Michael Ray Kalvig of Glenville died suddenly in a semitrailer truck accident in Winona County Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2016, one day shy of his 47th birthday.
Mike was born on Oct.19, 1969, to parents Harold and Kate (Weis) Kalvig in Carmichael, California. They moved to Northwood when Mike was one-year-old and later moved to Glenville. Mike graduated from Glenville High School and married his high school sweetheart, Tammy Olson, on Oct. 21, 1989, at First Lutheran Church in Glenville. Together, they raised three wonderful children.
Over 25 years ago, Mike began his career driving truck. Fifteen years ago Mike and his dad started Double K Express. Mike’s children have fond memories of riding in the truck with their dad and having daily phone calls with him while he was over the road. Mike loved getting ready for demolition derbies and doing mechanical work with his hands. In his free time, he enjoyed going hunting and fishing. He will be remembered for his outstanding character and devoting his love and his time generously to his family.
Survivors include his wife, Tammy Kalvig; children Cody (Rochelle) Kalvig, Tanner Kalvig and Marissa Kalvig; grandchildren Alexis, Brantley, Chloey and Kaleb; parents, Harold and Kate; grandparents Arthur and Cathy Kalvig; brother, Rusty (Brandy) Kalvig; parents-in-law Elard and Florence Olson; brothers-in-law Tarryl (Heide) Olson and Steve (Nik) Olson; and sister-in-law Shellby Olson; as well as many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
