Malcolm was known to be a strong car enthusiast … more specifically Ford Mustangs. As a single dad for many years, Malcolm was very fond of his two daughters, Jacquelyn and Jennifer. The girls were the light of Malcolm’s life and he talked about them often. He enjoyed teaching them hands on skills to last a lifetime. His home was built with lots of love and many family projects. Malcolm enjoyed trips and experiences with his daughters ranging from visiting Carmel Valley, Chico, adventures to find the best ice cream and exploring new places. Malcolm had a true love of ice cream and baking, which he liked to do in his free time. Malcolm was always known to go above and beyond for his friends and family. He will be remembered walking around the neighborhood and talking to any person he encountered. Malcolm’s home, business, friends, family and daughters were his pride and joy.
