James Hershel McIntosh, 91, of Fairland, IN, passed away on October 18, 2016, at his home surrounded by his family. He was born on May 1, 1925, in Haddix, KY, to Dave McIntosh and Florence (Smith) McIntosh. He later met and married Gladys (Jackson) McIntosh, and they have been happily married for 64 years. After completing his education, James served in the U.S. Army and Air Forces during WWII. He proudly served his country for several years before being honorably discharged. After the service he was then employed as a painter for Naval Avionics. He was a barber for many years, as well as an ordained minister and enjoyed serving his Lord and his community. Out of all of his accomplishments, his greatest joy in life was the time he spent with his family.
