Jesse Preston, son of Loren Wesley and Florence (Vanderpool) Callaway, was born July 5, 1908 in the southern part of Barry county, Missouri; and at the age of 71 years, two months, and 24 days, departed this life at his home 501 Mountain, Cassville, Missouri, September 29, 1979. Mr. Callaway was a graduate of the class of 1929, of the Eureka Springs High School, of Eureka Springs, Arkansas; and was selected as the Outstanding Alumnus at the Reunion of the class earlier this year. (The 50th anniversary for his graduating class.) Jesse was a printer and linotype operator and started to work for the Carroll Courier shortly after high school. He later worked for newspapers in Guymon, Oklahoma; Woodward, Okla. and in Faris, Arkansas. In 1947, Mr. Callaway went to work for the Cassville Democrat and has remained a steady and dependable part of that organization until his death. On December 24, 1932, Jesse Preston Callaway was united in marriage with Miss Vada Del Glocksien, in Eureka Springs, Arkansas; and this devoted wife of nearly 47 years survives. Jesse and Vada were both members of First Christian Church, of Cassville, where he had served as a deacon and had compiled an unusual record of 17 years of perfect attendance in Sunday School. Jesse had become a Christian in early adulthood and his faith showed in his patient personality of service to others. In the recreational side of his life, he was a member of the Alpine Hiking Club, of Eureka Springs, and the 7-Valleys Breakers C.B. Club, of the Cassville, area. Jesse was preceded in death by his only sister, Fannie Clark, but is survived by one step-brother, Rollie Garner, of Hawthorne, Califo. He also leaves two daughters, Mrs. Velma Joyce Brown, of Purdy, MO and Mrs. Shirley Jean Moore, Pratt, Kans. and his only son, J. L. Callaway, of Exeter, MO. There are 13 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and 8 step-great grandchildren. There are many other relatives and friends and former working associates who are saddened by the sudden death of Jesse Preston Callaway.
