Troy

Elvin Ernest "Mac" McIntyre, age 89, of Troy, passed away on Sunday, January 21, 2024, at FirstHealth Montgomery Hospital.

Elvin was born in Montgomery County on January 1, 1935, to Fred and Eula Morris McIntyre. He served his country in the United States Marine Corp. He was the Maintenance Superintendent for the Department of Corrections for 10+ years. Elvin loved his Lord, first and foremost in his life. He was saved in the late 60's and it totally changed his life. He would always go on Saturdays and visit folks and "haul" them to church on Sundays. Elvin never met a stranger and always had a smile for everyone.  He was soft-spoken in demeaner, but always had a joke or funny story to tell.  Elvin was very competitive in athletics. He played Legion Ball, loved golfing, hunting, working out in the gym, and working in his garden. He was known as a "professional tinkerer" always taking things apart and putting them back together. He loved his family and his many friends.  

Elvin is survived by his wife of 58 years, Roxie McIntyre; daughters: Roxanne Whitesell (Allen) of Troy, Carol Noble (Jim) of Cary, Amy Norris (Nathan) of Troy, Linda Whitesell (Mitchell) of Troy, Christina Greene (TJ) of Troy; grandchildren: Brandon Whitley (Carmen) of Albemarle, Anna Russell of Albemarle, Madison Gunter of Florida, Owen Whitesell of Durham, Benjamin Whitesell (Summer) of Albemarle, Emily Kelley of Cary, Daisy and Sawyer Greene of Troy; great grandchildren: Alayna Russell of Albemarle, and Mary Grace Whitley of Albemarle. He was preceded in death by his parents and twin brother Elbert McIntyre.
