Clair Lee McIntosh, 90 of Gillette, WY passed away on February 12, 2023 at Campbell County Health. Clair was born on June 29, 1932 in Harrison, NE to Howard and Frances (DeHaven) McIntosh. He joined two brothers, Dean and Wilber. Clair grew up in Harrison, cowboying for several ranches. At 18 he joined the US Navy, and proudly served on USS Orleck from 1950-1954. After being honorably discharged, Clair and his best buddy, Pat Broderick, wrangled at Horton’s Dude Ranch above Buffalo in the Bighorn Mountains. He then moved to Casper, WY and worked construction, before coming to Gillette, WY to work in the oil fields. There Clair met Norma Baumfaulk, and they were married on March 23, 1957; they were blessed with four children. Julie Clair (Art) Dahn, Renn, Marty, and Mickey (Kelli) McIntosh. In the early 1960’s he bought a backhoe, and dug uranium pits for Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Company. In 1972 Clair and Norma purchased the Center Bar from Neil McLean, and ran it for 31 years. Clair was well known for his winning smile, quick wit, and his noble, loving and caring manner. He will be missed by many, including his two faithful friends Snooks and Abby, sitting next to his chair, waiting for that special treat. Clair is survived by his wife Norma McIntosh; children and grandchildren, Bobby Jo (Emil) Welch, Troy Nordheim, Brittany Baker, Jessica Lee Ferderer, Logan (Carlee) McIntosh, Skylar (Allix) Stitt, Tyler Romero, and McKenzy McIntosh; great-grandchildren, Chyann Claire, Dawson, and Eden Welch, Jeffrery Baker, Trenten Nordheim, Camden and Bridger McIntosh, Lizzy and Iris Stitt, Karter and Landri Romero; great-great-granddaughter, Ivy McIntosh; niece, Janet (Bob) McGill, and great-nephew, James (Alissa) McGill.
