RIP Adam Callahan Can't Post

Adam Callahan, local Skydive San Diego legend, pilot , instructor and skydiver passed away at his home Saturday night. Adam has been jumping in San Deigo since he was 18. He just celebrated his 40th birthday together with his good friends.

Adam's Family would like to invite you all to join in an amazing celebration to honor the life of a genuine Son, Father and Friend.

Those who have shared time with Adam know him for his free spirit, authenticity, kindness and endless humor. It is with that spirit that we will all gather at Skydive San Diego, Adams home since he was 18.

Tandem operations will end early Sunday evening giving us all the opportunity to gather in the landing area in tribute as we watch his parents do a flyby and symbolic release of his ashes.

Immediately following we will have food, drinks and share stories, Callahan Style!

Adam Callahan.......
So many great memories of you, brother. Fly free.


A total "natural" in the air - he could fly _anything_. Should have been born with wings.

See you all on Sunday.

I will see you guys on Sunday. Very sad to hear. Strange, I remember being on a load with Adam, Dan and John O. A long time ago.

That was a class-act send-off for Adam.

Kudos to Bonnie and Buzz and the rest of the Skydive SD crowd for honoring to the man like you did, and for reminding the rest of us, of why we loved him so much.

Forever young...Adam Callahan.
