Hugh Caldwell Jr.


Hugh Robison “Rob” Caldwell Jr. passed away on Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017.

He was born on April 24, 1956, in Greenwood, Miss. As a graduate of the University of Mississippi, some knew him as the biggest fan of Ole Miss football. As an avid whitewater kayaker, some knew him for his love of the river. To some he was Doctor, a healer when times were most difficult. To others he was Wing, a quick wit and a playful sense of humor. He was a husband, a father, and a friend to anyone he met. And, everyone knew him for his love and unfailing devotion to those around him — family, friends, and patients — all of whom are better for it.

He is preceded in death by his father, Hugh Robison Caldwell Sr.; sister, Elizabeth “Betsy” Caldwell; and grandparents, Walter and Lula Caldwell and Charlie and Betsy Abbott.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory his wife of 32 years, Georgia Caldwell; son, Hugh Robison “Robby” Caldwell III; his wife, Meghan; daughter, Hanna Burke, and her husband, Dylan; his mother, Mary Frances Caldwell; and a host of extended family members and friends, especially his family who were a part of the Parkridge East ER Group.

A Celebration of Life memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 22, 2017, at Companion Funeral Home, 2419 Georgetown Road N.W., Cleveland.

The family will receive friends prior to the service from 3 to 4 p.m.
