Dr. Calvin Engelmann died peacefully on November 2, 2022. Calvin was born March 25, 1932, in Pawnee City, Nebraska to Reverend Alvin Engelmann and Martha Achenbach Engelmann. He moved at the age of ten to Alma, Kansas, where he attended Alma High School and graduated valedictorian.
Calvin attended the University of Kansas for undergraduate (B.A., Chemistry, 1953) and medical school (1957) studies. He completed an internship at Kansas City General Hospital and then a two-year tour as a medical officer with the U.S. Army, stationed in Wertheim, Germany (1958-1960).
Calvin returned to Kansas City and was a surgical resident at Kansas City General. He was in private practice at Baptist, St. Mary's, Trinity, and St. Joseph hospitals until 1994. After retirement, Calvin started a medical clinic in Honduras and enjoyed time at family farms in Kansas.
In 1955, Calvin married Anneliese Schnierle, and they had a wonderful marriage until her passing in 2011. His favorite memories with Anneliese were their many trips together, with family, and with friends to Germany.
Calvin is survived by two daughters, Cheryl Engelmann (Mark Dyslin) and Dr. Lori Engelmann; four grandchildren, Nicholas Dyslin (Brittany Dyslin), Jenna Flottman, Jordan Dyslin, and Garrett Flottman; and one great-granddaughter, Sophia Dyslin. He is preceded in death by his wife, Anneliese; parents, Alvin and Martha; brother, John; and son-in-law, Jeff Flottman.
Calvin was the consummate provider and worked hard his entire life to provide every opportunity possible to his children, grandchildren, and generations to come. He always maintained a strong sense of family and supported his family in all their endeavors.
