Steve McNamara’s Family
Steven R. McNamara was born on April 19, 1961, and hails from Florida. Steve and his sisters, Cynthia, Jennifer, and Vivien, have Australian and Swiss ancestry from their parents, Russell McNamara and Margrith Lübke.
Steve’s father, aka Russ McNamara, hailed from Brisbane, Australia. Driven by wanderlust, Russ began his career in construction in Canada, then headed to California, New Orleans, Florida, and later Nassau, Bahamas.
Lübke, Steve’s mother, traveled from her native Zurich to New York City when she was 21, to fulfill her dream of living and working in the Big Apple. However, after only a few months in NYC, she moved to Nassau.
