In Memory of Robert McNamara

We are shocked and saddened to hear about the sudden passing of our friend Robert McNamara. His charming personality, playful humor, and uplifting presence allowed “Bobby Mac” to light up any room or kitchen he walked into.

His role as Vice Chairman on our board for the Albany Chefs’ Food and Wine Festival unquestionably made the festival what it is today, and we will all miss him dearly.

We send our deepest condolences to Bobby’s family and friends.
