He asked everyone to choose a charity of their liking and either give money or volunteer time to that organization. At the Christmas party everyone would be able to share who they chose and a little bit about that charity. In lieu of flowers we suggest you give to a charity of your choice in his memory.

Memories Timeline


  1. To the family of Calvin – I am so very sorry for the loss of this amazing young man.
    Calvin was a close friend of my son, Michael Peterson, who passed away in 2017. Throughout the years, especially their high school years I had an opportunity to get to know Calvin. But the last 2 years, I cannot tell you how much comfort he gave to me after the loss of my son. Calvin and 2 other boys came down to Mantador and sat in the Cemetery to be with Michael on the 4th of July because that was Michael’s favorite day of the year that he enjoyed spending with his friends. They joined me and my family to light off fireworks in the evening. My family and I will greatly miss his 4th of July Visits. I hope it gives you comfort to know that Calvin will be Greeted in Heaven by his friend. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers for strength and comfort to get through this – and you will! And over time the memories will bring tears and laughter. Calvin will be remembered by many!!
    Rest in Peace Calvin!

  2. So very glad we were able to see Calvin during our visit to Fargo in October. Praying for family and friends. Rest In Peace Calvin.

  3. Dear Kim,
    I want to wish you my condolence over the death of Calvin.
    I’m thinking that you may be the same person who took some piano lessons during the year of 2006.
    Anyway I wish God’s comfort and peace to you and your family,
    With sympathy,
    Sister Bernadette Trecker

  4. Kim – I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Calvin from Centennial and he and Jaden playing soccer together. I pray the many memories you have will ease your pain. Prayers for healing are coming your way.

  5. Kim – Dan – I cant put into words how sorry I am for the passing of Calvin. He was a great guy. A great friend. A great brother. I feel so very fortunate to have gotten to spend as many years as I got to have with Calvin. It breaks my heart that we had drifted away as of the last couple years. But he was truly a beat friend. From centennial. To discovery. To high school and beyond. The joy he brought to people. The joy he brought me. Not many people get to experience a friendship like that. And I am so lucky I got to spend so many years with him.

  6. I did not know Calvin personally but worked with his mom Kim for a short time at the Village and I know how much Kim loves her boys….Kim, I am so very sorry for the loss of your son. My son Dan is about the same age as Calvin so your pain is very palpable to me. I want to express my deepest sympathies to you and to the rest of the Armbrust family. I will be praying for healing and peace for your family. If you ever need someone to talk to and still have my number, just give me a call.
