Morris “Babe’s” Calfee III, age 63 of Pulaski, formerly of Radford departed this life on Feb. 3, 2013. Babe’s was born May 11, 1949, one of nine children born to Morris Alfred Calfee and Ruth Waller Calfee in Radford. He attended the Radford City public schools and graduated for Christiansburg Institute in Montgomery County. During his childhood years, Morris was a member of West Street Baptist Church of Radford.
He worked for Wades Supermarket in Radford for several years. He was a loving son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. Babe’s was an excellent cook and family and friends can attest to the fact he could “burn” some barbecue ribs and make the best potato salad. His love, smile and cooking will be missed.
His parents, Morris A. Calfee and Ruth N. Waller Calfee, paternal and maternal grandparents and two brothers, Charles Calfee and Monroe Calfee, preceded him in death.
He leaves to cherish his memory four sisters, Mary Eaves, Judy Manns (Chester) and Janie Lewis, all of Dublin; Virginia and Carolyn Calfee of Pulaski; two brothers, James Calfee of Christiansburg and Jerome Calfee of Portsmouth, and sister-in-law, Kaye Calfee of San Diego, Calf. He also leaves a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
The funeral will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9 at Dublin United Methodist Church, 424 E. Main St., Dublin, with Elder David Lewis officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service.
