Rev David Lee Callihan

  • Burial Pikeville, Pike County, Kentucky, USA
  • Memorial ID 30823711

Beloved son to Estill Callihan and Avonelle Polley-Callihan. Husband to deceased wife Judy Carol Hamlin-Callihan. Father to Jenny Callihan-Rogers. Brother to Carol Roberts.

My dad was the Reverand of Engeryville Freewill Baptist Church. He was a coal truck driver. He was a wonderful husband and a loving father. When asked if he had any regrets in his life...his only regret was that he waited until he was 23 to be saved and devote his life to helping others and serving Christ.

God only allowed me three years with my dad, but he works in mysterious ways. I may not remember much, but I will never forget how much he loved me. The night before he passed, we were outside. He was holding me and I took off running up the driveway, toward the road. He ran after me, grabbed me, and took me back towards our home. When he sat down he told my mom and his good friend "if anything ever happens to me, never let her forget how much her daddy loved her." It comforts me to this day that I was blessed with two wonderful, amazing, loving people as parents.
