Go enjoy some local McConnell's Ice Cream in his honor.
Jim McCoy, the former longtime owner of one of Santa Barbara’s best known businesses — McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams — died this week, according to his family.
McCoy, 81 passed away peacefully at his home Tuesday.
McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams was founded in 1949 by Gordon “Mac” and Ernesteen McConnell.
