James M. McIntyre, law judge


October 16, 1992

James M. McIntyre, who retired about a year ago as an administrative law judge for the state and in 1976 as a major in the Baltimore County Police Department, died Wednesday of cancer at his home in Halethorpe.

A Mass of Christian burial for Judge McIntyre, 62, is to be offered at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow at the Roman Catholic Church of the Ascension, Potomac and Poplar avenues in Halethorpe.

When he retired after 20 years as a police officer, he was the department's legal officer with duties that included liaison to the state legislature and the state's attorney's office.

Ellison W. Ensor, who was chief of police at the time, described Mr. McIntyre as a "hell of a guy, a good man." Referring to the difficulties of completing a legal education while working as a detective, the chief said Mr. McIntyre was "a real motivated guy."

In 1966, he was admitted to the bar, the first county police officer to gain that distinction while still on the force, according to Chief Ensor and Mr. McIntyre's family.

After his retirement from the police department, Mr. McIntyre became a hearing officer for the state Motor Vehicle Administration. He was chief hearing officer when he was named an administrative law judge in 1990.

Born in Baltimore, he was a graduate of 14 Holy Martyrs School and Mount St. Joseph High School. He was also a graduate of the University of Baltimore Law School.

He is survived by his wife of 41 years, the former Emma B. Goeller; a daughter, Sharon Gugliette of Relay; two sons, James McIntyre of Halethorpe and David McIntyre of Ellicott City; a brother, Lewis McIntyre of Catonsville; and four grandchildren.

The family suggested memorial contributions to St. Agnes Hospice or the Church of the Ascension.
