He was born Aug. 6, 1950, in Anderson, S.C., to the union of Paul Albert McIntosh Sr. and Eleanor McIntosh. After his birth, he was nicknamed “Samson” by his maternal grandmother, Rosa Grier, because of his strength. Shortly thereafter the young family moved to Sandusky.
Paul was raised in Sandusky. He attended Mills Elementary School, Adams and Jackson Junior High schools, and graduated from Sandusky High School in 1969. After graduation, he moved to Cleveland, Ohio where he attended a technical school. He then began employment at Metro Medical Center. He continued in that employment until his retirement after 33 years of service in 2001.
