We regret to have to let you know that a remarkable man by the name of Jim Callow has passed away. Jim passed away recently, leaving behind a legacy of love, generosity, and inspiration for those who would follow in his footsteps. Jim’s life, which started in September 1939, served as a constant example of his persevering personality and commercial acumen.
In 1969, Jim and his business partner established Hingley & Callow Oils, a company that would go on to become successful while also serving as a testament to Jim’s unwavering perseverance and work ethic. Today, Hingley & Callow Oils is still in business. Because of his commitment to his work and the individuals he hired, Jim developed throughout the course of his career into more than just a manager. He developed as a friend, mentor, and advisor to his staff.
He was a great person to work with because of his approachability and readiness to listen, which defined his leadership style and made him a great leader. Jim’s passing has left a void that cannot be replaced and will never be filled again, not just in the business world but also in the hearts of everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. His impact was felt in the individuals he touched with his kindness and compassion far beyond the office.
His impact extended well beyond the office. We are reminded that Jim’s legacy will continue to act as a source of inspiration for us as we come to terms with the enormity of this loss. His work ethic, passion, and ability to forge deep connections are examples of the incredible guy he was and always will be.
