Edward Hugh McNamara

September 7, 1968 — August 8, 2023

Glen Burnie

Edward Hugh McNamara, known to his friends and loved ones as Ed, passed away on August 8, 2023, at the age of 54. He was born on September 7, 1968, in Philadelphia, PA to the late William J. and Mary L. McNamara. Ed was a loving husband, a devoted brother, dear uncle and an esteemed Senior Systems Engineer for Exelon Corporation.

In his leisure time, Ed found solace in nature. He had a deep appreciation for the outdoors and enjoyed fishing, crabbing, boating, and hunting. Music was another passion that deeply resonated with Ed. He was skilled in playing the drums and often found comfort in creating rhythms that reflected various emotions. Whether performing alone or jamming with friends and family members at gatherings, Ed's drumming talent never failed to impress those fortunate enough to witness it.

Ed leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories. He is survived by his beloved wife, Linda F. McNamara; and his brothers, William "Bill" J. McNamara, III (Vicki), Sean P. McNamara (Andrea), Brian V. McNamara (Nora) and Patrick K. McNamara (Caroline). He is also survived by many dear nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews, friends, and colleagues who will forever hold him in their hearts.

The services to honor Ed's life will be held at Singleton Funeral and Cremation Services PA in Glen Burnie, MD. Visitation will take place on Friday, August 18, 2023, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM and again from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The funeral service will be held on Saturday, August 19, 2023, starting at 10:00 AM in the funeral home chapel, followed by the burial at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens.

During this time of grief, let us remember Ed for the incredible person he was - talented, compassionate, and full of life. His memory will forever remain a source of comfort and inspiration to all who were fortunate enough to have known him.

As we bid farewell to Ed, let us hold onto the memories we shared and celebrate the impact he made in our lives.
