Calvin W. Sachs, 79, of Seger, Derry, Twp., died February 8, 2022, at Excela Health Latrobe Hospital due to complications of COVID 19.
He was born September 14, 1942, in Forbes Road, PA, the son of the late Harry and Armilda (Hafer) Sachs.
Always a fixer of things, he owned Cal’s Repair Shop in Derry for 32 years prior to retiring. In addition to his family, he loved fishing, hunting, woodworking, and classic cars including his cherished 1971 Super Bee.
In addition to his parents, Cal was preceded in death by his infant grandchildren Tristan and Celeste Lott.
Cal is survived by his wife of 57 years Donna M. (Keffer) Sachs of Seger; three children Dawna M. Campbell and husband Lyle of Derry; Amanda M. Lott of West Chester, PA, and Calvin C. Sachs of Cisne, IL; two brothers, Harry and Leroy; and one sister, Henrietta.
Cal’s grandchildren affectionately called him Pop Pop. Austin Woods, Olivia Woods and her partner Korey Reed, and Madeline Lott will miss him and his beautiful creations. Cal was thrilled to meet his great-grandson Karter Reed in 2020.
Several nieces and nephews enjoyed a close relationship with “Uncle Cal.”
He will be missed by his neighbors and many human friends, and one devoted chocolate lab, Diesel.
Friends may call on the family on Thursday, February 10, at Gianelli’s II in Greensburg, between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM.
