Fred Potts McIntyre, 79, died on Monday April 6, 2015 in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina surrounded by his family.

Fred was born in Greensburg, PA on December 10, 1935. He graduated from The United States Naval Academy in 1959. As a graduate of the Naval Academy in Aviation and a military pilot, he was always interested in expressing patriotism and has lived his life in the manner that reflects the very best that the Naval Academy stands for: honor, commitment, patriotism and dedication.

Fred retired from the Navy in October of 1967and joined Trans World Airlines (TWA) as a commercial airline pilot until his retirement in 2000.

He married Dawn E. Entler on April 23, 1960. In 2004, he moved with Dawn from their home of 30 years in Fairfield, CT to the Charleston, SC area. They built their dream home in the neighborhood of Mount Pleasant, SC where they were very active in their community and cherished the strong friendships they developed.

Fred was a quiet man who never sought recognition, just an opportunity to help others and was always there to lend a helping hand. He volunteered his time to serve various charities around the Charleston area, including the VA Hospital, Ronald McDonald House and Habitat for Humanity, to name a few.

Fred is preceded in death by his daughter, Pamela Apsley. He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Dawn Elizabeth Ann, his daughter Cynthia (Richard) Hurd, and his sons, Stephen (Caterina) McIntyre and Andrew (Susan) McIntyre, his sister, Nancy (Ron) Albright and eight grandchildren, Christopher, Caroline, William, Matthew, Daniel, Jackson, Reid and Marlee.

Rest in Peace, Captain McIntyre
