Calvin, aka “Butter,” began his career as a teenager as a very talented mason. For the past eight years he worked at Pondside Nursery, where he was able to pursue his passion with his craftsmanship.
Among being an incredibly hard worker, Calvin was an avid hunter, fisherman, cook and storyteller. He had the amazing ability to light up a room and make everyone laugh with his stories.
He was a very generous man who was well-liked by all in the community. He was a loving son, brother, uncle, life partner, father and friend. His biggest passion in life was being a devoted father to his four children.
Calvin is survived by his partner, Chrystal Albright, and their twins, Aubrey and Layla Lou Valyou; his former wife, Megan Valyou, and their two children, Patrick and Claire Valyou; his mother, Shirley Valyou-Tucker; his siblings, John, Theresa, Dawn and Donny and their significant others; as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and many close friends.
A visitation will be held at Peck & Peck Funeral Home in Copake on Saturday, July 11, from 2 to 5 p.m. Those attending are asked to wear a mask and practice social distancing for the safety of all. Maximum occupancy guidelines will be enforced.
A Celebration of Life will follow at a later date.
Calvin, when we meet again we will be greeted with the infamous, “Hey, what’s up?”
