Jim is survived by his wife Dolores Lucille Haskin, whom he married on January 28, 1961, daughter Raynie Elizabeth Callahan (Anthony Farina), Tupper Lake, NY, and son James Eugene Callahan, Jr (Beth Greenberg), North Adams, MA.

He is also survived by three sisters: Kathleen Lucille Daniels, Maureen Augusta Paar, Patricia Ann Goodacre (Richard, Sr), and a brother-in-law Frederick Jay Haskin, III (Joan). He was Uncle Jim to eleven nieces and ten nephews, and many more great-nieces and great-nephews.
