About Lawrence F. McIntyre and Helen M. Sullivan

Lawrence Francis McIntyre born, January 2, 1913, was named John Francis McIntyre on his birth certificate. But, by the time he was baptized at St. Malachy Church in Chicago on January 19, 1913, his given name was Lawrence. Helen Mae Sullivan, born on March 11, 1914, moved with her parents and older brother to 18 N. Latrobe before she started elementary school. Larry and Helen were married on November 26, 1937 in Chicago Illinois at St. Thomas Aquinas Church. They lived on the westside of Chicago at various addresses, moving back to 18 N. Latrobe c1949 and lived there until 1967 when they moved to the northside of the City. Larry retired from the Weil Pump Company in the 1980s and Helen retired from Home Federal Savings in the 1970s. They were original owners of their condo on Lake Michigan. Larry loved to stand on his balcony overlooking the lake and enjoy the sun. Helen liked the freedom of hoping on a bus to go downtown or a quick walk to the grocery store. She never learned to drive so Larry would often chauffeur her around. When he died in 1995 (February 28) she said she had lost her "best friend." Helen enjoyed her condo on Lake Michigan and was able to live independently until her death on September 29, 2008.

Cruver Manufacturing Company

(7) 1920 Cruver Manufacturing Company Correspondence Letters 
Larry McIntyre worked for Cruver Manufacturing in the 1940s and early 1950s.  This document was found on the Internet at the Time Passages Nostalgia Company.   It shows the manufacturing plant located at 2456-2460 W. Jackson Boulevard, Chicago.  The president was Curt Cruver, whom Larry knew quite well.  The company made specialty items, mostly out of celluloid.  Larry would bring home all sorts of playing cards, cowboys and Indians, and dice.  Great toys for the kids.
