Brian J. McNamara, 60
He was born in Attleboro and raised in Shrewsbury, son of the late James P. McNamara Sr. and Janice (Burchard) McNamara. He graduated from Shrewsbury High School in 1971 and received his Bachelors of Arts degree from Bridgewater State College in 1975.
Brian had worked in the call center at the corporate offices of Staples Inc. for several years. Previously, he worked as a land surveyor.
He was a very fun loving person; always a smile on his face and he enjoyed a good laugh. He truly loved his family and enjoyed being part of their lives. Although he had no children, he considered his nieces and nephews as his own. He loved to read. To know him was to be in awe of his intelligence. He seemed to know a lot about everything.
Brian’s true passion was the theater, and, through the years, he performed in many popular productions at local theaters. He was currently considering two upcoming plays.
He leaves his two sisters, Judi Scott and her husband Stephen and Beth Wahlstrom and her husband John, all of Shrewsbury; six nieces and nephews that he treated like his own children, Tara Horluk, Colleen Hebert, Crystal McNamara, John Wahlstrom, Kelly Scott, and Christopher Scott; two grandnephews, Seamus and Kilan; and one grandniece, Jaymee. He was predeceased by his brother, James P. McNamara Jr.
