I had the good fortune to know and to have done business with Warren for about 30 years. He was a fine, fine person. The world is a better place for his having lived in it.
I have been missing Warren for months now. He holds a special place in my heart. I could think that the way he treated me was unique, but I do not believe that was the case: I believe he treated everyone he met like a friend or a family member. Warren was warm, friendly, knowledgeable, HONEST, trustworthy, and quite frankly a genius; his memory, recall, and wit were phenomenal. It sounds funny to say, but I loved my mechanic. Warren looked out for my family and I, and kept us safe and from getting cheated: he might not have become rich for that, but his rich character was priceless. I will still go to Goodyear (Champaign True Tires), because they are great guys as well, but I will forever miss going to "Warren's".
I had the pleasure to know Warren while he was running Goodyear. I ran a Auto Parts store in Champaign, just down the street from Goodyear.
RIP my friend.....
I was sad to hear of the passing of Warren McIntosh. I remember Warren from High School in Robinson Ill. I used to shoot hoops with Warren & his brother Ronald in the late 60's & early 70's. Also remember his wife, Jane from Robinson. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
