Archie possessed a unique sense of humor that made him the “life of the party” at any setting or family gathering. He was guaranteed to bring the jokes and laughter. Archie had an affinity for family closeness and always desired his family to be in one place, together. He always had words of advice and wisdom for his younger nieces and nephews. They knew whenever he would call them to the side and say “let me talk to you for a minute…”, “Archie Cal” was about to administer some life lessons.
