Comments about Brother Callin from a friend:

I remember Brother Callin used to be the teacher at the Stone Church. He understood about the priesthood and the God Head, and other restoration faults teaching and taught them correctly from the Word. He was called "That trouble maker at the Stone Church." I think he was proud to be called that. He had a little grin when ever he talked about it. He was a good teacher.

I went to see him once and he asked me if I knew the difference between the soul and the Spirit and I said that I did. I had made a study of it about six months before. He gave a little sad look and closed his Book of Mormon. I have always wished I had said "No, I don't know." he would have loved to tell me about it.

He was easy to be understood and willing to teach. He was a very humble man.

He liked fresh Mulberries in his cereal for breakfast that he had picked from the tree at the side of his property in Independence.

His wife was a nurse.

Every day he went for a walk and as soon as he grabbed his hat that dog was right there ready to go with him.
