John Nash McIntosh - WINCHESTER, TN - John Nash McIntosh, 75, died peacefully on Friday, August 2, 2013 in Winchester, TN. Nash was born in Savannah, Georgia on May 23, 1938 to the late Olin and Sally McIntosh. Nash graduated from St. Andrews High School in Middletown, DE, and earned his B.A. degree from University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. After serving in the U.S. Navy, he worked in naval stores and banking, and then ran his own company, Whitney and Oettler. Nash also spent much of his career in real estate, focusing primarily on the rural land that he loved. A lifelong resident of Savannah, Nash would spend every spare minute enjoying the wonders of the coast and downtown Savannah. Nash knew the rivers and creeks by heart, and loved to take his boat Po' Cracker out fishing. Swimming has been a part of Nash's life since he was a youngster growing up in Isle of Hope. He celebrated his 70th birthday by swimming from Tybee to Hilton Head. Nash also enjoyed windsurfing and was an accomplished sailor. He passed all of these passions and more on to his sons and granddaughters, and his love of living life to its fullest will be their fondest memory. Survivors include his sons, Horace Smithy McIntosh (Lisa), Cheshire Nash McIntosh, and Christopher Wood Dixon McIntosh; his granddaughters, Mary Taylor and Elisabeth Smithy McIntosh; his sister Sally McIntosh Ziegler (Ted); his beloved JoLyn Hilliard and her children, Britton, Bailey, Sydney and Jared Hilliard; and countless McIntosh cousins.

The family will welcome guests after the service.
