In Memory

Glenn Eugene Callaway

Glenn Eugene Callaway

Received an In Memory Notice that our classmate Glenn Eugene Callaway passed away on July 23, 2021, in Austin, Texas. The reported cause of death is cancer.

As I remember, our classmate mostly went by Eugene or Gene. He was a member of the Irvin High School Computer Club and the National Honor Society. According to Eugene's profile on this website, he  worked for the state of Texas in three agencies, The State Hospital, The State School and lastly in The Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impairerd.

For all who knew Eugene, especially Sam Odoms:

Feel no guilt in laughter, he'd know how much you care

Feel no guilt in laughter, he'd know how much you care.
Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share.
You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to.
He'd hope that you could carry on the way you always do.
So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared,
The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared.
Let memories surround you, a word someone may say
Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day,
That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here,
And fills you with the feeling that he is always near.
For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart
And he will live forever locked safely within your heart.
