Lyn McIntosh photo tribute - "A Man for all Seasons", and HOME TOWN HERO....

With sadness we announce the passing of Lyn McIntosh this past weekend.  Our condolences to Lenore, the entire McIntosh family and Lyn's brothers, my old friends Dwight, Craig and Grant.  The following post is mostly just photos. 
"A successful life is one that is lived through understanding and pursuing one's own path, not chasing after the dreams of others". 

Lyn and Lorne - a great team...

The Thunder Bay Invader....  Lyn put our town on the map with this car.  Click on every photo for enlargements.
