Cal was born in Charles City on June 22, 1925, the son of Edwin and Stella Carlson Larson.

They were married 58 years. He worked at Salsbury Laboratories as a maintenance technician for over 40 years. Following his retirement, he volunteered for many years at Immaculate Conception Church and School, assisting with maintenance duties. He also shared his love of astronomy, rock collecting and rope making with many school and church groups. He was a member of Immaculate Conception Church, the Knights of Columbus, VFW and the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA).
