Malcom was a well respected member of the community and will not be forgotten. I recall chatting with Malcolm on his wharf in Tiverton just before lobster season a number of years ago; he was looking forward to the occasional trip out in the Bay in his boat... now Captained by his grandson. At that time he'd been retired for a number of years but his interest in the fishery and love of the sea were apparent. My deepest sympathy to all the family.
Sincerely,
Lawna Stewart

Sincere condolence to Malcolm’s entire family. My sister Donna and I were able to visit him last summer in Digby, I hadn’t seen him in years but he remembered me right away asking how my brother Willard was doing extending his best to him.
A gentle giant has joined the angles in Heaven, may he rest in peace🙏🏻💙.
