Born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1938 to Fred and Nina McIntosh. Bill attended Vanderbilt University and also served in the United States Navy. He moved with his family to Gilroy in 1971 to become the President of Pacific Central paper company. Bill was very active in the local community. He was a past president of the Rotary Club and the Chamber of Commerce. His work with the garlic festival, and being a president of little league, and Chairman of the March of Dimes, among many other volunteer works, led to him being named Man of the Year in 1983.

Bill was also an avid duplicate bridge player throughout his life, and spent a great deal of his retirement being a director at the Santa Cruz Bridge Center, as well as directing bridge games on cruises and teaching new players to love the game as he did.

Services are to be held Saturday February 25th at 1:30pm at St. Stephens Episcopal Church in Gilroy. Immediately afterward there will be a celebration of his life at the Old City Hall in Gilroy.
