Mal loved working with his hands.There was no project he wouldn't take on, especially if it meant helping his family and friends. In his last few years, Mal thrived in his new career as a mold maker. He loved learning new skills and making new friends, especially Darren.

He will be remembered by many for his quick wit, sense of humor and practical jokes. He most enjoyed spending time with his family, especially playing sports and games with his boys. He often won (even if that meant cheating).

Mal was an avid sports fan, and in his honour you are welcome to wear your favourite sports jersey for his visitation on Friday.
