John McIntyre passed away unexpectedly at home on Jan. 5, 2014. He was born in Kings Lynn Norfolk, England, on June 20, 1957.
John traveled to many places as he was growing up, following his father and stepfather during their military careers. He made California his home in 1977. Music was John’s first passion. At the age of 4 he received his first guitar for Christmas and at the age of 10 his first electric. From that moment on he knew he wanted to be a musician. As a teenager, he and his friends would play music endlessly. In 1979, John joined CP Krunt and started another chapter in his musical career. Over the years he played in many bands: 5150, Direct Current, The Coolers and local bands The Lizards and Grey Daze. John touched many with his music and formed lifelong relationships with his former band mates. John’s other passions included being an ever-faithful 49ers fan, military and Biblical history. He was a member at Unity of Valley Spiritual Center, where he was the “Sound Man.”
He is survived by his wife, Kathleen McIntyre; son, Ryan Crawford; stepdaughter, Amanda Bouffard; mother and stepfather, Doreen and Russ Hoffmann; stepmother, Linda McIntyre; brothers, Steven, David and Keith McIntyre; sister, Lori Frakes; grandchildren, Yelena and Ryan Crawford Jr.; and many nieces and nephews whom he loved so much. He is preceded in death by his father Elmer McIntyre.
Services will be 2 p.m. Monday, Jan. 13, 2014, at Unity of Valley Spiritual Center, 350 N. Orchard Ave., Vacaville, Calif. 95688.
Johnny Mac, keeping rockin’ up there and turn it up to 11!
