So sorry for your loss, he was a wonderful man, my mother talked very highly of him, she had him for a teacher in high school, and then he was there when I got to high school. Always had a kind word, he will be deeply missed.

Pat & kids:
So sorry to hear of your loss. Mr. Malcolm was always pleasant, fair and just
and, after years away from Chesaning, he always remembered me when I came home to Showboat or visit my folks. Chesaning has lost a valuable citizen and a great educator-plus a really good guy!

I remember how kind Mr. Malcolm was when I was staying at your house when my parents were out of town. My grandmother died while I was there and he was the next best thing to having my own dad (Bob O'Brien) with me. My sympathies are with you all.

Mr Malcolm touched the lives of so many of us. I will always hold his memory in my heart as a man who helped me so much as I began my teaching career. He gave me guidance and suggestions as he patiently shared his knowledge.

I was in high school when Mr. Malcolm was assistant principal and I thought he was one of the kindest people I had ever met. My entire family including my Father, thought a lot of him. There should be more people like him.

I first met John Malcolm when he hired me for my 1st teaching position for the Fall of 1970. He mentored all of us new hires, guiding us through the many potential problems. He was always kind, supportive and helpful as we negotiated the teaching path. I left Chesaning in 1975 and started a different career. Twenty six years later, I returned to teaching and he was still the kind, caring gentleman by providing a reference for me. I was deeply saddened to hear of his death. What a tremendous legacy he has provided to the many whose lives he has touched...students, teachers and friends. My sincere sympaty to the family in their loss.

The police were escorting me from Chesaning Union High School in 1959 when asst. principal John Malcolm appeared and stated, "no one is taking this young man from my school while I''m in charge". John helped turn my life around. I have had a successful life in higher education mathematics both teaching and publishing. I have John Malcolm to thank for a part of my success.

My sincere condolence to the Malcolm family. I was truly saddened to hear of his passing. About a week before I graduated from CHS in 1954 Mr Malcolm keep me after class to chew me out for acting up in class. After giving me a well deserved chewing out he suprised me by asking me about my future plans. No other teacher showed interest. His genuine concern and advice led me to the US Navy and my life as it is today. I am forever gratful for his compasion and guidence. It is my prayer that God will judge him with the same compassion that he showed in life.
