Richard A. McIntosh

Mac McIntosh died this morning at home following a lengthy fight with Stage IV Pancreatic cancer. He spent the last month of his life surrounded by family and always with the steadfast support of his wife and partner of almost 50 years – Linnea.

He lived life according to a philosophy articulated by Vince Lombardi, “The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.”

His life was rich as a result – filled with joy and the fulfillment of dreams for himself and those around him who he supported – whether as a father, a coach, an Air Force officer or a friend. His was a life well lived – and he leaves with no regrets.

He leaves behind a hole in our hearts and we will greatly miss him.

A Celebration of Life will be held in Coos Bay, Oregon in the coming weeks – details will be forthcoming once we make final arrangements.

The family is truly grateful for everyone’s prayers and support throughout this journey. It has been hard, but is made easier knowing that we have such wonderful people around us – truly a testament to a great man’s impact on the world.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you please consider making a donation to support his final dream - Tribute Hall
