Nothing is known about Calvin's life prior to or as the outbreak began. He may have lived in or near Woodbury, Georgia.
At some point after the outbreak began, Calvin became a construction worker in Woodbury.
There he worked with Joshua Hamilton and the other men. After working with Josh for several weeks, the two become good friends. After Josh is killed, he makes a coffin out of a piano case, the only container large enough to hold Josh. It takes Bob and himself hours to dig Josh's grave in the frozen ground. He later attends Josh's funeral along with Lilly Caul, Bob Stookey, Megan Lafferty, Alice Warren, and Dr. Stevens where he removes his Caterpillar cap out of respect.
Calvin takes part in the prison assault. He survives the first attack and retreats along with the rest of the militia. After Gabe's death, many more soldiers get killed one by one. Calvin is shot through the head and goes down in a burst of blood mist from the back of his skull, his Caterpillar cap flies off as he drops to the ground.
