    Very sorry for your loss! I feel very lucky to have known Malcolm, big guy always made me laugh. He was definitely never short on words. He’ll be missed!

  2. Rick Rossomanno says:

    It still doesn’t seem real. I never “got” the car thing but one thing I can say is that when we were kids NO ONE could put together a model car better than Malcolm. His models were soooooo authentic. I miss our mock arguments and laughing so loud we made the walls shake. I’ll just bet the next loud noises you hear coming from the sky are his booming laughs. RIP you crazy bastard!

    I met Malcolm in Facebook through my cousin, Rick Rossomanno. Though I never had the pleasure to meet him in person, I always enjoyed our exchanges. Malcolm was a compassionate, warm human being with a terrific sense of humour. I will miss him.
    My most sincere sympathies to all his loved ones.

    Malcolm, about 55 years ago our meeting was somehow engineered by a fate, with a real sense of humor, given we were in the same confirmation class. Our reconnecting was some great event at the CHS ALUMNI PICNIC.
    To Malcolm’s family, doing with out him is a tragedy, God Bless all.

    Malcolm – you will be missed by so many Dutchmen friends. It won’t be the same not seeing you at the lunches and picnics. But you will always be there in the memories of fellow Classmates!
