Obituary of Brant J. Callahan

Brant James Callahan died very unexpectedly and tragically on May 10, 2017 in Nevada County. He was born May 6, 1964 in San Francisco. From an early age, digital technology fascinated Brant and he worked for several technical firms, including Telestream in Nevada City. He played bass guitar and keyboards with musical friends and local bands. An avid gold miner, Brant owned and worked several claims in the Sierra Nevada.

He is mourned by his mother, Karen Callahan; brother Neal Callahan; sisters Mara (Daniel) Wagner and Rose (Kelly Bray) Callahan; sister-in-law Kelly Cole; and niece Lilianne Callahan. He was preceded in death by his father, William Callahan.

In May, friends and family gathered at Broadfork Farm in Peardale to celebrate Brant’s life.
