HELPER - William Stewart Callaway (Bill), age 69, passed away Thursday, Jan. 20, 2005 at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center after a long, valiant battle with heart disease and diabetes. He passed peacefully surrounded by his loving family.
Bill was born Dec. 25, 1935 in Diamondville, Wyo., to William and McGretha Callaway. He later married Margaret Norrine Hartnett in Salt Lake City Sept. 10, 1955.
He loved to be outdoors fishing, camping, waterskiing, riding motorcycles and dune buggies, always surrounded by his large, loving family. Trips with him were always an adventure because something would break down every time, but everyone was always eager to enlist one another because that was part of the fun. Nobody could tell a story quite like him and he was so much fun to be around because wherever he went laughter inevitably followed. Bill did more living during his time here than most people ever will. He will be very sorely missed by all those who knew and loved him.
He is survived by wife, Norrine; four children, Stewart Callaway, Crysanne Hall, Cynthia (Lee) Daylee, Angela (Travis) Hartley; 14 grandchildren, Billy, Jimmy, Kimberly, Kaeci and Steven Callaway, Kaitlyn, Ryan and Grayson Hall, Tara Megan and Matthew Dayley, Kiernen, Tristen and Autumn Hartley; great-grandson, Shea Callaway; and sister, Marjorie Lord. Preceded in death by parents, William and McGretha Callaway; sisters, Ava Thomas and Wilma George; brother, James Callaway; and nephew, Steven Green.
The family will be at Mitchell's Funeral Home for the viewing for one hour prior to service.
A graveside service will be held Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2 p.m. at Wellington Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations are being accepted to the William Callaway Memorial Fund to Eastern Utah Community Credit Union, 675 E. 100 North in Price to help with medical expenses.
