Calvin is a native of WNC, growing up in Weaverville and graduating from North Buncombe High School. He has been married to his wife Angie for 38 years. Together, they have three children, two grandsons, and one granddaughter.
For over 25 years, he worked in the supermarket industry as a division director. In 2017, he and his wife Angie felt a pull to return to the mountains in Yancey County, where they have deep familial roots. They purchased Appalachian Java on Main Street in Burnsville in January of 2017. Together with their son Nick, they enjoyed creating a coffee shop, bakery, and cafe that was a fun and trendy place for locals and tourists to gather. It quickly became the hot spot for families, business professionals and teens to gather in the community and was instrumental in helping revitalize Main Street in downtown Burnsville. During their ownership, Appalachian Java was voted “Best of WNC” for five consecutive years. Building friendships with a commitment to excellence in food and drink, while creating a welcoming, friendly atmosphere was the cornerstone of their success. In 2022, Calvin made the decision to sell Appalachian Java and take a year off to travel, spend time with family and attend Real Estate school with his son Nick. Being a part of the local community is important to Calvin. He has served on the board of Second Harvest Food Bank in Charlotte, NC and locally on the board of the Parkway Playhouse and the Yancey Fund.
