Joseph (Eddie) McNamara, Jr., 57, passed away at his home on May 20, 2021, after fighting a battle with cancer. Even though his life ended at a very young age, his heart left an everlasting impression on family and friends. Eddie was a PGA golfer and Instructor. He was also a shrewd salesman who did very well for himself. And he mentored others to do the same. He loved playing golf with his family, spending time with family and friends, and he was always excited to stay at our lake condo and go boating at the Lake of the Ozarks. He enjoyed music, creating his many unique play lists, and listening to music on our outdoor lanai overlooking a beautiful lake at our home in Nokomis, Florida. What really made Eddie smile was watching his favorite dog, our Hungarian Puli named Bodri, play at beautiful dog parks in the Sarasota, Florida area. Preceded in death by his parents Joseph E. and Doris J. McNamara, and his niece Kristina Brenton, Eddie is survived by his wife Kathy Zahony McNamara, daughter Laura McNamara (Alberto Juarez), sisters Suzanne E. (Ted) Niemann and Maureen A. (Anthony) Brenton, brother James P. McNamara (Patty Tanner), nieces Genevieve Niemann, Celeste Gobble, Angelica Niemann, Sara York, Katie Brenton, and Samantha Koom, nephews Dustin McNamara, William Brenton, Michael Tanner, and Michael Ponte, and numerous grand nieces and nephews. A graveside ceremony will be held beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 5, 2021, at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery, 9501 West 159th Street, Overland Park, KS, 66221, followed by an outdoor reception at his wife’s family home, 8255 West 172nd Terrace, Overland Park, KS, 66085.
