Paul Callow


#1

I am sad to inform those who knew him that Paul Callow passed early this morning, just short of his 80th birthday. He was a close friend and mentor and will not be forgotten. The PA Cartridge Collectors show that we ran together for 14 years will continue in his honor.

Jon - I know how close you were to Pual and I send my sympathies for your loss, and that of our hobby as a whole. Paul was a good guy. I will miss his great knowledge and biting humor at St. Louis as I did this year. His contributions to our hobby and knowledge will not be forgotten by those of us that new him. My sympathies to his family.

I will miss the crusty old gent. His family greatly appreciates all the calls, cards, and visits that they and Paul have received since Paul fell ill.

Hi, Jon…About a year ago…I got a call from Paul, concerning Krag cartridges he had for sale, which I happily purchased…sure mean more now and I will treasure them in his memory…knew him for a number of years and was always happy to see him at St Louis…Randy

I first met Paul at a cartridge show some 30 or so years ago and, have been friends with him ever since. A man of Paul’s caliber comes along once in a great while. I will truly miss his ribbing me to eat my greens and, telling me that I don’t know how good a rare piece of steak is. He will be sorely missed. M. Rea

Well, I have not been fortunate enough to meet Paul, but I would like to send my sympathy and condolence to all his family and friends. I have heard Jon speak of him many times since I joined the IAA. If he was a mentor to you guys then I thank him as I have learned allot from many of you that in turn learned from him. It sounds like he was a very special man that I am sure will be missed my many.

Sincerely,

Jason

Jon, please pass along my condolences to Paul’s family. He was indeed one of the folks I always looked forward to talking with in St. Louis. He was very knowledgeable, of course, but he was reliably also just a very, very pleasant fellow to be around.
