Stuart Callihan passed away unexpectedly but peacefully in his sleep on Feb. 26, 2024; at Sandy Health and Rehab Center where he had resided for the past 2 years. Stuart was born in Biloxi Mississippi on Jan. 18, 1954, to Lucile and Stuart Callihan. In his younger years Stu was a avid outdoorsman who enjoyed horseback riding, gunsmithing, target shooting and fishing. In his older years he took up shooting pool and always loved a friendly game and loved passing time with books, sci fi movies and loved just about anything to do with history. Stu enjoyed several years working as a long-haul truck driver and later worked in the security industry. Our family will miss his big heart and unique personality. He was a very thoughtful person and will be missed by all who knew him.
