Obituary for Douglas "Smoke" Calley

Douglas Ray Calley, 68, passed away September 4th of cancer at the New Homestead in Guthrie Center, Iowa.  His Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be at Bowman Chapel on Saturday, September 7th.

Doug was born June 1, 1951, to Rex Clayton and Georgene Marie (Hammond) Calley in Jefferson, Iowa.   He graduated from Guthrie Center High School and worked for various businesses around the Guthrie Center area.  One of his “best jobs” was driving a school bus for Guthrie Center School District for 26 years. He had so many great stories about the students.  Many of the care-takers at the hospital and nursing home had stories to relate about him also. His other great passion was the Guthrie Center Fire Department which he served for 40 years.

Doug is survived by his brothers David (Cathy) of Springfield, MO, and Todd of Ozark, MO, stepbrothers, Ed Christensen (Kathi) of Greenfield, IA and Bob (Julie) Christensen of Guthrie Center, IA,  aunt, nephews, niece, cousins, and many relatives and friends. Doug was preceded in death by his parents, stepmother, brother, and stepbrother.

In Lieu of Flowers, memorials may be made to the Guthrie Center Fire Department.
