McIntyre, The Reverend Donald Bence, B. Arch., M. Div, M.R.E. - November 13, 1925 - November 12, 2005. Donald died peacefully, at home, on Saturday November 12, having enjoyed the opportunity to say goodbye to so many well-wishers, friends and family members. He will be sorely missed by all but none more than his loving wife and devoted companion of 55 years, Catherine. Dad's wisdom and humour will also be missed by his family, David and Jocelyn of Calgary, Andrew and Patricia of Milton and Robbie and Linda also of Calgary. His cherished grandchildren, Daniel, Jennifer, Taylor, Laurel, Dan, Ashley and Alex will also miss their Granddad. Family was special to Dad and he was in constant touch with his brothers, Lea (Eileen) and Keith (Lillian). Little sister Ann Toombs (Garth) held a special place in Dad's heart and she spent a great deal of time away from her own family helping Mom and Dad make Dad's journey easier. Special family members Brian and Margaret Shoesmith were also a great comfort to both Mom and Dad for many years. Dad had a fulfilling and happy career as an architect and leaves behind a legacy of creative and beautiful buildings that he designed for people to enjoy. In retirement, he undertook a Master's of Divinity and in 1989 was ordained as a Minister in the Anglican Church. He delighted in the opportunity to serve as an assistant at St. Michael's in Hamilton, then as an honorary assistant at the family parish, Christ Church, Flamborough. As he ministered to many families in the diocese Dad made many new and lasting friendships. He was also able to serve the church with his knowledge of architecture, as a member of the Bishop's Advisory Committee on Church Buildings. In his retirement Dad discovered a passion for writing. His sermons were regarded as a wonderful expression of Christianity. He also found time to write and publish a book about his beliefs, aptly titled "I Am What I Believe". He was working on a second book, "Becoming" which focused on his philosophies of religion and life which while unfinished, the family intends to have published. The family would like to thank all of the friends and family who have shown such kindness and love. Special thanks to the medical people who demonstrated compassion and caring, especially Mike, Nella and Wendy who helped in so many ways. Friends will be received by the family Wednesday afternoon and evening, November 16, from 2-4 and 7-9 at CHRIST CHURCH ANGLICAN, Flamborough, where the Service will be held on Thursday, November 17, at 1:00 p.m. Interment Christ Church Cemetery.
