Died April 23rd , 2023 – Calgary, Alberta
It is with great sadness that the family of James Alexander MacIntyre of Calgary, Alberta announce his passing on April 23rd , 2023 at the age of 74 years.
James was born in Drumheller on February 25th , 1949, and lived there for 44 years. Through these years he was an active member of the community, owning and operating a market garden and greenhouse. As James grew older, he made a decision to branch out into a career in construction. One of his achievements was earning a Civil Engineering diploma at SAIT. This took him to different areas of Canada including Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and his home province of Alberta. During his career
he worked on several challenging and diverse projects, such as hydro dams, oil and gas refineries, fertilizer production plants, and irrigation supply facilities. Though his life was enriched through his career, he also enjoyed his time with his family.
James was a father to Deanna, Orin (Fabiola), and Clarke (Jessica), as well as a grandfather to Bailey and Nichelle (Deanna), Eric and Mercedes (Orin), Mavie and Nixa (Clarke). He was fond of the time he spent with every one of them and especially cherished moments spent around the holidays.
James leaves behind memories of warmth and good conversation for those that had the
pleasure of knowing him.
Donation on James’ behalf can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.
A Celebration of Life will be arranged in the near future.
