Daniel M. McNamee, 72, of Pacific, passed away on April 18, 2020, at his home on the farm, with his family by his side. Dan, the son of the late James McNamee and Glafrie nee Pfountz, was born on March 14, 1948 in Washington. He was a devout Catholic, and a lifetime parishioner at St. Bridget’s of Kildare. After graduating from Eureka High School in 1966 he joined the local 513 Operating Engineers. In 2010 he retired from the local 513 Operating Engineers. On June 17, 1967 Dan married his wife Margaret nee Leonhardt at St. Bridget’s Catholic Church. Dan was a passionate farmer, and used his time working and rebuilding the family farm. He pursued his dream of acquiring the original McNamee homestead that was first settled in the 1800’s. Dan will be known by many for his selflessness, patience, and honesty to his friends and family.

Dan is survived by his wife Margie McNamee of Pacific; children, Daniel M. McNamee Jr. of Pacific, Angel McNamee-Williams and husband Charlie of Pacific; grandchildren, Amanda McNamee Todahl and husband Kris of Pacific, and Codey McNamee Williams of Pacific; great-grandchildren, Lana Todahl, Paydin Todahl, and Daniel Joseph “DJ” Todahl, and Tatum Todahl; sister, Mary Louise Sappington and Carl of Sullivan; special sister-in-law, Judy; and many other relatives and friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents, James and Glafrie McNamee; and siblings, James Owen McNamee, Joseph F. McNamee, Sarah Ann “McNamee” Faszold, John P. McNamee.

A private mass will be held at St. Bridget’s of Kildare Catholic Church in Pacific, and the burial will follow at Rock Church Cemetery. A public graveside service will be held at a later date with a luncheon. Memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society.
