MACINTYRE, Charles Woodworth
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of
Charles Woodworth MacIntyre, 86, on Monday, February 12, 2018, at
Alderwood Rest Home, Baddeck, with his family by his side.
He was the son of the late Roderick and Agnes (Woodworth) MacIntyre.
A carpenter by trade, Charlie was a member of the Carpenter’s Union, Local 1588. Besides being a member of St. James Presbyterian Church in Catalone, he was care taker of Loch End Cemetery for many years. Charlie lived for his family and enjoyed visiting or calling them every day. If you had a cup of tea and a cookie, he was your best friend. He enjoyed making wood projects for his granddaughter, until he was no longer able, those of which will be enjoyed for many generations. Charlie was a kind, generous and loving man, he made friends easily and could strike up a conversation with anyone. He will be in our hearts forever.
Charlie is survived by his children, Jamie and Colleen (John Donovan); one grandchild, Courtney; two sisters, Eunice Sutherland and Florence MacIntyre; two brothers, Freddie and Allison (Donna); in-laws, Janie MacIntyre, Anne Marie Wadden, Rod and Betty MacIsaac and John MacIsaac. He will also be sadly missed by his many nieces and nephews.

Interment in Loch End Cemetery, Catalone at a later date.
Charlie was especially blessed to spend his final years at Alderwood Rest Home in Baddeck, where he was cared for by the exceptionally kind, compassionate and skilled staff. You treated him with the utmost respect and dignity he so deserved. We cannot thank each of you enough. You are truly angels.
