Thomas R. McNamee, 63, of Foxboro and formerly of Hull, passed away on October 17 after a lengthy battle with cancer. He is survived by his brothers Bob, Bill, Rick and Frank, his sisters Keri McNamee and Dyanne Small, and his soul mate and sole companion Donna Lee Salhaney. He was predeceased by his sister Sharon McNamee and his parents Robert G and Rita D McNamee. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles, including his cousin Diane and aunt Francine Colwell, who loved him dearly.
Tom lived his life with a very kind and generous heart. He would truly do anything for anyone, and he found it literally impossible to say “no” to anyone who may have needed his help. Tom had a deep passion for horse racing, and if you believed him, he was an expert handicapper when it came to picking and betting on horses. His work experience consisted largely in two main areas. He washed windows and he drove delivery vehicles for coffee and flower distributors.
Tom took pride in “being there” for his family and he was always striving to be the voice of reason in the family. When he got his cancer diagnosis in December of 2019, he took it hard, naturally. He decided to take on his misfortune, head on, and fought hard for almost two years. His strength and determination served as an inspiration to all of his closest friends and family. He was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew him.
Memorial and burial services will be private. If you are so moved, please consider making a donation in his memory and his name to the Jimmy Fund.
