Obituary of Brendon MacIntyre

Brendon Stephen Mac Intyre


It is with deep sadness the family announces that Brendon passed away in the Palliative Care Unit at the Cape Breton Hospital on July 31, 2019. Born December 24, 1953 in Glace Bay, he was the son of late Rannie and Tina (Mc Bride) Mac Intyre. Brendon worked hard and enjoyed a successful career as a member of the United Mine Workers of America (U.M.W.A), starting his career as a miner in 1975. Throughout and following his career, Brendon helped fellow miners and their families with receiving pensions and compensation entitlements.

He had a passion for advocacy and he remained active in local politics, always fighting for his community. Brendon was a sport enthusiast who enjoyed playing baseball and hockey throughout his life and he never missed a chance to support the Boston Bruins or Boston Red Sox. Most importantly Brendon was a proud, loving family man who adored his wife, daughters, grandchildren and his baby brother, Dale. He created an abundance of happy memories and traditions that will last a lifetime.

Brendon is survived by his wife Rosemary (Cusack); daughters Alesha (Nick) Barker and Tracey (Kirk) Power; brother, Dale MacIntyre; grandchildren Lucah, Quinn, Layla and Halle, as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his parents; brothers, Jimmy, Ronnie, Joey and sister Teresa.
