John Carey McIntyre died peacefully at home with Terri, the love of his life, by his side, April 22, 2012, in Clearwater, B.C. after a long illness.
Survived by his wife, Terri; his son, Kale (Darlene); Terri’s children, Craig (Alysha), Angelene (Mike) and Deanna (Ed) and seven grandchildren; and by his brother, Douglas (Kimberly), and his sister, Sheila (Sanda).
Born 1955 in Montreal to the late Patricia and Donald McIntyre. His formal schooling was in Toronto and Fergus, Ontario, but he was largely self-taught through observation, conversation, reading and methodical thinking through of how things work. He had a huge depth and range of knowledge about mountain geology, forestry, motors, ecology, B.C. history, house construction, and trail clearing and riding.
He loved the mountains, horses, fishing, cooking, Adams Lake and boating, storytelling, and getting a good bargain. Mostly he loved his family, and he loved doing anything and everything side by side with Terri.
He was kind, thoughtful, generous, funny, and incredibly resourceful.
He is greatly missed.
