Roger Wayne Callaham, Jr, age 36, of Evington, VA affectionately known as “Dub” and “W.C.” went to be with the Lord March 28, 2011 at his residence. He was born February 12, 1975 to Roger W. Callaham, Sr. and the late Doris “Peachie” Spinner Callaham. He was a 1994 graduate of Jefferson Forest High School and was an employee of Accutech Fabrication, Inc. in Lynchburg.
As a young child, Roger spent a lot of time with his two cousins. They called themselves the “3 Amigos” ~ W.C., Isaac Slaughter and Jerry Martinez. They often laughed about all of the fond memories of their childhood. He enjoyed the outdoors; and as a child would often help his dad cut firewood. He was proud to be a Jefferson Forest Cavalier State Football Champion in 1992 and 1993, and he loved the Oakland Raiders. He enjoyed hanging with his “fellas”, as he called them. He will be sorely missed by all his friends and family.
Roger shared his love of sports with his son, “Little Man” and introduced him to fishing at an early age. His son also loves football and will proudly wear his Dad’s #25 on his jersey in the future. He and Amaya went to a lot of special places together and he attended all of her softball games. He just attended Anessa’s first soccer game and the two of them loved to color together. He absolutely adored his children and spending time with them. Everything Roger worked for was for his children. He will still watch over them ~ he is now their Guardian Angel.
He was a loving father; totally devoted to his three children, Amaya Chantall Callaham, Anessa Janay Callaham, and Roger Wayne Callaham, III. He is also survived by his father, Roger W. Callaham, Sr. of Forest, VA; two sisters, Kenisha (Daniel) Bachelle of Lynchburg, VA; Nicole (Rashaud) Palmer of Youngsville, NC; paternal grandparents, Clarence (Matilda) Callaham, maternal grandmother, Verlie M. Thompson; three nieces, Natalie, Marissa and Isabella Bachelle; five aunts, nine uncles, a devoted friend, Erin Carey, dear friend and mother of his children, Selena Puscas, and a host of cousins and special friends.
