The following is the obituary for Kean University student William "Billy" McCaw who died in New Brunswick. It was written by his family and distributed by the Hillsborough Funeral Home. 

Billy McCaw, 22, of Gallatin, Tennessee and formerly of Hillsborough went to rest in the arms of his Heavenly Father on February 15, 2014.

He was born on December 19, 1991 to Bob and Mary McCaw in Somerville, NJ.
Billy was a 2010 graduate of Station Camp High School in Gallatin, TN where he was named to the Tennessee All State Soccer Team his senior year and was a captain for the team during both of his years there. An avid sports fan, in particular a Rutgers fan, he was enrolled at the time of his passing at Kean University in Union, NJ and maintained a strong presence in the Rutgers community where he had previously been a student.
