I just wanted to offer my deepest heart felt condolences to Pauline and the entire Mcintyre family on Bill's passing. I would always go to 9:30 Mass to hear the Choir and experience the wonderful services. I always saw Bill there ushering and being so helpful in many ways to all of the people that came thru those doors. He always had a smile on his face and that said to me he just loved people. One day after Mass, I approached Bill and asked him if there any openings for an Usher. This was right before Father Rozman left on his new assignment. He was so welcoming, warm, courteous, helpful, engaging, pleasant, respectful and assured me he would find out. He took all my information and got back to me within 2 days. I became an Usher and Bill trained me on my first day which was Easter Sunday, and the Bishop was celebrating the Mass. From my talks with Bill previous to that he filled me in on every detail, showed me where everything went and I felt completely comfortable being the Head Usher at that mass and all the rest of the Masses, and when Bill was there when I was Ushering, which he almost always was, he offered to help in any way and gave me the respect of being the Head Usher. He was a gentleman, a friend, and I am going to miss him dearly. May your soul Rest in Peace Bill and my God hold you in the palms of his hands.

I was so fortunate to have grown up in the same neighborhood where Bill McIntyre and his family lived. In addition to being my dad’s best friend, Bill was a larger than life personality in the Lincoln Circle neighborhood, often entertaining at his home and always amusing everyone with his stories and jokes. He was a wonderfully kind and generous man and he will be missed by so many down here and celebrated and welcomed home by so many in heaven. Keeping Pauline, Tom, Marge, Bob, and Dan and all of this family in our prayers.
