It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Malcolm Paine, peacefully on April 30th at the age of 89. Born in Kent, England in 1932 to Leslie and Hilda Paine. He is pre-deceased by siblings Pamela Klokkou, Ted Paine, Jim Paine, and Sheila Lawford. He is survived by sisters Delia Ather and Leslie Folan, along with his innumerous loving nieces and nephews who will all miss him dearly. Following his brother Ted, he moved to Canada in 1954 and there began a new life and a thousand future escapades with careers spanning from restaurants, to antiques, to real estate to name but a few. Niagara Falls became his permanent home, and naming it "the greatest city in the world", he quickly became an active part of the community, always looking for ways to make a difference. His passion and involvement in the community brought him into the lives of so many and gave him the opportunity to share his infectious passion for life and laughter. He loved reading and feeding the birds, he loved garage sales and dancing, he loved people. He was perpetually "on the go" and he was IMPOSSIBLE to keep still. Malcolm's tenacious spirit, eccentric ways, seemingly tireless energy, and never-ending kindness and generosity made him unforgettable to anyone who knew him. He was certainly "one in a million" and his memory will live on through the many, many wonderful "Malcolm stories" that will be told for decades. Private cremation has taken place, and a celebration of life will be planned for a future date. Arrangements entrusted to PATTERSON FUNERAL HOME, 6062 Main St. Niagara Falls. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Niagara Falls Coronation Centre. Online condolences at pattersonfuneralhome.com

I had the pleasure of being a friend of Malcolm's since the early 2000's. We had many magnificent times together both in business and in fun. I could write many, many paragraphs about Malcolm, however this one means the most to me - Malcolm always wanted to ponder "what is the meaning of life and what's it all about", so I would say to him that he already knew and was living it to the fullest, it was simply that his love for people was his great happiness! He would smile and contently agree. And I loved his British lemon crepes :) I will always think of Malcolm, he meant the world to me. My sincere condolences to all his family and friends.

I had heard amusing stories about Malcolm over the years and finally had the fortune to meet him once, just before the pandemic shut the world down. The meeting was witty and wonderful, it's true that once you meet him you will never forget him. Sadly I wish I could have got to know him better.

Malcolm was someone that once you had met him, you could not forget him. I had the privilege of knowing Malcolm when he was young and frisky to when he was older and frisky. Over the years, we both shared many happy and sad experiences. He will always be remembered. Sleep in Peace.
Love from the Morton family, Avril (his sister-in-law), Dennis, Teress, and Cynthia

Sorry to to hear of Malcom’s passing. Condolences to his family. Whenever I visited with Malcom we always seemed to get on the subject of the meaning of life. After much debate he would always end it with “Is that what it is all about”. Rest In Peace my friend.

I will miss you, my friend. Playing chess, crib, or just laughing. I wish I'd seen you more in the last 16 months - stupid Covid. So sad.

You'd always hear uncles booming laughter before you saw him. He was always playing jokes and making light of life. We'll miss that greatly.
