Donald J. Caldwell, 63, BGE dispatcher, court clerk

Donald J. Caldwell, retired Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. dispatcher and former court clerk, died Thursday of cancer at his home in Edgemere. He was 63.

Mr. Caldwell, who retired from the utility's Woodlawn operating headquarters in 1992 after a 41-year career with BGE, also worked evenings in the early 1970s as a Baltimore County Circuit Court clerk and was known as "Judge" by his BGE peers.

Mr. Caldwell was born and raised in the city's old 10th Ward and was a graduate of city schools. He served with the Army's 89th Tank Battalion during the Korean War and received the Bronze Star, National Defense Medal, the United Nations Medal and the Good Conduct Medal. He was discharged with the rank of sergeant.

Fiercely proud of his Irish ancestry, Mr. Caldwell enjoyed attending ethnic festivals, vacationing with family and friends, and playing football and pool on autumn weekends.

He was a member of St. John's Oldtimers, Wells-McComas VFW Post No.2678 and John S. Murphy American Legion Post No.1730.

In 1956, he and Patricia Miller were married. She died in 1983.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. tomorrow at St. Luke Roman Catholic Church, 7517 North Point Road, Edgemere, where he was a communicant.

He is survived by two sons, Timothy J. Caldwell of Edgemere and Michael A. Caldwell of Delta, Pa.; a daughter, Danielle Goodman of Reisterstown; his mother, Margaret Caldwell of Baltimore; two sisters, Eileen Raymond of Baltimore and Patricia Pietrowski of White Marsh; and seven grandchildren.
