Roscoe D. Mcintosh Jr.

August 24, 1931 — February 23, 2023

Wade – Roscoe Day McIntosh, Jr., 91, died at Cary Medical Center on February, 20, 2023 with his daughter Bridget at his side.  He was born in Easton on August 24th, 1931.  His parents were Madeline (Wark) and Roscoe Day McIntosh, Sr..  He grew up in Caribou and graduated from Caribou High School in the class of 1949.

                He enlisted in the Air Force in 1950 and served four years.  He was based in Korea during the Korean War.  He was honorably discharged as a Staff Sergeant.  He stayed in touch with a good friend from his days in Korea, Mark Wells of Grass Valley, California.

                He was a man of many friendships.  Bill, Pearly, Nelly, Tom, Linda, Doc, Polly, Duane, Burt, Jerome, Erika, Rod, Delma, Jimmy, Chris, Gary, Art, John, Colonel Panko, Arnold, Marvin, Wallace, Bruce, Dick, Janet, Dale - too many more to list.  Late in life he also made new friends:  Colonel Chuck and Sue, the Freemans, and the special Coffin family.

He was predeceased by his parents, by his sister Isabel Kerby, by his brother-in-law Frank Kerby, by his brother William McIntosh, by his sister-in-law Claudette McIntosh, and by his in-laws George and Linda Seward.  He was also predeceased by his second wife Marylin Cousins and by a special friend, Barbara Foster.

                He is survived by his former wife Noreen McIntosh; by five children and their spouses:  Colleen and Ed, Bridget and Michael, Scott and Sharon, Jerry and Leslie, and Mike and Barbara; by fifteen grandchildren; by sixteen great-grandchildren; and by in-laws Marvin and Edwina McBreairty and Molly and Patrick Stevens.

                He had many nephews and nieces, including the Texas outlaws:  Amy, Mary, Billy, and Frank Roscoe.

                He was a hunter, with a special talent for deer.  Ted Williams complimented his fly fishing.  He started two businesses.  He built a camp.  He soloed an airplane.  He planted trees and was always kind to his pets. 

                His favorite song was, “You are my Sunshine”, as sung by Colleen.

                Late in life he was fortunate to be cared for by the excellent staff at Leisure Gardens in Presque Isle and by the professional and caring staff at the Maine Veterans’ Home in Caribou.

                His former wife, Noreen McIntosh of Washburn, and the best friends you could ever hope to have – Dale and Barb Dee of Caribou – took care of him and gave unstintingly of their time in his final years.

                At Roscoe’s request, there will be no services.  If you want to do something in his memory, call up an old friend and take them out to dinner.
