Obituary of Brian McIntyre, Glace Bay
It is with deep sadness and broken hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Brian McIntyre, age 77 on Friday, June 24, 2022, at the An Cala Palliative Care Unit of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.
Born in Glace Bay, on March 19, 1945, Brian was the son of the late Ignatius “Iggie” and Mary (Francis) McIntyre.
There was nothing Brian liked better than an interesting conversation and many debates with friends; talking sports especially his beloved Montreal Canadians and his New York Yankees. Brian was an active hockey player, soft ball player and enjoyed volunteering at the Glace Bay Food Bank and spending time chasing the winning numbers of Lotto 649, scratch tickets and the excitement of winning big at poker machines.
He was once employed and enjoyed his work at the “Famous” Iggies Tavern.
Brian is survived by his son Ricky (Mary Lynn), daughter Susan (Neil) and grandchildren, Andrew, Keegan, Taylor, Nicholas and Morgan.
He is also survived by brothers Gerald (Ruth), Michael “Red Mick”, Stewart (Ann Marie) and his sister Lima (Kevin) and several nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, Brian was predeceased by his wife Anne Louise (MacDonald) McIntyre, son Stephen, sisters Eileen, Bernice, Ignace; brothers Billy, John and Joe.
Brian will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
