In memory of
Murray B. McIntosh Jr.
Murray B. McIntosh Jr. 1932 - 2018 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith - 2 Timothy 4:7 VASSALBORO - Murray Bernard McIntosh Jr, 86, went home to be with the Lord lovingly surrounded by family on Sunday, July 15, 2018, following a long battle with Parkinson's Disease. Murray, also known as Bob to family and friends, was born April 23, 1932, in Caribou. He faithfully served the Lord with the gifts God gave him for over 50 years. He helped build and maintain churches and served in various church leaderships. Bob visited Swaziland, Africa, twice in his later years, where he helped feed hungry, needy children and literally gave the shoes off his own feet to a man who had none. Bob was a skilled craftsman and enjoyed working with his hands. He was a welder by trade and worked for United Technologies for over 30 years. He was a dedicated father and grandfather and used these skills to help his family and anyone else in need. When Bob wasn't working, he was fishing. Faithfully accompanied by the love of his life, Murial, he enjoyed fly fishing as she watched him and knitted on the bank of the river. Most of the time, they didn't even keep the fish Bob caught. Instead, he would think of 'someone who could use it more' and gave it away. Together they loved camping, long rides through the back roads of Maine and showering friends and family with their unending hospitality. Bob was predeceased by Muriel, his loving wife and friend of 61 years; his son Rodney McIntosh; and infant son Basil McIntosh. Bob is survived by daughters, Julie and her husband Larry Rowe, Mary Ann and her husband Danny Quirion, son Bernard and his wife April McIntosh; 17 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; and many extended family members and friends. Friends and family are invited to attend visiting hours from 9-10 a.m. on Saturday, July 21, at Wheeler Funeral Home, 26 Church St., in Oakland. A funeral service will begin at 10 a.m. Following the service there will be a private family burial at Lewis Cemetery in Oakland. An online guestbook may be signed and memories shared at www.lawrybrothers.com Arrangements are by Lawry Brothers-Wheeler, 26 Church St., Oakland.
