Kasey L. Callwood

Born here in our beautiful US Virgin Islands, Kasey Lamar Callwood entered the world at exactly 12:34 AM on January 31, 1990, to Louwesina Alcindor and Karl Callwood. It was evident even then that Kasey would be quite the handful, constantly moving and wanting to explore every inch of his new world.

Kasey L. Callwood attended Tutu Headstart from the age of two to the age of five. He then attended Kirwan Terrence Elementary School from 1995 to 2005, Addelita Cancryn Junior High School from 2005 to 2007, and Charlotte Amalie High School in 2007. In 2009, Kasey successfully acquired his General Equivalency Diploma.

Moving onward and upward, Kasey L. Callwood, driven to realize his full potential, enlisted in the National Guard on July 6, 2012, which he knew was not Mommy‘s first choice, firmly stating to Louwesina Alcindor, “Liz, don’t say nothing. I don’t want to hear it.” His areas of specialty were construction, masonry, and heavy construction equipment operations. As expected, Kasey excelled admirably. He was honorably discharged from active duty on January 8, 2017, as Specialist Kasey L. Callwood. Today we remember Kasey as Firefighter/Emergency Medical Rescue Officer Kasey L. Callwood of Lima Company and member of the Virgin Islands Fire Squad Class of 2019, Squad B. Having earned his National EMS Certification, Kasey was now anticipating yet another venture toward excellence with his next goal to become an emergency medical technician.

Louwesina Alcindor, Karl Callwood, Annakiya Hatchett, loved ones, friends, brethren, and peers, please be reassured, be validated, be truly comforted in knowing that God gave you someone, gave us all someone, but just for a moment in time. He was, and is in Spirit, a tremendous, uniquely empowering beam of light, driven with ambition, gifted, disciplined, and benevolently dedicated to human service and realizing your fullest potential.
