Local surfer and ocean warrior, William Mason Caldwell, 58, passed away peacefully on July 20, 2018 into a world of endless sun and surf surrounded by his loved ones.

His love of the ocean took him around the world surfing, fishing and enjoying the sun with his friends and family.
Friends and family will be received at Thompson Memorial Home , 310 Broad St Red Bank , NJ on Tuesday July 24, 2018 from 5 to 8 PM. , with a service at 7:30pm . A surfer’s paddle out in his honor will take place in September. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Clean Ocean Action and Surfrider Foundation.
