James Andrew Callahan

James Andrew Callahan, 74, of Wyoming, passed away peacefully at home on November 8, 2022.

James was born on December 2, 1947, to the late James A. Callahan and Jeanne M. Callahan. After James graduated from Bishop McDevitt High School, he went on to attend King’s College.

Post college, James joined the Marine Corp. After serving on both coasts, he was discharged at the rank of Sergeant. He later retired from employment at Toshiba, after many years.

James is survived by his best friend, and loving and devoted wife of 37 years, Marti Shafer Callahan.

He is preceded in death by his grandson, Jacob Busch; his parents, James and Jeanne Callahan; brother, Bob; best friend, Lenny.

James leaves behind his son, James Callahan (his wife, Kristin); his daughter, Amy Callahan; and his granddaughter, Ava Busch.

‘Cal’ was most at home with his best buddy, Charlie (the dog), and outdoors. He loved all things fishing, hunting, and nature-related. He was lucky to share all of these hobbies with his wife and partner-in-crime, Marti.

James always preferred the simple side of life; his final wishes are no different; he definitively requested – no viewing or funeral services.

However, in lieu of such occasions, his family will be hosting a celebration of life event sometime close to December 2, his birthday. Details TBA, ASAP.

We have constructed a memorial webpage where family and friends may leave messages of condolence, funny stories about Jim, or any kind words wished.
