William (Billy) McIntyre
I was born 1928 – the seventh child (son). Within ten years all five sisters and brother left home.
I lived an only child life with very old parents that loved me, and who worked hard during the Depression. I guided myself through puberty and through teens, consequently resulted in being an abject failure.
Violin lessons started in 1936 and I am still playing Violin 1 in late Beethoven Quartets now nearly 90. Fairly good performance in swimming, golf, bushwalking, bike riding, bowls, and most continue today.
I have had ten years as a Life Line Counsellor. Eleven years at college – electrical, radio and management. Real joy – I had an affinity with the physics of electric heating and solved heating component problems of million dollar plant for several international companies.
Married twice, two children, several grandchildren, some I haven’t met and a son that can’t stand me – that’s life.
