On a beautiful Sunday morning, he walked through the pearly gates into the waiting arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Lehren Martin Callahan was born April 10, 1943 to the late Lavelle Martin and Anna Louise Callahan in Longview, Tx. He grew up in East Texas where he served the community as a Deputy Sheriff and chief of the Gum Springs Volunteer Fire Department, later working at Texas Eastman and Waukesha Pierce and driving an 18-wheeler. He enjoyed visiting with people (never met a stranger), running the bus route for church, wood working, the Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys, and eating cookies. Most of all, he loved his family. He was welcomed in heaven by his parents, stepdaughter Ruby Brown, son in law, Joey Green and his beloved dog, Buster. Those left behind to cherish his memory are his wife of over 20 years, Lynda Callahan, his children Dale Callahan, Kelly Green, Meliha Webb, Sarah Milam, stepdaughter Patsy Foster and husband J.W., 10 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren. Until we meet again, we will know we were blessed in knowing him. Services are pending at this time.
Memorial services will be 10 AM, Saturday, October 5, 2019, at Fellowship Baptist Church in Liberty City. 389 Rice Road, Liberty City, Texas 75662
