Obituary of Brian McIntyre

It is with great sadness that the family of Donald Brian McIntyre announce his passing which occurred on Friday, May 17, 2024, at the Saint John Regional Hospital in Saint John, N.B. Born in Saint John, N.B. on January 26, 1943, he was the son of the late Donald and Fran (MacDonald) McIntyre. 


Brian grew up on Edith Avenue with his two brothers and baby sister. He taught himself how to cut hair and quickly became the neighborhood travelling barber, cutting all the children’s hair, and eventually cutting men’s hair. Brian was given a broken-down motorcycle that had no headlight at 14 and he fixed it up. He learned how to fix motorcycles, and by the time he was 17 he was repairing motorcycles for his friends. Brian graduated from the Industrial program at Simonds High School in 1961 and was voted Grad Class President. He went straight to work as a draftsman at the Shipyard, and four years later, married Carol on April 17, 1965. A job opportunity took them to Sarnia, Ontario for 18 months, but they returned to Saint John for a job at McAvity Crane before leaving to take a job at the Irving Oil Refinery. In 1976 they moved to their famous red house in St. Martins. After 19 years at the Refinery, Brian returned to NBCC where he graduated from the Machinist courseHe then went on to become self-employed. 


Uncle Brian or Uncle Bunky, as he was often called, was well known in the village of St Martins where he was known as a jack of all trades. He could cut your hair, mow your grass and if you needed something welded or fabricated, he was your guyHe was often seen at the Harbour for Social Hour.  

As a youth Brian spent a lot of time with his Grandfather at his camp at 7 Mile LakeLater in life Brian acquired his own camp on 7 Mile Lake where he spent a lot of time working on the property and his many projects. 


Brian was a character – a man who had a great sense of humor who left an impression on everyone he met. He will be sorely missed.  

Brian is survived by his children: Bruce McIntyre (Kelly) of Hampton, N.B., Scott McIntyre (Sussie) of Middle Sackville, N.S., and Lori Connors of Nackawic, N.B; grandchildren: Cody, Taylor, Melissa, Ricky, Zoey and Michael; great granddaughter Sadie; brothers Bill McIntyre of British Columbia and Rick McIntyre of Fredericton, N.B; sister Mary Jane Tupper of Yarmouth, N.S; as well as several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Brian was predeceased by his loving wife Carol McIntyre (Brooks). 


The family would like to send out a special thank you to Irene Whitney, Billy Nelson and Wayne Jackson who were instrumental in helping Brian after his stroke.
