Obituary for Robert Roy McIntire II

Robert Roy McIntire II of Cherry Hill, NJ, died February 3, 2019. Age 90. Beloved husband for 62 years to Carol McIntire (nee Dunn). Loving father of Ann Etris (Andrew) of Wayne, PA; Karen Garceau (Keith) of Fountain Inn, SC and Rebecca McIntire (Joanie) of Cherry Hill, NJ. Devoted grandfather of Travis and Emily Garceau. Dear brother of George McIntire of Abingdon, MD.

Robert R. McIntire was born in Butler, PA in 1928. The oldest of 4 children, he and his brother and twin sisters spent most of their childhood in Hagerstown, MD. In 1946 he enlisted in the US Navy and served on a submarine for 2 years. After leaving the military he pursued his education on the GI Bill, graduating first from the University of Maryland with a degree in Entomology and then from Georgetown University with an undergraduate and a master’s degree in Foreign Service. He was a member of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity where he met Carol Dunn who was attending George Washington University. They married in 1956.

Robert made a career in the pesticide business working for chemical companies and then later forming his own Agro Chemicals International Corporation. His work led him to many exciting countries around the world including Turkey, Egypt, Greece, Taiwan, South Korea and multiple locations in Latin America. He was the proud father of three daughters who were raised in Oakland, NJ, the same town where he had a laboratory. Robert designed and built a vacation house in the U.S. Virgin Island of St. Croix in 1992. He and Carol enjoyed living there in between tenants until it was sold in 2010. In 1998, Robert and Carol moved from Oakland to Cape May Courthouse, NJ and enjoyed 20 years as empty nesters living near the ocean and having family visit, especially their two beloved grandchildren.

Robert enjoyed several hobbies including painting, photography and genealogy. He loved nature, walks on the beach and spending time with his wife in St. Croix. In addition to his immediate family, he is survived by six nieces and two nephews.
