John, or “Macky” as he was known to many, was born in Boston on February 28, 1941 to John A. McIntyre Sr. and Anna (Jackson) McIntyre. He graduated from Boston Tech where he was captain of the hockey team. He joined the US Army and served overseas in Germany during peacetime. He then became a Land Surveyor with Massport. He was a member of East Boston Yacht Club. He adored his two grandchildren fondly referring to Julia as “Babe” and Jack as his “protege”, however always reminding the family he was “the Original Jack”. He was always the first person to be there for someone in need, lending a helping hand to anyone, at anytime. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
Services will conclude with John’s entombment at Holy Cross Community Mausoleum in Malden.
