After a long illness J. C. Callahan was claimed by death last Thursday night.

He came home and was getting along well when infection set in again and his leg had to be removed. The past few weeks he was getting along well, driving his car and going about his usual business seemingly making good recovery. He suffered a heart attack Thursday from which he did not recover.
