02/18/1937 - 01/26/2015

Carl W. “Piggy” McIntosh, 77, went to be with the Lord on Monday, January 26, 2015. Carl was born on February 18, 1937 in Elizabeth City County, VA Hampton. He resided in Newport News, VA from when he was a very small child and throughout the rest of his life.
In his younger days, Carl was a waterman, consisting of fishing, crabbing, and oystering. Later, he ran his own business, McIntosh Roofing, and worked as a subcontractor for Hewitt Construction. He was a loyal member of the Warwick Moose Lodge and his passion was entertaining, ranging from dancing to singing karaoke. He also loved bowling, golf, bingo, hunting, and much, much more.
Piggy was the oldest of nine brothers and three sisters. He was preceded in death by his mother, Hazel Cameron, and his father, Robert McIntosh, Sr. He is survived by his children Cheryl McIntosh Hagen, Tina Smith, and Brandon Maxwell. He is also survived by four grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.
A memorial service will be held in Carl’s honor on Sunday February 8, 2015 at 3:00pm at Providence Mennonite Church, 13101 Warwick Blvd., Newport News, VA. A family gathering will follow at the Warwick Moose Lodge. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to assist with many expenses. Donations can be made at the service or gathering or may be mailed to Cheryl Hagen, 18174 Morgarts Beach Rd., Smithfield, VA 23430. Cheryl is handling all expenses and arrangements. Thanks for all of the support from family and loved ones. Dad, it’s been a rough road, we are happy that you are at peace and with the Lord and your loved ones. We know you and Elvis are singing to all the ladies in Heaven now! Love you, Daddy!

Carl “Piggy” McIntosh Passed on Monday 1/26/15. He went through the Valley of the Shadow of death. He passed on to the other side, where we all will partake of one day ourselves. He didn’t go alone through that unknown Valley. God sent him an Angel to comfort him and give him the peace of knowing he was loved by many and by God Himself. It was if as God was Speaking himself, holding his hand and saying it would all work out and be ok even going through this part of life we all try not to think about. Having being a witness myself at his passing I can assure all of you that I “Cleve” Saw this Angel that God had sent to Carl on his last day on this side and many months before his passing. That Angel’s name is Cheryl, his daughter who stayed up all night holding Carl,s hand and giving him the comfort he needed to get through. May God bless this Angel. Amen

Cheryl ,

I am so sorry for your loss. He was blessed to have you as a daughter. You hung in there and was by his side through thick and thin. No matter what path he chose to live you always found forgiveness in your heart. Like you said “Honor thy Father and Mother”

We love you and God Bless

I always called him Uncle Piggy but he was really my second cousin. He was a sweet man and terrific dancer. My husband Dave and I would see him at a local tavern and i would dance a few with Piggy.

My mom Juanita Holt God rest her sole would talk of the day’s her and her cousins all played together.

May peace be with his family.
