FARMINGTON – Elmer C. “Stub” McIntosh, 80, of Rangeley died Wednesday, July 18, at Franklin Memorial Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer.

He was born in Madrid, Jan. 22, 1927, a son of James and Belle (Perry) McIntosh. He lived with his wife, Lurene F. (Ross) McIntosh, on the Harold Ross Road in Dallas Plantation until her death in 2000.

He served in the U.S. Army from 1945 to 1956, after which he was employed as a Maine guide, a logger for D.C. Morton and Sons, and served as road commissioner for Dallas Plantation until he semi-retired.

After his retirement, he worked as a caretaker for Pam and Arnold Lehman from 1988 to 2002, and for Paul and Pam Gimbel from 2003 to 2006.

Stub was an avid fisherman and hunter and until the very end, he loved giving his “one liners” and creating smiles.

He is survived by his six children, Faye Boyce of Kingfield, James Beedy of Phillips, Kathy Coon of North Kingston, R.I., Karen Seaman of Rangeley, William McIntosh of Standish and Randy McIntosh of Rangeley; 11 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and a brother, Earl McIntosh, of Rangeley.

He was predeceased by his brothers, Erwin and Everett McIntosh; and sister, Ethel Beedy.
