John Edwin McIntire, 77, of Angola, loving husband, father, and grandfather, went to be with his Lord and Savior on January 11, 2019, while his family held his hands.
He was born July 13, 1941 in Richmond Indiana to the late Marion McIntire and Petra (Klute) McIntire. He was a 1959 graduate of Richmond High School and a 1963 graduate of Purdue University. He served his country honorably in the United States Army.
John married the love of his life Catherine (Doulgeris) McIntire.  They spent 37 years loving one another every day.   Among their favorite activities together was taking RV trips including tours of the Midwest, Southwest, and a journey to Alaska, with their favorite location being Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.
John had a career at Magnavox Corporation in Fort Wayne, retiring with over 31 years of dedicated service.
He enjoyed being outdoors on his John Deere tractor, walking with his wife and beloved dogs, visiting Pokagon State Park, and working in his wood shop crafting heirlooms. Greatest of all, John loved spending time creating memories with his family, especially his grandchildren who knew him as Pappap. They could be found helping him with yard work, building Legos, completing a puzzle, at the barbershop, or visiting McDonald’s.
He is survived by those who love and miss him most; his wife, Catherine; a son, Mark McIntire of Chicago, Illinois, a daughter, Anna (Daniel) Smith of Angola; four grandchildren, Jonah Smith, Isaiah Smith, Anaiah Smith, Clarah Smith all of Angola; and a sister, Jacki (Rich) Williams of Richmond, Indiana; and two nieces, Debbi Bushman and Sheri (Pete) Isenberg. He is preceded in death by a niece, Suzi Williams; and nephew in-law, Dave Bushman.
A private family service will be held in memory and burial will be at Circle Hill Cemetery in Angola.

I was shocked and saddened to read about John in the online version of the Herald Republican today. I am so sorry! He was such a patient, gentle and loving person and he adored all of you! I am praying that you will be comforted by the love of friends and family at this difficult time, as well as the assurance that you will see him again someday. Sending our love and hugs!

Dear Cathy and family,
Jim notified me recently that John was gone. I felt very sad about his passing and wanted you to know I embrace you with love and prayer at this time. You will never lose sight of the good times and be comforted and uplifted by loved ones around you.
I missed hearing from you this year at Christmas, for the first time. May you find strength in each day as you go forward.
Thinking of you fondly always,
Linda
