The son of Clarence and Evadean (TenKley) Brink, Cal was born on July 3, 1950, in Sheldon, Iowa. He graduated from Sheldon High School. On May 28, 1977, he was united in marriage to Linda Jennings at the Santiago United Methodist Church. He worked for 20 years with U.P.S. and retired as a corrections officer after 14 years, retiring in 2013. He enjoyed target shooting, music, gardening, and was a car enthusiast. His greatest joy, however, came from the time spent with his grandchildren.
