CREVE COEUR ~ Kenneth Lee Callarman, 95, of Creve Coeur, passed away at 9:08 p.m. Thursday, May 27, 2021 at OSF ST Frances Medical Center in Peoria.

Born January 12, 1926 in Gentry Arkansas to Charles A. and Pauline (VanDolah) Callarman, he married Eileen (Newell) on September 11, 1948.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife; three brothers, William Callarman, Max Callarman, and Richard Callarman.

Kenneth was a World War II veteran of the Army. He was self-employed as a painter for over 50 years retiring in 2005.

Kenneth enjoyed fishing, watching the birds at his feeder and the squirrels on his porch. He played the guitar most of his adult life. As a jack-of-all trades, he could fix most anything and was always available to help when needed. Two things he never turned down: watching the Chicago Cubs or a visit to Bob Evans for biscuits and gravy.

His Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Arrangements have been entrusted with Preston-Hanley Funeral Homes & Crematory in Creve Coeur.


  • New Castle Bible Church


  • Celebration of Life at later date
