Topic: Other Non Comics Works
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3639 - Yesterday morning I received word that my Great Uncle Howard McIntosh had passed away during the night. Being his power of attorney, I had to go to Los Angeles to take care of several items, which are discussed in the below obituary.
It was Howard and his deceased wife, Marge (Carr) McIntosh, who started me on comic books back in the 1950s. I mention them each year in my annual 'Whom I Am Thankful For... The Thanksgiving Post', when I update it each year.
Howard and Marge are shown in the topmost photo.
Howard is shown with my wife Tina and me in the two other photos, that were taken during the February 2009 Zap! Pow! Bam! Exhibit at the Skirball in Los Angeles.
It has been a long and wonderful life for my Great Uncle Howard. I am pleased to have helped him the last few months in his adjusting to assisted living care in between visits to the hospital and rehab center.
My condolences to the rest of his family members and his friends.
Here is the obituary:
Howard A. McIntosh, 96, Monterey Park, CA
My thanks to my wife, Tina LoSasso, who wrote the above obituary with help from family members.
Also, there will be a web page In Memory of Howard Adolph McIntosh at this link, (after 5PM today), courtesy of the mortuary, Pierce Brothers Turner and Stevens Mortuary.
