Obituary of Jamie McGaw

“A light that burns twice as bright, burns half as long.”  Jamie Abraham McGaw passed away unexpectedly on June 2, 2018. Jamie was a former Marine, an avid outdoorsman, and loved traveling on his motorcycle, which took him to various parts of the US with the wind at his back. Jamie loved his family and friends, and anyone who knew him would say he was witty, charismatic, and that his smile and laugh were infectious, and he lit up any room he walked into.  Jamie was loved greatly by his family and friends and will be sorely missed.  Jamie is survived by his two children, Victoria and Valerie McGaw; parents, Linda-Jo and William McGaw III.; his brother Joshua McGaw and his wife, Sarah, and Jamie’s niece and nephews, Krissana, Gabriel and Alexander McGaw; his grandfather, William McGaw; his aunt, Nancy McGaw; his aunt, Gabriella Ducharme and her husband, Maurice; his aunt, Rose Darby; his aunt, Michalina Eisenberg and her husband Alan along with his two cousins, Arianna and Aaron Eisenberg; and his aunt, Margaret Darby.   The family held a private service on June 8th at Mulryan Funeral Home in Glastonbury, and a private burial ceremony at Holy Cross Cemetery in Glastonbury, where Jaime was laid to rest with his grandmother, Ruth McGaw.  Jamie was a bright star whose flame will continue to shine even though he is no longer with us.  Be at peace, traveler, our love goes with you.
