Malcolm died suddenly, due to heart failure, he did not suffer. Whether you knew him as Mac, Daddy, or Ampa, we all agree that his personality was larger than life. He could have a conversation with anyone, anywhere. He was a very likeable man. Mac was on only child born to Robert and Janet (Brown) Joss in Royal Oak, MI. They moved to Seattle in the early 1940's where Mac later graduated from Lincoln High School and enjoyed rowing for the UW. Mac served in the Army during the Korean War as a Communications specialist. Mac was blessed with many daughters, grand-children and greats; whom he took much pride in. Mac is survived by his wife, Barbara; daughter, Diana Spencer, her children Brendan Spencer and Heather Houser, her daughters, Taylor Houser, and Jayden Struthers; daughter, Leslie Koontz, son, Troy and Missy Koontz; daughter, Debi Forsell, husband, Bob Hagin, son, Matt and Amanda Forsell, son, Jack; daughter, Lauren and Chris Brown, son, Carter; son, Jesse Forsell; daughter, Jana and Bill Easterling, daughter, Kara and Kyle Westley; daughter, Krysta Rasmussen, partner, David Mueller; daughter, Michelle Joss, partner, Kirk Melby.
