Thomas "Big T" Lou Malloch

1 February, 19471 September, 2020

Thomas Lou Malloch, 73, died peacefully following a brief illness. Born on February 1, 1947, Tom was the son of James R. and June L. Malloch. Born in California, spending high school years in Hawaii, and going where his life took him, Tom was truly the embodiment of a free spirit who lived life to the fullest. The nickname "Big T" applied to both his physical stature and his larger than life personality. He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Sydnor A. Malloch of the home and son Scott Thomas Malloch of Charlotte. Also, brother James Malloch and wife Virl of Texas; sister Caroline Clack and husband Dan of Nevada; brother Michael Malloch of New York; brother-in-law Charles L. Alexander of North Carolina; two nieces, Patti Ledbetter and Terri Montalvo and their spouses and children and his 4-legged best friend Rex.

Per his request and due to the current health conditions, there will be no formal funeral service. Tom has asked that his friends lift a glass to him and remember him as the good friend he has been to so many. And as he would have said, "save time, do it my way". Rest in peace Tom. We will always love you. Our thanks to the staff of Novant- Matthews Hospital, both ICU and hospice, for their caring and help. They are truly exceptional people. Arrangements are by Wilson Funeral and Cremation Service, Charlotte.

I was so saddened to hear about the huge loss of one of my all-time favorite people, “Big T”.
He was always so kind to me and put up with me on the golf course many times. I had my own nickname for him, “The Big Hack.” One time I had a miraculous chip shot onto the green and it scurried on into the hole (a par 3). He ran across the green and gave me a hug as large as him. Such a sweet man, father, husband and the best chef. His Thanksgiving meal was over the top!
I will never ever forget him!
Lots of love, hugs and peace to Syd, Scott, Rex and his entire family.🥰☮️
Love, Lorna A.

Tommie my brother, a piece of me is gone and I am surely missing you. I am so glad to have grown up with you even though we had our disagreements we always worked them out. I'm proud of all the life long accomplishments you have made with family, work and friends. Our recent fishing trips together were very special to me and never be forgotten. I know that you are now with all our loved ones. Peace be with you, my brother Tommie.
Your loving brother, Jimmie

I always thought of my Uncle Tom as the cool, laid-back version of my Dad (ha, sorry, Dad). The broad shouldered, tall uncle who always had a full beard, was quick to laugh, cooked delicious meals & told some of the best stories! I remember when I was a young teenager visiting my Gran, his Mom, he invited us to his home for dinner. He had lots of wine around the table & tried to sneak me some but Gran wouldn't let him (ha)! He would always have a joke, tease Gran & make her laugh. I like to think of him still doing that just in Heaven now. Sending you lots of love, Syd & Scott.

I have know Scott for ages and Big T was a great part of my life. Always ready for a quick wise crack and a clever tongue, he was there with his barrel chest laughter and a smile. I will always have fond memories of you Big T. You will be greatly missed.

I enjoyed meeting Big T outside of waterman a job that both Scott I were employed at the time. We shared conversation and laughs. We also found out we shared the same birthday. I’m glad we had the opportunity to meet and talk. Even it was for a brief second. Condolences to Big Scott and the entire family. I love you man. I’m always here
