Allen Ellis Kintigh passed away peacefully on March 3, 2015, in The Woodlands, Texas, surrounded by his loving family. Al was born December 30, 1924, on a farm near Norcatur, Kansas. Al was a devoted family man, who was greatly admired by friends, family, and all who knew him. Al graduated from University of Colorado with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. Al worked for New York State Electric and Gas Corporation in Upstate New York for 50 years, where he retired as President and COO and was a member of their Board of Directors. His crowning achievement while at NYSEG was the construction of their flagship generating plant

Somerset Station on Lake Ontario. The power plant was later rededicated as Kintigh Station because of Al's vision and leadership of the project. After retirement Al mentored and coached each of his sons, helping them to start their own businesses. Dave Kintigh is CEO of Royal Equipment, Inc. and Eric Kintigh is the founder of Woodlands Online. Al was an inspirational role model as a husband, father, grandfather, father-in-law, friend, avid golfer, intimidating bridge player and gentleman. He was predeceased by Joanne Pratt Kintigh, his wife of 37 years and the mother of his children; and also predeceased by Georgia Jordan Kintigh, his wife of nine years.

Al moved to the Woodlands, TX in 1999 to be near his children. He soon met and married Roberta Johnson Kintigh, his loving wife of 15 years. Al and Roberta shared wonderful times together with their families and friends. They loved traveling together, and were active with their favorite social groups. Al truly enjoyed his retirement and played golf with his buddies as often as possible. One of his main goals in life was "to shoot his age". He was very close to that when he played his last round of golf just a few months before his 90th birthday. Al leaves behind his loving wife Roberta Johnson Kintigh; his sons: Dave Kintigh and wife Lisa, Eric Kintigh and wife Vicki;

Mike Johnson and wife Marcy, Tim Johnson and wife Lori; his grandchildren Jessica and husband Jimmy; Daniel, Olivia, Natalie and Jacob; Eric Johnson and wife Irina; Jodi Rutledge and husband Matt; Tori Johnson, Brandon Johnson and greatgrandchildren Jimmy, Jackson, and Joshua Fraser, Macy and Landon Rutledge, Vivian and Jaclyn Johnson. Al is also survived by his sister,Beth Kintigh Sebagh and special nieces Telia, Tammy, Jill and Jeslyn and nephews Tom and Jim. A memorial service will be held Tuesday, March 10, at 1:00 p.m. at The Woodlands United Methodist Church in the Robb Chapel. The family wishes to thank Homewatch Caregivers, The Rose of Texas Hospice, and the Staffs of St Lukes and The Broadmoor Creekside for their loving care these last few weeks.
