Daniel James McIntyre (Danny,) age 82, passed away Friday March 1st, 2024, surrounded by family after a long and brave battle with cancer. He is survived by his beloved wife of 57 years Margaret "Maggie" (Allen) and his children Bridget (Sean Troy,) Danny, and Meg. He was a dear brother to Patrick (Mickey,) Michael (Jeanne,) and Katie (Dan Ramella,) and devoted grandfather to Catherine, Mary, and John Troy, and Chloe and Dugan McIntyre. Adored uncle to his many nieces, nephews, and their children. He is preceded in death by his brother, Tom; his parents Catherine and Ignatius McIntyre; as well as nieces Erin McIntyre and Heidi Allen.
Family was the center of his life. His wife, siblings, children, and 'friends that are family' were everything to Danny. Known for his humor, he loved to make people laugh. A gifted storyteller, his tales will live on.
Danny grew up on Bunts Rd. in Lakewood OH, attending St. Luke Grade School and St. Edward HS, class of 1959. He studied at John Carroll University before enlisting in the National Guard. He remained close with many of his childhood friends throughout his life. Athletics were his passion. He excelled in sports as a student and was an avid fan of all high school teams and players, particularly his beloved SEHS Eagles.

Danny was proud of his 40+ year career in his family business, Pat Joyce Taverns. He cherished working with his father and brothers, as well as his crew and customers at Pat Joyce's Rockcliffe location. Upon retirement, he enjoyed a second career with the Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency championing financial and medical support for children. A longtime friend of Bill W., sobriety and recovery was a focus in his life, and he sponsored and mentored many.

When Danny wasn't working or attending his family's sporting events and craft shows; his happy place was on the golf course or at the family cottage in Huron, Ohio.
