Ed was my jr. high school science teacher in 1952 and taught me morse code and Helped me get my novice license in 1952 at age 13 in Pensacola, Florida. A year later I passed my general class license in Mobile, Alabama and today in San Antonio, Texas have the same call sign. Years later Ed became an Mechanical Engineer.He was a very good C.W. operator and participated in C.W. traffic nets.Sadly he died of advanced Alzheimer's for which there is no cure. Two of my friends have spouses who have Alzheimer's -- Bill Cooey, K4QOJ whose spouse Sue, K4BDF has advanced Alzheimer's and Bill Spain, W4BGG has a spouse with Alzheimer's. Ed Callaway had a beautiful twin engine aircraft around 15 years ago and loved to fly. I will be forever grateful to Ed that he introduced me to amateur radio, which I have enjoyed here in the U.S. and in Saudi Arabia (guest operator at HZ1AB) and in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, licensed as YB0AWU/YB2. Ed's wife Pat, also a radio amateur notified me of his death.
