Please Support Your Community News Site's COVID Coverage

The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation. If you believe local reporting is important and you're able to lend support during this pandemic, click here for info on making a tax-deductible donation.

Bill McCaul, 80, of East Haven passed away April 26 at Yale-New Haven Hospital from complications of COVID-19. He was born July 27, 1939, in New Haven to William McCaul, Sr., and Mary Heller McCaul.

Bill graduated from East Haven High School in 1957. Bill served six years in the Connecticut National Guard. He was predeceased by his daughter Sharon McCaul and leaves his son Brian and Brian's mother Janet McCaul of East Haven.

Bill was known by many in town through the stores he started, Dairy Mart on Hemingway Avenue in 1968 and Deli Mart on Gerrish Avenue in 1969. He retired early due to health issues but continued to stop daily at the Gerrish store, greeting longtime customers.

The family wishes to express heartfelt thanks for the outstanding care he received for the past year at Branford Hill Health Care.

New Haven Funeral Service is in charge of arrangements. A graveside service will be held at the East Lawn Cemetary at the convenience of the family. A donation may be made in remembrance of Bill to a charity of one's choice.
