Mal leaves a legacy of compassion and giving throughout his life journey. A sense of humor to break life tensions even as he battled so much with his illness. He will remain in our hearts forever. Peace to the family. Janna Martin

We will certainly miss you our friend (COB). You were a great wing man navigating the group to our golf courses especially in the mountains.
Rest In Peace & we will all see you on the other side. Love you.
