Cherishing his memories are one son, Richard Alvin Sims of South Carolina; one daughter, McKindra Sheree Caldwell (Sherman M.)  of South Carolina; an amazingly proud and loving brother, Rufus Calvin Lindsey(Claire) of Oklahoma;  two grandchildren, Olnisa Gray of North Carolina and Zsymyre Douglas of South Carolina; two great grandchildren Payden Robinson of North Carolina and Noah Douglas of South Carolina; four nieces: Essie Lindsey and Brittany Lindsey of South Carolina; Rachel Lindsey and Tameka Hawkins (Roscoe ) both of Oklahoma; three great nieces, Lindsay Langford and Iyanna Langford of South Carolina; Sophia “Sista” Lindsey of Oklahoma; three nephews, Kevis Lindsey of Georgia, Rufus Lindsey and Ray’EL Lindsey of Oklahoma; 4 great nephews, Caleb Suber and Caden Brown of South Carolina; Demont Hawkins and Devyne Hawkins of Oklahoma; aunts, Patsy Shells, Leila Davis, Frances Suber and Sharon Coleman  of South Carolina;Elizabeth Lindsey of North Carolina; a devoted cousin/friend/ace in the hole Lisa “2 dolla” Wilson who was always “READY TO GO SEE ABOUT AMP” whenever a call came through. (She got that straight from Gladys) and a host of other relatives and friends.

 A private service will be held at a later time.

There’s not much left to say about a man who lived his life “on the go” because for the most part, he remained a mystery unless he just decided to pop up.  Even though, I don’t have much to remember, what unconditional gift he did give me beside life, is the one person that I can always count on to guide me with wisdom and love and that is my Uncle Calvin. He was and will always be my father’s number one fan and he will forever carry and share loving memories and pass them along as long as forever will allow.
