Paul was an avid photographer, accomplished director, occasional actor, and former mime (with Mime on Stage troupe). Preceded in death by his father, mother and brother.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to FUMC Dallas for the Paul Callihan Theater Scholarship Fund.


Paul was born in Kentucky but grew up in Ohio like the rest of us fabulous theatre people. He was one of the best bosses I ever had and a great friend. I was going to light his next show for him and was totally ready to create some art together. He was friends with my mentor, Paul Daum, and was always there with a helpful word. He was one of my best friends and will truly be missed.
