MACINTYRE – James (Jim) Francis

April 1, 1964 – March 10, 2010

Jim MacIntyre of Calgary passed away on Wednesday, March 10 2010 in his home at the age of forty-five years. Born in Antigonish, he is the son of Lynn and Jack MacIntyre. He is survived by daughters MacKenzie and Cameron and by his friend Denise McIntyre. He was a devoted father and his greatest achievement was being part of his children’s lives. The fifth of ten children, Jim was a proud Antigonisher and Nova Scotian with friends from one end of the country to the other. He was a meticulous journeyman carpenter who loved the trade so much that he was always doing something for friends and family on weekends. Jim was full of the devil, and he touched the lives of everybody he met. We don’t think he’ll ever know just how much we love him or how much we will miss him. You are in our hearts Jim-Bob, and we’ll proudly carry you around with us . . . you live on with us, and we will pass on and share those memories so that you will live on for your children and for all of the people you cared about.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Jim MacIntyre, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, (14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E.) on Monday, March 15 , 2010 at 2:00 p.m. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

    To the MacIntyres & Denise and children…I was saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. I have been thinking of him a lot these past few days and every thought leaves me smiling as he was such a kind and truly genuinely nice guy. My thoughts of him take me to “Mrs Mac’s” paved driveway to ride my trike with him and Phonse, seeing him in school each day where he always made me feel like someone who counted as he would give a hello with that captivating smile of his that really was the window to his heart. Whenever he “cut” through our backyard he always had time to chat with Mrs Lukeman and was careful to walk under the laundry!! Jim took pity on my need for an escort and took me to my graduation dance at X…..that was a long time ago but I remember how much fun he made it….his time here was short but his light shines on in his children and in the beautiful memories he left us with. My deepest sympathies to you all.

    My many memories of Jim were from hanging around the Macintyre house with what seemed like hundreds of other kids, hearing Lynn yell out his name and he always arrived with a big grin! Such a nice guy who will be very much missed by a family full of love. My thoughts are with you all.
    Jan, keep all your memories of Jim close to your heart.

    Love, Mary

    Hi everyone,

    I just wanted to express my absolute sadness at hearing of Jimmy’s passing.
    We were in class together since grade primary and what a rascal he was 🙂 He made class
    much more interesting year after year!

    I have in my mind’s eye a picture of him with Mr Ralph MacIntosh, Joey MacFarland and Paul Aubrecht on our big road
    trip to Louisbourg. Just a bunch of boys hamming it up for the camera….and Mr MacIntosh
    grinning away.
    That is my special memory that I remember today…

    Hugs and kisses to his girls….I wish I was there to do it in person.
    He was a great guy and will be missed by so so many from home and across the country.

    My sincerest condolences…

    Dorinda MacIsaac

    Deepest sympathies to the MacIntyre family. I considered Jim a good friend over the years from knowing him in jr. high and years beyond high school. He was always a true cool cat and had that friendly way and permanent smile. I’m sure he was a perfect ambassador for Antigonish up in Calgary. A great guy and a terrible loss.

    Condolences to the MacIntyre family, Sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. I have memories of Jim coming over the hill, from the Heights, heading for his grand mothers, (Mrs Mac).

    We moved in by Jim shortly after starting a family. The wonderful hardwood hallway of our place was actually built by Jim.

    We’ve been kept so busy by our baby, the first I ever knew of Jim being gone was encountering Denise by his house and hearing the news from her.

    Jim, you should still be with us. Condolences to you all 🙁
