Curly was the best mechanic around; on occasion, friends would travel quite a distance so that Curly could work on their cars. Curly had many friends and was loved for his outgoing personality and he was an absolute comedian. Curly was not perfect, but he was a very special man. He would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. Curly lived life to the fullest, he kept people on their toes, but, he will be deeply missed by all who loved and knew him.
Curly is preceded in death by his parents, Onnie and Elsie Calloway; a son, Luther E. “Kojak” Calloway, Jr.; brothers, Thomas Gore, Jody Gore, and W. T. “Red” Calloway.
