C. Calvert Sauter, 44, Waiter at Linwood's

A memorial service for C. Calvert Sauter, a waiter at Linwood's Cafe-Grille in Owings Mills who was killed in a Jan. 24 traffic accident, was held yesterday at St. Stephen Lutheran Church.

Mr. Sauter, 44, of Pikesville, who was known as Cal, worked winters at the restaurant and summers since 1986 at Chez-Le-Mer in Rehoboth Beach, Del.

His interest in preparing gourmet food began as a child, but he never wanted to become a professional chef because of the long hours, said his mother, Viven T. Sauter of Morrell Park. "He loved people and enjoyed being a waiter," she said.

He was born in Baltimore and raised in Lansdowne, where he graduated from high school in 1970. He attended Catonsville Community College.
