Born July 16, 1918, in Clyde, Callahan County, Texas to Samuel Sidney McIntosh and Mary Myrtle Kegans McIntosh, he passed away July 30, 2008 in Georgetown, Texas. He was preceded in death by his parents and best friend and wife of 61 years, Chloe Maxine Barnett McIntosh.

He was a 1935 graduate of Clyde High School, President of Freshmen and Senior classes and attended McMurry University in Abilene. He was a self-taught Morse telegraph operator with the help of many friends in Clyde and Abilene. He began his business career with Postal Telegraph Company in Pecos, Texas and was transferred to Ardmore in 1938 where he met and married the love of his life, Maxine. After their marriage on June 5, 1940, he worked for Magnolia Pipeline Company in Teague, Texas and later with Gulf Refining Company in Wink, Crane and Houston.

He joined the U.S. Navy during World War II and was a Signal Instructor at the U.S.N. Air Technical Training Center in Norman. After the war, he went back to work for Gulf Refining and West Texas Gulf Refining Companies. With excellent communications skills, oil field experience and friendly personality, he rose quickly through the ranks of Gulf Refining to Director, Oil Movement and Crude Oil Inventory in Houston. After 36 years of service, he retired from Gulf Oil Corporation (now Chevron-Texaco) in 1978.
