Daniel Patrick McNamara

Dan McNamara, 49, from Apex, NC, originally from Howell, NJ, passed away on April 7, 2022.

Dan is survived by the love of his life for 22 ½ years, Mahrya, and their 4 children. The oldest is, Kaden, 10 and the triplets, Klane, Teegan, and Dalton, are 7. Dan loved animals, especially his St. Bernards, so naturally, the kids all love animals, too. He loved playing baseball with the kids, and passing on his love for the Mets to them. He also enjoyed playing outside with them, catching lizards and turtles, and taking them swimming.

Dan worked for years in the auto industry as a sales person. He later helped run the family business, The Cellar, in Fair Haven, NJ. Upon moving to NC, he worked as a restaurant manager and loved it.

He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Barbara Cremeans. Dan also left behind his loving sister, Donna Alfano, whom he loved dearly, and three brothers.

Dan’s laughter was contagious. He was larger than life and brought joy to so many.

    Dan was truly one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met! From his porta potty crimes of passion to pouring full beers in my lap while playing poker, he was always making people laugh. I still use his line, “what are you figurin’ you’re gunna ask for it.” My mom and Dan are waiting for us at the poker table above. Dan will always be loved and remembered.
