Home town

Jack McIntyre was a big raw-boned man who lived in a white frame house next to the old public school in Listowel, Ontario. This was during and after his playing career. His bithplace of Brussels was about 20 miles to the west. Jack owned a laundromat in Listowel where he could be found in the off-season. As small boys, we were awed by the tall, imposing presence of this man who played for the Detroit Red Wings.

Of note, the small house on the other side of the public school was inhabited in the summers by an old man when I was a boy in the 1950s. We thought of him as just a little, old man, until my father told me he was Cyclone Taylor, one of the greatest hockey players of the first half of the 20th century.
