At IBM, I was the junior marketing rep on the GE Team with Malcolm. A quiet leader, whom I emulated...
I can remember him leaving on a Thursday and returning on a Tuesday from the Cape...I learned quick as I was in charge!
He often talked of his love of sailing, but I got a Whoa Whoa and a holler out of him when I took him and our team out on the speed boat out of Milford Harbor! I swear he was like a 12 year old!
He is remembered fondly!
My sincerest condolences to your family.
