Guillermo Antonio Mackintosh was born in Vaqueteros, El Tule Chihuaha, Mexico on a beautiful September 1st, 1936, day to Guillermo Mackintosh Reynaga and Clara Luz Tabares Moreno. Mr. Mackintosh only went to elementary school in Mexico as he began to work at an early age and self-taught himself several things by purchasing an Encyclopedia Britanica while working in the United States. He met the love of his life and married Maria Margarita Martinez on August 26, 1962 and were married for 40 years 2 months and 26 days as he would tell anyone who asked how long they had been married down to the hour and minutes. Mr. Mackintosh was a jack of all trades. He worked several farming and ranching jobs here in Pecos County to include Hiko and Alamo, Nevada. He was proud of working and taking care of the trees at the Pecan Orchards in Belding Farms. While in Hiko, Nevada he worked at a Dairy Farm for Mr. William Scholfield who he treasured and saw as his second father and also worked as a mechanic, road foreman in Colorado, foreman for Pecos County Precinct 2 and worked for the once Governor of Nevada Floyd Lamb where he had a horse named Cane that would follow him where ever he would go and encountered his best friend "Boy" who was a red Heeler who he once lost at the Las Vegas Airport due to Boy jumping out of the truck. Boy later found his way back at the ranch in Alamo, NV one week later where they both had a happy reunion. 
Mr. Mackintosh also had an interesting past from Mexico and would share his stories with those he was close to, his daughters, sons-in-law, and grandchildren. These stories he shared were a part of what made him who he was till the day he passed away. He was a strong willed and prideful man. He would do what he needed to in order to take care of his family and was a humble human being. He self-taught himself to read and write in English and was proud of being in the United States and later became a US Citizen in the 1990's. He was truly proud of his Scottish and indigenous roots from Mexico. He and his best friend Abelardo Gonzalez shared many things together as they would sit for hours telling each other’s stories, speaking of government and politics. Mr. Gonzalez was always amazed at Mr. Mackintosh's intelligence. He would state that there was nothing Mr. Mackintosh did not know and that he was absolutely brilliant. Many who had encounters with him would have to agree as there was never a question that was answered with a simple one as he would go into great length in detail to explain the question that was asked. He loved to carry conversations and was a true Republican who loved his 2nd amendment rights and at one time, while ill in the hospital, he checked out early to make sure he was able to go vote and believed his vote counted in 2017 as he came out of the voters building with his hand held high and his fingers in the V shape noting "Victory"!
Guillermo Antonio Mackintosh is preceded in death by his beautiful wife, Maria Margarita Mackintosh, his sons at birth, his parents Guillermo Mackintosh Reynaga and Clara Luz Tabares Moreno, his amazing sister Silvina Mackintosh, nephews, Joe Anthony Martinez who carried his middle name and Jose Manuel Mackintosh Jr. who was a Mormon Missionary, his great granddaughter Jocelyn Angelique Vargas, Crispy, Boy and his faithful companion for several years that kept him company when his wife passed away, Kiki Mack.

Daddy, you were the best anyone could ever have as a provider, a leader, a comforter, and a father. Your presence as big as it was in life will be missed in death. The leader of the Mackintosh Clan has gone home to be with Jesus, his savior.
