    I met Malcolm thru our common love of prewar MG sports cars. Like so many others… he offered suggestions and supplied critical info on my project… with his kind and clever advice.
    I hope he finds good weather, smooth roads and a good tailwind on his next part of the journey..

    Malcom and I shared a love of British sports cars. He was one of the first people I met when I joined the Midwest MGA car club. I loved listening to his stories. I think he said his father worked for MG or one the subsequent company owners. I am sorry for your loss. I will miss him.

    Malcolm was my next door neighbor for many years. I always enjoyed our driveway visits.

  4. Frank Reichart Says:

    Malcom was a member of the Pathfinder’s Sunday School Class at Old Mission United Methodist Church a few years back in which my wife and I are members. I was also the associate pastor and later, after retirement, the visitation pastor, part-time. After he quite coming to Old Mission, I tried to contact Malcom, but never got an answer to my calls. Our love and sympathy to you, his children, grandchildren, and sister, as you mourn his passing. May God’s peace be with you all.

    I knew Malcolm from working at Brookdale as his physical therapist. I am no longer in his building, but I would stop by sometimes to visit him. He had been on my mind around the time of his death and I knew I needed to visit him. I was sorry that I didn’t get to see him again. But I will remember him with great love. He was so intelligent and witty. We were of like mind in our political views so that was often the topic of conversation. He had been through so much with his health problems. I pray he is at peace. I feel grateful to have known him.

  6. Bert D. Heinzelman Says:

    Malcolm was my friend and mentor at Human Factors/Industrial Desigjn, Inc. He taught me so much professionally, and enriched my life with his sharing his appreciation of sailing, wine and classical music. My fond memories of evening with Malcolm at Carnegie Hall are forever treasured.
    RIP my friend and please forgive me for not letting you know how much you meant to me.
