Newport News High School Class of 1950

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   We have still another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter tonight. Mickey McNamara ('50) has passed away in Newport News at the age of 77.


From Dale Parsons ('49) of VA - 07/22/07 - "Notice for Michael R. 'Mickey' McNamara":

Carol,

I believe this was one that no one sent in to you Mickey was from a large family and I know that most were NNHS graduates.. Mickey was a '50 graduate.

   Thank you so much for telling me about this, Dale.  I obviously missed it completely, and in fact, I never would have caught it.


From the Daily Press - 07/15/07:

MARGIE AND FAMILY,
I AM SO SORRY TO READ ABOUT MICKEY. I WILL NEVER FORGET WHEN I LIVED ON COLONY RD. IN NEWPORT NEWS, I CALLED THE WATERWORKS DEPARTMENT TO SEE ABOUT GETTING MY HOME HOOKED UP TO CITY SEWAGE. I HAPPENED TO GET MICKEY ON THE PHONE AT THAT TIME, AND WITHIN 2 WEEKS I WAS BEING HOOKED UP. I WILL NEVER FORGET THAT. I ALSO GRADUATED WITH MARGIE AND MICKEY. AGAIN I WISH TO OFFER MY CONDOLENCES AND PRAYERS TO THE FAMILY.
