Bob was a Korean War veteran and was honorably discharged from the US Army as a Sergeant in 1955.  He retired from the Frog Switch Manufacturing Co. in Carlisle after 21 years of service as a machinist.  After his retirement, Bob was a self-employed carpenter and owned and operated his own business for many years.  He formerly attended the Trinity United Methodist Church in Walnut Bottom.  He played rhythm guitar for over ten years with a former local country and western band called, “The Rainbow Valley Boys".  Bob enjoyed fishing, hunting and being around his family and friends.         

He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of nearly 55 years, Marcia A. (McKee) Calaman, a son, Barry L. Calaman of Harrisburg, two daughters; Leslie A. (and her husband, Michael R.)
