James Albert McIntosh

On May 9, 2017, James Albert McIntosh completed his mission on Earth.

James Albert McIntosh was born Nov. 2, 1933, in Long Beach, California, to Grace Isabelle Greenwell and James Hiram McIntosh. After overcoming several obstacles as a child, he entered the United States Military Academy at West Point at age 17. He graduated in 1955 and decided to continue to serve the Army in the prestigious 82nd Airborne, where he became first lieutenant and jump master.

During this time, he married Earlene Bagley, daughter of Earl and Alice Bagley, in the Idaho Falls Temple on June 22, 1956. After deciding it would be easiest on his family to stay in one place, he was honorably discharged and began his journey for his law degree at George Washington University College of Law. He moved to Utah, where he received his law degree at the University Of Utah College Of Law. He practiced law for the remainder of his life.

Jim spent his life in Utah and was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He had a true testimony of personal prayer and reading his scriptures faithfully. In his later years, he spent numerous hours on family history research and sent many names to the temple to have their work done.

Jim was also known for his honesty. Many attorneys talked about how he was always honest, especially in the courtroom. Among his many accomplishments, the first and foremost and dearest to him was his family. He and his sweet wife bore seven children (Robert died in infancy). This legacy has grown to 18 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren with one more on the way. All have stayed faithful in the Church. He will be dearly missed.

Survived by his children, Richard (Teresa) McIntosh, Debbie (Dick) Bradshaw, Bruce (Holly) McIntosh, Linda (David) Soderberg, Sheri (Randall) Petersen and Diane (Greg, deceased) Porter. All grandchildren and great-grandchildren survive him.

Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday in Foothill 7th Ward at 2215 E Roosevelt in Salt Lake City. Friends may call Friday evening at Russon Salt Lake Mortuary, 255 S. 200 E., in Salt Lake City, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and prior to services from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the 7th Ward. Burial will follow at Sunset Lawn Cemetery, 2350 E. 1300 S., in Salt Lake City. Online guestbook available at www.russonmortuary.com.

Jim McIntosh Funeral Service

Carla and I attended Jim's funeral service today.

The service was beautifully done, with lots of family in attendance, and lots of family participation. No other classmates were there, as expected. Jim spent the last two years in the VA assisted living facility in Salt Lake due to a number of health issues including, sadly, dementia. Earlene appears to be bearing up with great elegance.

A display of Jim's memorabilia was replete with West Point and Army artifacts, particularly 82nd Airborne related.

For anyone who might want to send Earlene a card her address is 1447 South, 2100 East, Salt Lake City, UT 84108.
