William Calvin "Cal" Muirhead
June 24, 1928 - December 27, 2015
On the afternoon of December 27, Cal passed away peacefully surrounded by his family.
Cal was born in June of 1928 in Weyburn, Saskatchewan and was raised in Regina. He and Dorothy, the love of his life, whom was also his high-school sweetheart, married and started their family.
Music was his life, career, and passion. He got his start in the Regina Boys' Band and eventually joined the R.C.M.P Band, and a variety of Canadian Military Bands.
With his continual support of the band, and upstanding membership, Cal soon became the oldest member of the Kamloops Community Band, and an Honorary Member; he continued to join us for practices and performances with his Bassoon and Tuba as time would allow. He played his last concert with us on December 3rd, 2015.
Cal was also an avid and talented composer, having written numerous musical compositions - even some specifically for the KCB.
On his down time, Cal enjoyed reading, telling stories, and visiting with his friends and family, near and far.
He was a mentor and friend to many. He will be greatly missed.
