August 30, 1942 - May 3, 2010
Father Lynn McCallum, age 67, was surrounded by loving family members at a hospital in Ft. Myers, Florida, when God took His faithful servant home on Monday, May 3, 2010. Lynn was born in western Nebraska to the Reverend Mark Donald McCallum and Dolores Campbell McCallum. His first pet, a dog, was a gift from the Chief of the Pine Ridge Reservation where Lynn's father was chaplain. He earned his B.A. at the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 1964 and his D.Div. at Virginia Theological Seminary in 1968. He was ordained a priest in the Episcopal Church in 1968, just like his father before him, and served parishes in the Washington, D.C. area, Michigan and Ohio. Fr. McCallum was active in the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio for 20 years, as Rector of St. Paul's, Oregon, and of St. Andrew's, Toledo, from which he retired in July 2007. During his tenure at St. Andrew's, the parish family more than doubled. He was famous for his drawings that accompanied his sermons and the dramas he wrote that church members presented, both which further explained the Gospel. He continued his painting after his retirement, and his work was displayed at a warehouse-area gallery. Lynn's life of giving and joy will continue to be celebrated by his mother, Dolores McCallum, Omaha, Nebraska; his beloved wife of 29 years, Mary, with whom he restored their beautiful home in the Old West End; his sister, Carol Kay (Robert) Smith, Olatha, Kansas; his brother, Duncan Kent (Sandra) McCallum; his children, Donald Andrew (Giuliana) McCallum, Jessica McCallum, Malcolm Campbell, Leah Campbell and Towle Campbell (Ryan) Hooker; his 4 grandchildren; and by all the clergy, parishioners and neighbors who loved him, too. The family invites you to visitation on Wednesday, May 12, 3:00 to 7:00 p.m., at Ansberg-West Funeral Home, 3000 West Sylvania Avenue, and on Thursday, May 13, 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, 2770 West Central (one-half mile east of Secor Road), parking and entrance on Chollett Drive. The Right Reverend Mark Hollingsworth, Bishop of Ohio, and the Reverend Jeremiah Williamson, Rector of St. Andrew's, will officiate at the celebration of Fr. McCallum's life on Thursday, May 13, 12:00 Noon. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations be sent to St. Andrew's Episcopal Church.
