Obituary of Lloyd MacIntyre, CD
Lloyd MacIntyre, age 72, of Pierrefonds, Quebec It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Lloyd MacIntyre at the Teresa Dellar palliative care residence on November 21, 2021. He is survived by his loving daughter Shelly, son-in-law Freddie; granddaughter Shaylin, and dear friend Tammy Wallace. Born on August 20, 1949, Lloyd grew up in Verdun, Quebec and was predeceased by his Mom Ellen and older brother Francis. Lloyd graduated from Verdun Catholic High School in 1968, where in his final year he was Student Council President. He spent most of his professional career with Canadian National Railways (CN) serving in many capacities over 34 Years. At his time of retirement in 2000, he was a Marketing Officer in the Risk Management, Damage Prevention and Freight Claims Services having worked in Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto and Mississauga. Lloyd’s fondest memories are of the many talented people that he worked with and remained friends with long after his retirement. Lloyd was a member of the Air Force Association, having started his membership with 313 Wing and moving to 394 Wing when he moved to the West Island. He had a lifelong passion for the Air Cadet movement having started out as a Cadet at 69 Verdun Squadron in 1963. When the Squadron closed in he transferred to 1 West Montreal Squadron where he was selected to attend Senior Leadership Course, earned his Pilot’s license, selected to represent Canada as one of the cadet ambassadors in the International Air Cadet Exchange program and in 1968 graduated as Canada Commander with the rank of Warrant Officer First Class. His retirement from the Air Cadets was short, he started his adult Air Cadet Career as a Civilian Instructor with 1 West Montreal Squadron and in 1974 became an Officer with the Canadian Armed Forces – Cadet Instructor List. In 1986 he was awarded the Canadian Forces Decoration Medal. He served in many capacities at the Squadron ending his time at 1 West Montreal Squadron as Commanding Officer. He went on to serve at 588 Canadair Squadron as Deputy Commanding Officer and 796 LaSalle Legion Squadron as Commanding Officer before retiring from the Canadian Armed Forces at the rank of Captain in 1991. As Lloyd would tell you, the Air Cadet Movement doesn’t leave your blood once you get involved. After retiring as an officer, he went on to have a lifelong volunteer experience with the Air Cadet League of Canada. Starting in 1991 with the Squadron Sponsoring Committee of 540 Golden Hawk Squadron in Oakville, Ontario. On his return to Montreal in 1996 he joined the Air Cadet League of Canada, Quebec and Ottawa Valley Provincial Committee serving in many capacities at the Regional, Provincial and National Level of the Air Cadet League. He was a founding member of 100 Laval Squadron. While all of these represent his roles during his Air Cadet League experience they don’t represent the impact that he had on hundreds if not thousands of Air Cadets and Volunteers throughout his 60 year involvement. He mentored and coached young cadets applying for courses and major awards, assisted new volunteers joining the Air Cadet League, volunteered at many cadet activities and could always be counted on to show up, participate and have a good time throughout. It is why so many have fond memories of him and their experience with him. He truly made a difference in the lives of those around him. His accomplishments are numerous but most notably, he was the Air Cadet League of Canada 2014 Director or the Year, Air Cadet League National Governor, Chair of the International Air Cadet Exchange (IACE) Committee, and Air Cadet League IACE Escort to the UK. He was very humbled by the many awards that he received throughout his Air Cadet League (ACL) experience. Most notably the ACL National Director of the Year, Canadian Forces Citation; Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal; ACL National Certificate of Merit for Meritorious Service the Royal Canadian Air Cadets; and most recently The Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers – presented by the Office of the Governor General in recognition of exceptional volunteer achievements and contributions to their community, in Canada and abroad. Of all of the awards and recognition that Lloyd received what he was most proud of was being a Dad to his daughter Shelly and a Grandpa to his granddaughter Shaylin. They provided so much joy to his last years. Lloyd will be deeply missed. He would always make himself available if the need ever arose and has helped many over the years get through difficult times. He could always be relied on to tell a corny joke, repeatedly, until he got the laugh he was searching for or at least a groan. There will be a huge whole left in the hearts of many with his passing. The family wishes to thank the Lakeshore Hospital 3rd Floor West Wing staff; the Teresa Daller Palliative Care team; and Patricia his caregiver for their kind and attentive care in his last days The family also extends deep gratitude to Valerie Woods and Todd Wirchnianskyi for taking Lloyd under their wings throughout Covid and for recognizing the need to take him to the hospital and for being there with Tammy in his final moments; Miyuki Matsushita for being there in his final days and staying with him in what would be his final night; Martin Grechan, Alyssa Corey, Joe and Kendra Monachino, who spent time with him in palliative care. To his special friend Leo Grandy, who still could make him laugh in the many calls that they shared in those final days and to the many friends who visited or called him throughout his short time in the hospital.
