Mr Callahan thank you, you gave me humility 6th grade 1951 Bowen school. I've never forgotten you.

Herb has enriched the lives of many people through his dedicated service in the education and wise guidance of the young people in his community. We consider ourselves fortunate that he and his wife Audrey joined our extended family through the marriage of his wonderful daughter Lynne and our son Mark. Both sets of grandparents have delighted in their two children - Jimmy and Sam. During our shared family occasions over the years we have enjoyed Herb's humor and wise comments. We have always admired him and will sorely miss him.

Our sincere sympathy on the loss of Mr. Calhallhan
We truly enjoyed our time with Herb while on vacation; on the Cape and in upstate New York. His unique brand of humor, good nature and interest in others is something we remember as truly special.
We hope you find some peace in knowing that these gifts live on in all his children, grandchildren, friends, students and campers that had the pleasure of him in their life.
-Our prayers and love are with you today as always,
The Orlay Family
