WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today made the following statement on the passing of former Alabama Congressman H.L. “Sonny” Callahan:


“I am saddened to hear of the passing of former Congressman Sonny Callahan.  He loved Alabama dearly, particularly his home town of Mobile.  Following his time in the Navy, Sonny was in the Alabama state legislature and later served in the U.S. Congress for 18 years.  When he retired, he was the dean of the Alabama House delegation.  Annette and I send our deepest condolences to his loved ones.”
