Samuel Gene “Sam” McIntosh passed peacefully at home on April 3, 2023 after a long, courageous battle with cancer. Born April 24, 1951 to the late Robert and Vivian (Kirby) McIntosh; he graduated from Scio High School in 1969 and enlisted in the United States Army, serving in the Vietnam War in 1971. Throughout his life he was a coal miner, mason and carpenter; building his home with the help of friends. His Harley Davidson motorcycles and classic cars kept him moving but while in the house you could find him in his recliner watching cooking and car shows, westerns, or his recent favorite, Ridiculousness. You could find him at auctions searching for antiques, at sportsman’s clubs participating in shoots, taking up a stool at local watering holes, or hosting friends in his garage. He was a member of the Scio American Legion and Scio Sportsman’s Club.
