James Edward McIntosh Sr.

Wednesday, September 1, 2021

James Edward McIntosh Sr. of Berryville, Arkansas entered the gates of Heaven on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, at the age of 76.

“Jim” was born in Cheyenne, Wyoming on April 10, 1945, the only child of James and Elizabeth Misner McIntosh.

He is preceded in death by his parents, James McIntosh and Elizabeth Hildmann and his special niece Kathy Wright Waldron.

On October 10, 1964, Jim was united in marriage with the love of his life, Paula Wright McIntosh, who survives him of the home. He is also survived by his son Jimmy McIntosh and wife Teresa of Berryville, his grandson Byran McIntosh of Berryville, one brother-in-law, nieces, nephews, many friends and loved ones.

Jim served as an Arkansas National Guard and retired in 1997 from the Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department. He loved racing stock cars, in his younger years, and that was still evident every time he visited a go-cart track with his family. He was a collector of Hot Wheels and spent many hours working on his displays. He whole heartedly loved his family, his friends, his Lone Star Church family and his country.

He loved attending antique car shows, playing card games (especially Rook), was a master at Jeopardy, enjoyed visiting Silver Dollar City every chance he got, as well as traveling and storytelling. But most of all he enjoyed supporting his grandson and attending all his football, baseball, and soccer games. He will be greatly missed.
