Justin McCall, 28, of Nebraska City, died July 15, 2013 in Lincoln as the result of an auto accident. Matthew Justin McCall was born on Jan. 30, 1985 in Charleston, S.C., to William R. and Sheri M. (Spidell) McCall. He attended school at Auburn High School in Auburn, graduating with the Class of 2003.
Justin worked second shift at American Meter in Nebraska City and had been employed there for the last three years.
Justin’s biggest passions were music, philosophy, sports (particularly basketball) and his entire family, whether blood related or those he met along the way. Justin was a talented musician and highly educated philosopher. He was working tirelessly to save his money so that he could attend audio engineering school in Chicago. His plans were to write and record music to share his life and views with the rest of the world, whether you agreed with him or not. His music, philosophies, love and passion for life did indeed touch so many.
