Passed away peacefully with family by his side.

He is survived by his wife Barbara of 62 years, daughter Barbie (Garry), son Steve (Nancy), Daughter Dana (Peter), sister Jacqueline and good friends Mike and Denise.

Malcolm was a proud Papa of six grandchildren Matthew (Alysha), Courteney, Stuart, Charlotte (Jake), Sam (Sydney) and Marcus. Six Great Grandchildren Logan, Westyn, Zaylee, BlakelyAnn, Nayva, Noah.

He was a long time member of the British Columbia Regiment retiring as a Major. Recently diagnosed with Mesothelioma, he fought with courage and bravery. Somehow he still kept a sense of humour.

Mel, you were a great man. Always there to help and always with so many stories to tell. Everyone that knew you held you in the highest regard. Carey on my friend !!

Mel, by now you will have met The Great Maker of the Earth to give an accounting of yourself. I’m sure it will have gone well, for I can witness that you are one of those all-too-rare individuals who has lived as a THOROUGHLY decent man. I’ll be seeing you again before too long , Mel. Stand by . . . George.

Dad will finally be able to lead his charge of the light brigade. Into the valley of death he rode.

To my dear Papa,

Words can not express just how much you will be missed, you sir were an absolute staple to our family.

Thank you for aways being in my corner. I was so blessed with grandparents that had such involvement from the day I was born to the day I had children of my own. Your love, humor and memories will never be forgotten and stories will be told for decades.

You were the one who could fix anything with the work ethic like no other, I just wish we could have fixed this for you!

I'll see you on the other side for a beet sandwich and some baked beans.

We love you Papa.

Courteney, Logan, Westyn, Blakely-Ann and Noah.
