Malcolm worked as a logger from a young age, then went fishing for a few years, but always seemed to find himself back in the woods as a logger until retirement. After retirement he spent most of his time in the woods, cutting his own firewood. He also loved to cook, especially salt meat "jiggs dinner" with his exceptional doughboys, fish & brewis including the salt pork. Enjoying his traditional meals having no time for the fancy modern feasts of today was the way he liked it. Malcolm also loved animals having cats & dogs all his life.
Resting at New World Island Funeral Home, Summerford, NL. Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic there will be a private family viewing followed by a graveside service.
Donations in Malcolm's memory may be given to the Gander & Area S.P.C.A.
