    Sorry to hear of Don’s passing. I worked with him for many years at Sonora where he had coached and taught driver Ed and some social science classes. Don was one of the kindest and nicest persons I have known. He was our secret weapon years ago when the faculty played the seniors in flag football. With his athletic ability and great height he caught more passes than anyone else and in three years only dropped one when he immediately apologized. That’s the kind of guy he was! He will be missed and not forgotten. John Setmire

    Sorry to hear about Don’s passing. I worked with him at Sonora for many years and knew him well. He was respected by students and faculty where he coached basketball early in his career and taught driver training along with a few social science classes. Don was one of the kindest and nicest individuals I have known. He also was our secret weapon many years ago when the faculty played the Seniors in flag football. With his height and athletic ability he caught more passes then anyone and also was the perfect decoy. I think he only dropped one pass in three games and I will never forget that on that one he apologized. What a great guy! He will be missed and not forgotten. John Setmire

    I am sorry, but I made a mistake in my condolence about the School that Don had taught at. Sonora, is where he taught. The school that is across from where I work, is Savanna. But the rest of what I said stands. Thank you, Ron Getzan

    I live directly across the street from where Don and Barbara bought there new home a few years ago.. I also work a part time job at Dad Miller Golf Course directly across the street from Sonora High School. I never really got to know Don very well, but when we did talk together, I found him to be a very kind and gentle man. A true role model for all. When I heard from his wife Barbara that he had passed, it saddened me. But I also know that his reason for life had succeeded after reading what I have just read above me. Don made a difference in so may others lives. God Bless you Don, and rest in peace.
    Your neighbor,

    I had the pleasure of working with Don at Sonora. He was a caring, kind and generous individual, a person who never had a negative word about anyone. Don was respected by all of us who had the pleasure to work with him. I am saddened by his passing, but knowing the care he had for those around him makes his legacy stronger. I hope the family knows how much we all cared about him. Keep well.

    Dear McIntosh Family,
    i was so sad to read Don’s obituary in the OC Register. I played for Don on the Sonora High School tennis team from 1974-77. He did his best to put up with me and i have such fond memories of his wit and his leadership as COACH. I went on to graduate from Berkeley, and have been in the ministry the last 33 years. My wife, Jennifer, (class of 77 at Sonora), remembers Don from health class. We live in Irvine, CA. God Bless all of you. I forwarded the obituary to 4-5 of us who played together and keep up.
