Longtime CTV Barrie weatherman Bob McIntyre passed away today at RVH in Barrie.   He was 73.

Bob was a fixture on our station and in our community for over 40 years, until his retirement last fall.

Bob's health took a very sudden turn in recent days. His wife Darlene was by his side when he died.

Bob's loved ones are asking for privacy during this difficult time and we are honouring that request.

In the days to come we will produce a tribute to honour Bob's life and his legacy. We encourage you to share your thoughts about Bob with in the comments below and by e-mail.

We will have more details on CTV Barrie as they become available.
