In Memoriam: Dick (J.R.) McCallum, January 23, 2019
Dick (J.R.) McCallum was a proud member of the Clan MacCallum-Malcolm Society since 1980. He served as Secretary/Treasurer and North Carolina Convener for the Society for many years during that time. Dick passed away at the age of 94 on Wed. Jan. 23, 2019 at Duke Regional Hospital in Durham, NC. The funeral is being held today, Jan. 26, 2019 at his church at Carrboro, NC. Dick served as a Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps, was active in many civic organizations including the Masons, Boy Scouts, and his church. He was awarded the Clan Society Order of Merit (now named Order of the Rowan Tree) in 2004. Dick will always be remembered by all of us as a great and good man, with a smile on his face and joy in his heart! Our Clan Society was an important part of his life. He was also a mentor for many of us. We will all miss him very much!
