Brian William McCallum, 66, loving and devoted husband of Susan (Snedeker) (Kadel) McCallum, passed at 6:20 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3, 2017. He was born Dec. 11, 1950, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, to Dorothy Mae (Leavers) and Gerald McCallum.
Brian had learned on Sunday, Oct. 29, he was Leukemia free after a long journey to, and following, a stem cell bone marrow transplant thanks to a match of an unrelated donor. This generosity gave him almost a year we would not have had with this great Dad, Papa, husband and friend. Unfortunately, he suffered a stroke on Monday and passed peacefully Friday just as the last words of the Lord's Prayer were spoken over him. Brian leaves behind a large blended family he loved more than anything. He was a very caring friend to many, enjoyed fishing, and working alongside his wife at Kadel's Hallmark. His humor, love, and kindness will be greatly missed by both his families in Canada and Indiana.
Brian wished to be cremated so your memories of him would be of your times together. In lieu of flowers, please visit his memorial page at www.debaunfuneralhomes.com for charitable contribution information and more of his story.
A celebration of life is planned for Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017. Fellowship and food will begin at 5 p.m., where memories and anecdotes may be shared followed by a service, 6:30 p.m. at DeBaun Springhill Funeral Home.
