Obituary for Robbie McIntosh

Robert " Robbie " Byron McIntosh, 60 of Irvine, KY passed away Saturday, September 25th, 2021 at the University of Kentucky Medical Center following a long illness. He was born December 30th, 1960 in Louisville, Kentucky to the late Arthur McIntosh and Emma Tipton McIntosh. He was a former Iron Worker and Welder. He lived in Estill County most of life.
In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by 3 sisters; Doris Fox, Mary Bowlin, and Margaret Cumpton; and 1 brother; Eddie McIntosh.
Mr. McIntosh is Survived by 2 Daughters; Cayla LeAnn McIntosh of Lexington, KY and Catie Lynna McIntosh of Chicago, IL, 2 granddaughters, Carlie Grace Sons and Emilee Caroline Embs, 1 sister; Janet (Bill) Walters of Estill County and a host of Nieces and Nephews.
While our father's death was unexpected, he passed away due to complications from colon cancer with his daughter by his side. Cancer was not the only disease to consume him. Our dad struggled our entire lives from drug addiction. We feared his addiction would claim his life, and during the past five years, his disease brought him to a place of incredible darkness.
Each horrible thing he did in the name of his disease increased his pain and shame. His addiction stalked him for so long, but now he can finally rest.
If you yourself are struggling from addiction, know every breath is a fresh start. Know that hundreds of thousands of people are rooting for you, as they have lost someone too. It's never too late.
If you are reading this with judgement, please educate yourself about addiction. It's not a choice or weakness and chances are someone you know is struggling and needs and deserves your support.
Visitation for will be Thursday, September 30th, 2021, at Lewis-Abner Home for Funerals for family from 5pm to 6pm. Visitation for the public will be held from 6 pm to 8 pm. Memorial Services will be held privately. The Family is requesting masks to be worn while attending the visitation.
In lieu of Flowers, his daughters are requesting donations for funeral expenses. Donations can be made at any Fifth Third Bank, c/o Cayla McIntosh.
