     2016 OBITUARY: William Ray McIntosh, 77 of Paris, known to all his friends and family as Bill, was born to Estel and Mary McIntosh in Warren County, Indiana, on January 23, 1939. He passed away on February 26, 2016 at the Missouri Veteran’s Home in Mexico, MO. He grew up in the Judyville, IN area, working on the family farm with his father, Estel, and brother, Jim. In 1957, following high school, he joined the Army. Stationed in Bamberg, Germany, he enjoyed exploring Europe and traveled as much as he could while there.
     After returning to Indiana, Bill married Nancy Johnson in 1963. They had three sons: Billy, Randy, and David Allen. They were married until 1998. A farmer at heart, Bill loved the land. In 1973 the family took a vacation to Arizona. On the way back, they stopped in Mid-Missouri and looked at some farmland. Later that year, he moved his family to the farm in Paris, Missouri. They raised crops and livestock. Later Bill began McIntosh Construction, contracting for other farmers excavating and tiling in the surrounding counties.
     Bill raised his sons, teaching them to work the farm and work construction. Billy and David Allen both followed in Bill’s military footsteps; Bill and David joining the Air Force. Like his Dad, Billy was also stationed in Germany. Bill and Nancy visited Billy, and together they revisited Bill’s barracks and favorite places. Bill loved to travel and discover new places. It wasn’t unusual for him to say, “I’m taking a trip. I’ll be back in a couple weeks.” He might go watch NASCAR races or go to Cardinal Spring Training. When asked where he was going, he might say something like, “I think I’ll head southwest.” And off he’d go in his truck. Along the way, he never met a stranger. He made friends all over the country while on his journeys, and came back with many stories.
     While he loved his adventures, he always wanted to get back to the farm. He liked nothing more than to sit on the porch and chat - preferably with a Cardinal’s game playing. Friends and neighbors would stop by to visit; or maybe to throw some steaks on the grill and have a cocktail. There were a lot of stories told on the porch in Paris, and a lot of laughs.
     Around 2000, Bill began volunteering at the Missouri Veterans Home in Mexico a couple days a week, visiting with the veterans. He was known for bringing donuts and fudge – and for telling stories. Later in life Bill moved to the VA Home, where he passed away. Special thanks to the staff at Monroe Manor and Missouri Veterans Home for their excellent care of Bill, as well as all the friends who visited and helped out.
     Bill is survived by his sons Billy (Jacquie), Randy (Terri), and David Allen (Jill); grandchildren Jerry (Samantha), Nikki, Garrett, and Grace; great-grandchildren Makenna and Peyton; siblings Jim and Norma; and many nieces and nephews. Bill was preceded in death by his brother Richard, mother Mary, and father Estel. Visitation will be at Agnew Funeral Home in Paris, MO, on Sunday, Feb. 28 from 3-5 pm. Graveside services will be held at Missouri State Veterans Cemetery, Jacksonville, MO, on Monday, Feb. 29 at 11 am, with Steve Smith officiating. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Missouri Veterans Home in Mexico, MO.
