Local Ice Cream hero Jim McCoy passes

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. McCoy bought the company in 1962 after Gordon McConnell died, and served as president for nearly 50 years before selling it himself in 2011. - Noozhawk
