Obituary

George Patton Calloway was born on December 4, 1947, in Thomas County, Georgia, to the late Robert and
Bertha Calloway. At school age, he attended South Coolidge Elementary and later graduated from Magnolia High School
in Thomasville, Georgia. At Magnolia High, he played football with the Mighty Buccaneers


While in elementary school, he joined Sweetfield Missionary Baptist Church and attended occasionally during his adult
life. Shortly after graduation, George joined the United States Army in 1966. During his tenure, George served three tours
in Vietnam and retired as a Sergeant First Class. George was employed with Thomas County Public Works (TCPW) before
retiring after fifteen years. He later returned to TCPW and worked until his passing. George was not an idle person. He
enjoyed his family, friends, and was very outgoing.  In the late 1960s, he married Juanita Thompson, and to this
union, two beautiful daughters were born, Sharon Grant and Demetrice Calloway. Later in life, he married Barbara Reed
and moved to St. Louis, Missouri. After relocating back to Thomasville, Georgia, George married Mary Haywood. They
were faithfully married until her death. Later, George married and divorced Mildred France.


George leaves to cherish his memories: two daughters, Sharon (Emilio) Grant and Demetrice Calloway; three stepdaughters,
Candice Haywood, Michele Hamm, and Erica Watkins; three stepsons, John Reed, Sharn Reed, and King France,
Jr.; devoted sister, Virginia Williams; four brothers-in-law, Charles McCrary, Elmer Thompson, Jerry McCrary, and Leroy
