Dr. McIntosh was a faithful servant to many

Dear Editor:

The words of Jesus Christ state “for the son of man came not to be served, but to serve.”

Dr. McIntosh faithfully served our community, his patients and our hospital by investing in people. His outward service was an expression of his inward faith.

He demonstrated competent selfless care and goodness to many in the best interest and concern for the welfare of his patients. He contributed to the betterment of our hospital’s reputation by the services he rendered. His life was busy, often interrupted by tasks and responsibilities that might have seemed overwhelming to others.

What fueled a willing heart such as his? Determination.

His eyes were always open to divine resources and he was guidable. He was grateful for the work of his profession and also demonstrated a passion for the wellness of many.

His character was a moral portrait of Christian service, birthed from within.

In our materialistic culture, it is believed wealth and fame constitute success, but God places a premium on faithfulness. Dr. McIntosh was a faithful servant to family, patients and our area. He lived a life that mattered. What an outstanding friend he was to us! We can sum up his life in two words — found faithful!
