Mr. Callaway was a Police Officer for the Highland Park (NJ) Police Dept. for 17 years, retiring as Sergeant in 1980.

For many years, he volunteered as a Little League coach in Colchester and was a Life Member of the American Legion. Most importantly, he will be remembered as a devoted husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend, who will be greatly missed.
