Obituary of Albert Joseph McNamara
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Albert McNamara of Quispamsis, beloved husband of the late Anna Marie (Gaidamasciuk) McNamara, announces his death which occurred peacefully on Sunday, December 2, 2012, at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born in Lakewood, NB on September 9, 1926, he was the son of the late William Francis and Melina (Gaudreau) McNamara.
Albert was a Christian man, whose faith and religion were of utmost importance to him. He was an avid reader who especially took great comfort in the many hours he spent reading and studying the Bible. Albert’s kind and gentle nature was clear in the love and affection he showed towards all animals. He was an excellent dancer, who taught many of his nieces how to dance. Albert had a true love of the arts and especially enjoyed the theatre and classical music. He was also a storyteller, whose stories will live on forever in the hearts of his family and friends. He will be sadly missed.
Albert is survived by his chosen son, William Belding (Cathy Stoddard) of Quispamsis; foster son, Ron LeBouthillier of Saint John; sisters, Theresa Hughes of Fredericton and Irene Brown of Ottawa; several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by sisters, Florence Krumenacker and Agnes O’Connor and brothers, William, Edward, Daniel and Harold.
As per the family’s request, no visitation will be held. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Arrangements are entrusted to Kennebecasis Community Funeral Home, 152 Pettingill Road, Quispamsis, (506) 849-2119.
