley for his Geography class, being two examples. Many of Cal’s students became cherished friends in later years.
In addition to teaching, Cal had a bold sense of adventure and loved to travel abroad and research his ancestors; in his ’30’s Calvin took his family to Europe and Miami Florida, where he schooled his son on the road and also attended University. Always a loving father and husband, Cal taught his family the importance of respecting those who sacrificed and lost so much in war and conflict and to learn from our heritage. Calvin’s life-long love for development of residential real estate earned him many great friendships over the years in both Canada and the USA. Cal was also a licensed real estate broker and enjoyed selling commercial real estate. The impact Cal had on those who knew him both personally and professionally is his great legacy.
Calvin attended First United Methodist Church in Cape Coral and the United Church in Aylmer.
