It is with a heavy heart to announce that Justin McNamee passed away on April 18, 2014.  Mr McNamee was on the Texas Board of Professional Geoscientists.  He was appointed by Governor Perry in 2010 to a 6 year term in a position reserved for the public (someone who is not a Licensed Geoscientist).   Mr. McNamee was born on July 31, 1958 in Dallas, Texas.  He attended and received his Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Texas at Arlington.  Mr. McNamee was a community leader who gave to the community his time to numerous charitable and civic groups.

I had the pleasure of meeting him when he was first appointed in 2010.  He was a bright and interesting person who was keenly interested in what geoscientist do.  He knew and understood the role that Licensed Geoscientist play in this state and was proud to add his voice to the Board.  He was always cheerful despite the long meetings.  I appreciated his view and efforts with the Board and his voice will be missed.

Mr. McNamee is survived by his wife and his 2 children.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Justin Lynn McNameeScholarship Fund benefitting the children and youth ministries at Highland Oaks Church of Christ. Highland Oaks Church of Christ, 10805 Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas, TX 75238.
