Other Comments:

Calvin Thomas Hair was born March 12, 1943 in Beaver, Utah to Emma Burke and Harry Calvin Hair- the oldest of ten siblings. He died June 28, 2008 in his home in Cedar City, Utah.

Cal grew up in Cedar City, where he attended school and was very active in the local sports programs of Little League and Pony League baseball. He played football and baseball at Cedar High under Coach Decker, and at CSU/(SUU) under Coach Osbourne.

In 1964 Cal married his high school sweetheart Ruth Cooper in the St. George Temple and moved to Salt Lake City to complete his education at the University of Utah. Upon graduation he accepted a commission as a First Lieutenant in the Marine Corp; completing two tours of duty in Viet Nam where he was awarded a Navy Commendation Medal in 1967 for heroic achievement while serving as an Artillery Forward Observer with the Twelfth Marines Third Division and a Bronze Star for meritorious service in connection with combat operations while serving with the First Marine Division in 1970-71.

Leaving the Marine Corp in 1974, he went to work for Mobil Oil Corp for 27 years as a Marketing Rep in the greater Los Angeles area, retiring back to Cedar City in 2003. Calvin loved the mountains, National Parks, rock formations, and color of Southern Utah. Wherever he was living, he would return yearly to hunt, fish and hike in his beloved home state of Utah.

Calvin was a devoted husband and father, and an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served many years working with the young men in the Church (twice as a Bishop). He loved the Youth in the Church and was personally greatly encouraged by their strength of character and fearless examples. He was a rock of steadiness and humor to his family, and a much loved brother, husband, father, and favorite uncle to his 46 nieces and nephews.
Calvin is survived by his wife Ruth (Cooper) and two children, Jesse and Karyn (Ashby), his son-in-law William Ashby and grandson Silas, as well as nine brothers and sisters and their spouses: Dixie and Brent Hatch, David and Linda Hair, Roger and Chanda Hair, Marilyn and Eric McClure, Betty and Mike Whitely, Linda and Don Presser, Mike and Michelle Hair, Steve and Joy Hair, and Kristine and Chris Hermansen.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, July 5, 2008 at 11:00 am at the Cedar View Chapel. Visitations will be held on Friday, July 4, 2008 from 6:00-8:00 pm at the Southern Utah Mortuary and again on Saturday, July 5, 2008 from 9:30-10:30 am at the Cedar View Chapel.
