His parents were Bessie and James McIntosh, and he had siblings Ethel, Anna, and Alex. McIntosh married Mary Emma Graham (1906-1990) of the Wellwood district in 1929 and they had children Ian, Yvonne, Gwen, Linda, Don. Before marriage, he worked at various jobs in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. McIntosh had been educated at both Petrel and Carberry schools. He was road master for the rural Municipality of North Cypress during the 1930's. After that he was Secretary Treasurer of the Petrel school district, and held other volunteer positions in various organisations.
