Bill Newell Boatmun
aka Bill McIntosh
Oct 24, 1942 - Aug 9, 2014
Posted by: Shelley Lynch

Bill Newell Boatmun (A.K.A. Bill McIntosh), 72, died at Stillwater Medical
Center in Oklahoma on Saturday, August 9, 2014 after a brief illness. He leaves his beloved wife of 32 years, Wanda (Hogue) Boatmun.

He was preceded in death by his dear sister, Alverda (McIntosh)Bolton of Eucha, Oklahoma, but lovingly survived by his nieces: Dana Williams of Springfield,

Virginia; Kristy White of Leawood, Kansas; Jennifer Teague of Claremore, Oklahoma; Michelle Fitts of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Bill was born October 24, 1942 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Leonard Boatmun (A.K.A.

McIntosh) and Glenda (Stewart) Boatmun. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1959 to 1962, receiving a Good Conduct Medal in 1960 in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. He received a degree in Architectural Engineering from Oklahoma State University in 1968. After graduation he moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico and was employed as an engineer for Sandia National laboratories for almost 30 years (1968-1997). After retirement he moved to Stillwater,
Oklahoma to be closer to his children and grandchildren.

One of his hobbies included researching the genealogy of his Creek Indian ancestry. Bill was a direct descendent of Chief William H. McIntosh, Jr. (1775-1825) and he authored and published a three volume genealogical book, "Descendants of Chief William H. McIntosh, Jr.". He also created a popular Muscogee (Creek) Indian ancestry website. He put his architectural and engineering skills to work designing remote-controlled model airplanes that he enjoyed flying. He was always tinkering in his workshop, making many gifts for friends and family there. His favorite pastime, though, was spending time with

Wanda--the love of his life. His benevolent heart, positive spirit and infectious humor touched the hearts of all who knew him. On Wednesday, August 13, 2014, he will be laid to rest in a graveside service at the Combs/McIntosh Cemetery in McIntosh County where many of his Creek Indian ancestors are buried.
