Obituary of Calvin Paul Bloomfield

CP (Calvin Paul) Bloomfield was born on June 11, 1942 and passed away peacefully and with dignity on Sunday, July 24, 2022.

 

CP was a private man and was a strong man of faith and a great love for his family and his country.  He is now with his wife and many other family members. 

 

CP graduated high school at Windyville, class of 1960, he then joined the army, and we all know where he ended up going, to Vietnam, where he made some lifetime comrades while also losing some.  Salute to all of them. He earned his associate degree while there then came to be a helicopter pilot, later to getting certified for fixed wing aircraft, spending a 20-year career serving his country.  After retiring from the army, he eventually moved back to Lebanon, Missouri where he became a mail carrier and Red Cross volunteer, serving his community. 

 

If he were to read this, he would probably lash that wrath at us, but we want to share the words of his granddaughter because it perfectly describes the man his family was fortunate to have. 

 

“Professional storyteller, coffee connoisseur, tickle monster, master adventurer, best hugs and kisses, treat sneaker, wooly booly beard, yodeling man, artist, writer, beauty school survivor, rollerblading stuntman, pilot, spelunker, a bright-eyed little girl’s favorite partner in crime”.

 

He is preceded in death by his wife of 53 years, Carole Jean, his mother, Naomi Boan, sister Betty Kellison and beloved niece Vivian Jennings.  Survivors include two children, son William Joseph Paul Bloomfield and Sheila, daughter Melissa (Missy) Scurfield and Bob, four grandchildren, Andy, Kama, Caty, and Zach, two brothers Richard and Ronald and Valerie, one sister Jeanette Dampier and Duke, and many nieces and nephews and cousins
