Many thanks Oldohiohome and Shelleyesq, for your help.

I wasn't sure if he returned to Toronto or not.  I do have information of his early time in Canada. 

His time in WW1 asa a Chaplain affected him a lot so I'm not surprised as to the news report.

I don't know about another relationship so could be right but have no information after 1933.  I do know that Mary did in fact die in 1984.

Also thank you Sandra, he could have died between these dates but I can't be sure.

Canadian Immigration Service

July 31, 1935
travelling on the SS Yarmouth
admitted to Canada

John Joseph Callan, age 45, divorced

had been a chaplain during the war, 78th? Brigade ...,  retired from clergy, now au cond

On this sheet, there's something written by John's name that I can't really read, but part of it looks like "on O.T. 632648."  I don't know much about Canadian immigration, but maybe that means something?
