13 years today. We still haven't forgotten you. We had a nice grave side ceremony at noon. Many left "remembrance stones" on top of your stone to let you know we were there. Keep watching our six and guide us with your light. #121

Dennis...YOU WERE a gifted artist! A talented musician (I know you still have my YAMAHA guitar somewhere!). You were an avid reader, and, I cherished those moments we would spend together on your steps with Hogan, just talking!! You could recite any George Carlin gig like I could. When you bought me tickets to see George Carlin, I almost had a coronary on my porch...WHAT A PERFECT and FINE thing to do! I love your family (still) Bunny, Terry, Jimmy, Brian, Nancy, etc... Oh God, how I miss you!

Hey Uncle Dennis. It's hard to believe that its been a little more than 10 years. I think about you each and every day, and always think to myself how you would have changed what goes on if you were still here. You were my favorite uncle from as long as I can remember, and forever will be. You were everyones hero, and still are, and you remain my idol. I love and miss you uncle Dennis. Uncle Jimmy recently joined you up there, say Hi to him for me, and tell him I love him. You guys were the best, and will be together forever! I can't wait to see you guys again. I love you Uncle Dennis, miss you with all my heart, Love Dalton.

10 years Dennis. Wow, how time passes, I remember it like it was yesterday. Tonight before your memorial service the locker room gym is being dedicated to you. Some fine young officers who never got a chance to know you worked hard on remodeling it and getting all new equipment. It looks great and I know you would be proud. I see Diane from time to time at Wawa and she seems good. I can not believe how grown up your children are. You will never be forgotten.

During the week of October 3, 2011 a mother with a mentallly ill problematic adult son, who is an artist, came in and said that the only UD PD officer who could calm her son through his episodes was UD PD Officer Dennis McNamara. She felt the reason why Officer McNamara was so effective at dealing with people like her son was because Officer McNamara was an artist and an extremely intuitve human being. She missed Officer McNamara's presence, and his gift of relating to people.

Later in the same week, by chance I met Officer McNamara's wife who explained that her husband was also a talented musican. As I am an artist, musican, and Upper Darby Township Police Department Community Worker, I wish I could have met this outstanding Upper Darby Police Officer.

RIP UD Township PD Officer Dennis McNamara,
You are fondly remembered.

I knew Mac for a few years early in my AF career, and ran into him occasionally in the later years. Always with that engaging smile and always your friend no matter how long. I'll remember best our days exploring Monterey CA, and the times on its area beaches.

I'm shocked to see this page, but not surprised that Mac was willing to put his life on the line for his neighbors. I'm saddened to see he was called to make the sacrifice. Rest in Peace, FRIEND. You deserve the rest.
