Obituary: A good and noble man has passed from the scenes of Earth to the endless experience of eternity--an experience which no being has every reported back to loved ones here. Dr. Pat McCall, honest big-hearted, lovable man that he was, was freed in the spirit from tenement of clay at some moment near the hour of 1:30 last Monday morning, the 17th inst. Father's Day had just been ushered out when the soul of one of the most devoted fathers it has ever been my fortune to know (and to love myself) winged its flight back to Him who gave it, and to my manner of thinking, Pat McCall had nothing to fear. As we heard a relative say of him, he has always been at peace with all men, and the type of man has nothing to fear that God who has admonished all of us to love our neighbors as ourselves. In writing the passing of Dr. McCall I shall put aside the fact that I am a newspaper man and speak of him as a personal friend whom I had known and loved for more than a quarter of a century, ever since he became a resident of Lexington in 1902 and possibly before that. Patrick Henry McCall was a son of the late Henry and Mrs. Frances McCall and was born at old Clarksburg, Carroll County, November 3rd, 1856. The manner of his passing from life was this: He had been sick for some week and while he grew better, his condition remained precarious, so much that I am told he himself anticipated the possibility of going as he did. On Saturday he was able to take a car ride with his daughter, Miss Jessie, and Saturday night sat up until 9:00 o'clock talking to his next-door neighbor, Mayor W.R. Holland, after which he retired. At some time after midnight he evidently found it necessary to get up and sit in his chair at this bedside, which he did without awakening Mrs. McCall, and in his chair he was found dead by her at 1:35 Monday morning. There is a strong hope that he slipped out of life and into the Great Beyond without a struggle. Fifty-two years ago P.H. McCall was married to Miss Mollie Meals, daughter of the late Louis and Mrs. Martha Meals, of Carroll County, and of the eight children born to the union, two died young, Henry in January 1915, and George in September, 1922. The surviving four are Louis, of Memphis, Miss Jessie, at home, Allie Mae (Mrs. Edgar Yarbro) of Bruceton, and Martha (Mrs. J.H. McDonald ) of Memphis. Of his brothers, George T. died in Huntingdon in February 1922, and Federal Judge John E. died in Huntingdon in 1920, but lived in Memphis. One brother, J.C.R. McCall, a Nashville lawyer, survives. Of his sisters, both widows, Mrs. Callie Williams died in 1922, and Mrs. Jennie Scott died in 1927. One sister, Ella, (Mrs. Dr. J.B. Cox) of Huntingdon, survives, and she was the youngest of this entire family. Dr. McCall was broad and liberal in his religious views and I am told joined the Methodist Church at Clarksburg and never moved his membership. I have talked to him of morals, but both of us knew that our religious belief was strictly our own business, and I know that he had no use for the fighting preacher. The funeral service was held in the home at 10:30 Tuesday, Rev. Fleetwood Ball having charge of the service ably assisted by Elder Hampton, of Carroll County, a Primitive Baptist minister, and old friend Rev. G.W. Florence, the local pastor of the M.E. Church. The songs used were selections of the family and their rendition by friends of the deceased were indeed appropriate. The floral tributes were beautiful coming as tokens of love from relatives and friends. May his soul rest in peace.--W.V.Barry
