Walter Mcintosh

December 8, 1939 — January 4, 2013

Walter L. McIntosh, 73, of King Settlement Road, passed away on Friday, January 4, 2013, at his residence with his friend and partner by his side.

Born December 8, 1939, in Franklin, NY, Walter was the son of Ralph W. and Catherine (Rowell) McIntosh. After graduating high school, Walter earned an associate’s degree from SUNY Delhi. Walter also served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, and was honorably discharged in July 1969. For 40 years of his working life, he worked for Kraft Foods in Edmeston, NY, and as a manager Walter earned numerous awards and certificates for the skillful and safe management of his production team.

Walter was especially fond of the house he built in 1979 and of the land he managed there. Called “Sunrise Acres,” Walter took particular pride in raising award winning Holstein cattle there, which he learned from his days being raised on a farm. He very much enjoyed gardening and tending to his flower beds as well.

Walter is survived by his friend and partner of over 16 years, Daniel W. Dumont. He is also survived by his brother Roger McIntosh, of Largo, FL; sisters Margaret Bartow, of Liberty, NY, and Thelma (Robert) Adams, of Equinunk, PA; nieces and nephews Ann, Amy, Steven, Jeff, Catherine and Brenda; and many, many friends. Walter was predeceased by his niece, Linda.

To honor Walter’s wishes, there will be no funeral service or calling hours. Burial will take place at Oleout Cemetery in Franklin, NY, at the convenience of the family.

Contributions in Walter’s memory may be made to the charity of one’s choice.
