Morris “Babe’s” Calfee III

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.

Arrangements entrusted to Penn’s Funeral Home, Pulaski. Condolences can be sent to

    To all of Babe’s family – Babe was one of my best friends and one of the kindest and most loving people that I have known. I last saw him at Wade’s when I was in Virgina and we were happy to see each other after 30 years. My heart broke today when I heard the news. My thoughts are with all of you, and especially of Babe – who I wlil always remember with love. God bless all of you.
