As a child, Callahj spent time with his family in the South End, Roxbury and Dorchester neighborhoods. Callahj was a very respectful, humorous and compassionate young man. He had many friends and was always a loyal friend to all of them. At the age of three, Callahj learned how to ride a bike. Callahj was very adventurous and at the age of four, he learned how to ride dirt bikes. Callahj was an excellent swimmer and learned how to swim at a young age. Callahj had taught himself how to repair bicycles and dirt bikes, and in turn, became the neighborhood “bike mechanic.”
Callahj loved reptiles, insects, and animals. He was such a great caretaker to his animals that he began to teach others as well as share information on the fine art of keeping pets. Franklin Park Zoo was a favorite place for him to visit. He enjoyed playing a variety of sports, including basketball in various communities.
Callahj was known for having a beautiful smile that would brighten up any room he entered. He was always the “man of the house” and took care of everyone, especially the younger kids who came to visit. Callahj was so loving and kindhearted, with a beautiful personality. When Callahj would enter the room, we were all filled with the joy of his presence and the goodness of his heart.
Callahj kept himself busy by involving himself in various community programs such as Big Business Program at the Lee School, Pop Warner Football, and the Architect Program sponsored by Wentworth Institute.
Callahj found humor in many situations, especially the stories of traveling with family members, whether by car or plane: Stories of road trips were hilarious.
Callahj had a strong work ethic, which was developed at an early age. He would help his neighborhood by doing odd jobs, such as, shoveling snow: as a way to earn a few dollars. He worked with his recently passed Uncle Brent F. Henry at the Julia F. Butler Youth Center, where he was a leader and mentor to his peers.
Callahj attended Boston Public Schools. He was always great with his hands and talked about a trade in carpentry and/or mechanics. He was inspired to pursue his abilities in dirt bike mechanics, hopefully becoming an expert in the field of mechanical engineering.
Callahj was always willing to help his family by completing various home projects such as painting, landscaping, and helping everyone with other tasks. He was very clever in figuring out how to solve problems.
Callahj had a beautiful, strong bond with his mother, Janine. He is now joined with his father, Calvin Lewis Langford and his beloved grandparents, Jean Dolores Langford and Clyde Edmonds.
Callahj was a loving and attentive brother to Logan Henry. He loved his grandmother, JoAnn “Taffy” Butler and his grandfather Blaine Henry Sr. He is mourned by a host of loved Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Friends.
