Jim held his head high even though the last few months have been very tough - I prefer to think it did not break him(though I do not know). He was a good man - an honorable man - and Fremont shareholder's BEST FRIEND. Without James A. McIntyre Sr. there would have been no shareholder equity left and Fremont would have been liquidated.
His family suggested a great remembrance for Jim would be for all those who knew him to "Go to a baseball game - have a hot dog - enjoy the game" and smile just as Jim would do. That is what I will do - and I hope everyone here who benefitted from Jim's efforts or had the great opportunity to meet and know him do the same. WHAT A WONDERFUL MAN AND WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY TO REMEMBER HIM. Jim McIntyre will live forever in my heart. My sincerest sympathy to his family - with a caveat == YOU LUCK PEOPLE GOT TO LIVE WITH JIM AND BE WITH HIM EVERYDAY. Though you are in pain you are, and have been, truly lucky! God bless you all!
For everyone's information, sadly I talked to Jim less than a month ago, he lost his Daughter to emphysema, he was keeping his chin up, but, like any parent that isn't right. He lost a Son previously. That plus Fremont, as his last words to me were," these last few years have been awful"...Maybe it all broke him. Rest in peace, Jim.
