James R. Callihan “Jim”

Jim Callihan, 79, formerly from Chicora, passed away on December 19, 2022, in Centreville, VA after a long battle with leukemia.

Jim graduated from Karns City High School & attended Clarion State. He entered the IT field in its infancy & continued in that line of work until he retired at age 70.

He was an avid reader especially, of the Civil War & World War II, and found his ancestry to be of interest. Several trips were made with his two sons to France & Ireland where they toured battlegrounds and ancestorial sites.

Jim was a very devout, honest, & humble man. He had a tremendous sense of humor and was loved by all. His children, grandchildren, & great-grandchildren gave him the greatest pleasure.

Surviving is his wife & high school sweetheart, Linda Sigworth Callihan, sons Chris (Donna) of Charlotte, NC & Mark (Shari) of Ashburn, VA, grandchildren Matthew, Victoria (Tori), & Robert, great grandchildren Fallon, Porter, & Emily, siblings Sis Wiles, Kathy Edwards, Fred, Tom, and Dan.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents, Mildred (Williams) & Oscar Callihan and siblings, Bill Callihan, Shirley Heitlinger, & Pat Liberto.

A celebration mass will be held at a later date at St John Neumann, Reston, VA

If desired, donations to St Jude’s Children's Hospital or a charity of your choice.
