With a successful career in retail management spanning 44 years and 12 states, Bill Callis looked forward to retirement. That lasted 8 years. For this hardworking people person, he needed more. A casual conversation from a manager at Rose Lawn brought him out of retirement in 2012 and into a new challenge in his life. His previous retail & management experience provided the groundwork for his position as a funeral assistant. Much of his work at Rose Lawn is "behind the scenes" such as office duties, maintaining the fleet, transporting family's loved ones, and assisting during funeral services.
A previous widower, Bill is now married to Elaine, his wife of 10 years. They are active members of Gateway Church of Christ, and together they enjoy being with his children and grandchildren and travel when work allows. He is also an avid Coca-Cola collector.
Bill is proud to be part of the professional team at Rose Lawn where the main goal is to professionally execute families' wishes.
