He was preceded in death by his parents: Harold L. "Friday" McIntosh and Mary K. McIntosh.

Gary played on Bills Bears little league team with me probably in 1957 or 58. His dad Friday worked with my dad at Holsum Bread for many years. Last saw Gary at Horton Smith golf course a couple of years ago. Nice guy and good athlete. RIP
