Aimo was born on February 11, 1942 in Taavetti, Luumäki, Finland a son of the late Unto Olavi Hyyrynen and Lea Anna (Nikunen) Hyyrynen. Aimo served in the Army in Finland. Educated in primary school in Taavetti, Luumäki he graduated High School in Kouvola 1961 and later his college degree from Helsingin Teknillinen Korkeakoulu (Aalto University).

He was also interested in real estate and owned several properties in Worcester County and Florida. He enjoyed construction projects that improved these properties and during his retirement he would spend weeks during winter months improving these properties in Florida.

Kal was a very active member and familiar face at the former Mount Olivet Lutheran Church on Prospect Street where he served on its church council several times and was the chairman of its property committee for many years. He was responsible for organizing the work days in spring and fall to spruce up the church property as his pickup truck was a familiar fixture when he was pruning bushes or riding the lawn mower. Kal was a talented guy who could fix almost anything. He had a love affair with his Chevrolet Corvette and rides on Sunday mornings began with his corvette being the first car in the church parking lot and almost the last to leave.
