Raymond W. Callis, Sr., 87, of Dickson City, died Thursday morning at the Regional Hospital of Scranton, after being stricken ill at home. He was preceded in death by his wife, Geraldine Bylinski Callis.  She died on May 22, 2009.

Born in Old Forge he was the son of the late John and Julia Neishell Callis, and he was a graduate of Old Forge High School.  He was an active member of St. Mary’s Visitation Church, Dickson City where he was a Eucharistic Minister, a member of the Ushers Society, Holy Name Society, and he was a bingo worker.  He served two years with the US Army.  Ray had been employed by Capitol Records for 20 years, and for 35 years with the Dickson City Borough.

Ray was a loving and caring father, grandfather, and friend to many.  He enjoyed bowling with his buddies, and he recorded multiple 300 games.  He was a dedicated Penn State, and New York Giant fan.  Ray dedicated his life to caring for his mother-in-law Jean Bylinski after the death of his wife, and he loved spending time with his grandchildren.  Raymond was so grateful for the dedicated care he received from the medical teams on the 7th floor, Regional Hospital, and Allied Transitional Care Unit, who he referred to as “Angels on Earth”.  He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
