Thomas Patrick Anthony (Tony) McNamara

March 16, 1940 – September 13, 2010

Adventurer, World Traveler, Free Spirit

Husband, Father, Brother, Grandfather

Tony is on his last journey. After a lifetime of interesting places and people, and a brief final battle with cancer, he died peacefully and pain free at 11:00 pm, September 13th in Victoria, B.C.

He leaves me inspired by his sense of fun and his spirit of adventure.

He leaves me with the memory of his love.

He did it HIS way.

Tony is survived by his loving wife Helen in Victoria, daughter Lisa (Paul) Phillips of Winnipeg, brother Greg (Anne) in Regina, several stepchildren and 8 grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, Tony would ask you to make a donation to the BC Cancer Foundation by supporting our friend Anna in her “Ride to Conquer Cancer” fund raiser.

Please email Helen at donations

fortony@shaw.ca to get the link to make a tax deductible donation.

There will be no service, at Tony’s request.
