Calvin Ray Profitt, 74, passed away peacefully of natural causes on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017 at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center in Libby. He was born on Jan. 24, 1943 in Orofino, Idaho to John and Grace Profitt. He was the second child of 11 brothers and sisters, so there was lots of activity in his family. He started school in Orofino and then attended different schools as his father had to move the family for work.
The last school he attended was Flathead High School which he left after his sophomore year to enlist in the National Guard. He completed his service and was honorably discharged. He attended Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, Oregon for two semesters. Calvin decided school was not for him and went back to logging and driving trucks.
Calvin retired from the Teamsters Union in Anchorage, Alaska in 2008 and moved back to Libby to enjoy fishing, hunting and visiting with his many friends.
Calvin was preceded in death by his parents, John and Grace Profitt; brother Larry Profitt; sisters Judy Johnson and Peggy Cunningham; sons Lane and Shannon Profitt; and stepdaughter Shelly Tweet.
Survivors include his wife Deanna Profitt; daughter Shawnna Robertson; son Raymond Profitt (Kelly); and stepchildren (although they were considered his children) Bernie Clark (Tina), Sally Sutherland and Rick Sutherland (Raeann); siblings Dave Profitt (Claudette), Debbie McCray (Jim), Loren Profitt, Glenda Profitt, Ramona Cain (Pat), Cindy Brown, Cecil Profitt and Tammy Burnside; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Arrangements are by Schnackenberg & Nelson Funeral Home in Libby. Online condolences and memories may be shared at www.schnackenbergfh.com.
