Funeral Ed McNamara & Rob's College

Dear friends 
With deep regrets, I would like to inform caring people about the unfortunate and untimely departure of one of the kindest and helping person I have ever met.  

Edward McNamara October 29, 1959 ~ September 8, 2017 (age 57)

Edward McNamara’s sudden death was an unfortunate void in supporting his son.  Ed leaves behind his only son Robert McNamara just turned 20 years old.  Anyone that knew Ed knows he was the kind stranger that would help out everyone in life no matter who you are, maybe simply a stranger he just met at a restaurant in passing or a person in distress.  Ed would strike up a conversation with anyone and reach out to help others in need.  Ed suffered with diabetes in the last couple years and ended with heart failure. Ed's only goal was to raise Robert and support him to finish his education.

Ed’s son Robert has been attending college full time.  Ed has been the only financial supporter for Robert to continue to stay in school to ultimately complete his education to get his degree.  Robert has been left with a lot of responsibilities including funeral expenses on top of trying to attend college full time and now responsible for Ed’s personal affairs.  

We look to all the friends and kind-hearted people to help with any support possible. Caring and giving always pays back in this lifetime and we would like to thank you all for the support in these trying times for Robert.

Best regards and God bless each and every one of you.
