KENNEBUNK — A memorial service to honor the life of William "Billy Mac" McIntire was held Sunday at the Franciscan Monastery, where more than 500 friends and family members gathered from near and far to say goodbye to a friend, family member and fisherman.
 
McIntire, who lived in the Cape Neddick section of York, was lost at sea on Aug. 22 just off Perkins Cove in Ogunquit. He was a tuna fisherman, and authorities say he went out on his boat, The Clover, that night with friends, jumped in and was never seen again.After an opening prayer, McIntire's sister, Kim McIntire, shared memories of her brother.
 
"We are here today to not be sad and grieve but to remember all the good about Billy," she said.
