  • Joe McNamara was my father Patrick McNamara's brother and my uncle. I never met him but my sister Mary has the photo of him from the airforce. I know he was greatly missed by his many brothers and sisters. RIP Joe, if I ever get to Egypt, I will seek out where you have been lain to rest. Suzanne McNamara
