Edward Emile McCallef Jr., 86 years old, went to be with the Lord on November 19, 2020 at 9:40 pm, surrounded by his loving family. Born in New Orleans, LA to the late Edward Emile McCallef Sr., and the late Camille Faust McCallef. He was the beloved husband to Arlene Dahmer McCallef for the past 45 years. Father to Anthony Edward McCallef (Vicki), Edward Emile McCallef III (Tracey), Teresa Brehm Bahle (late Thomas), and Edward Brehm (Kim). Grandfather to Vanessa (Josh), Heather, Jennifer, Thomas Jr., Zoe, Anthony Jr., and the late Casey Marks. Edward was also a great-grandfather to Kylie. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins, and in-laws. Edward was a proud member of the Louisiana Carpenters Local Union 1846 for 54 years. In his younger years, he served our country in the United States National Guard. Edward was a resident of Folsom, LA for 20 years. He carried on the tradition passed onto him by his father by being a proud member of the Scottish Rite, Jerusalem Temple, Grand Lodge of LA 102 F & AM, the Farhad Grotto, and loved riding in the parades with the Tin Lizzie Unit. Edward was an avid outdoorsman who loved going shrimping, crawfishing, hunting, and trapping with his family and friends. His most cherished times were taking his children and grandchildren to Disney World, and having family over on the weekends to have lunch and visit. He loved sharing stories of his experiences growing up on his parent’s dairy farm (McCallef & Son Dairy), and from his shrimping, hunting, crawfishing, and raising livestock days. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all family, friends and neighbors for their outstanding love and support this past year.
