Photojournalist whose home served as press production office dies aged 88

Malcolm McIntyre-UreA photojournalist whose house once doubled up as a local newspaper’s production office has died aged 88.

Tributes have been paid to Malcolm McIntyre-Ure, former chief photographer at the Maidenhead Advertiser.

Malcolm, pictured, also worked for titles including the Marlow Times, Henley Gazette, Beaconsfield Chronicle, Wycombe Observer, Slough Observer, Irish Times and the Christian Science Monitor during his career.

Paying tribute, his friend Peter Kemp told the Bucks Free Press Malcolm’s home in the Buckinghamshire village of Marlow Bottom had even served as the production office for the Marlow Times at one time.

Mr Kemp added: “He was a lovely, affable man who was always generous to others, though possessing little of his own.”

Malcolm had lived in the village of Llanbrynmair, Powys, in more recent times.

He was admitted to Bronglais Hospital, Aberystwyth, on 7 July after suffering from a leaking heart valve, something which had afflicted him since birth.

Malcolm died at the Llanidloes & District War Memorial Hospital on 9 September.

A service of thanksgiving for Malcolm’s life was held on September 17 at Aberystwyth Crematorium.
