Deeply shocked by Malcolm's passing. I fondly remember many travels with Malcolm during my stay in Houston. It was only a few days ago I was looking through some photos of the Houston staff and remembering our social get togethers.
Malcolm also assisted me with assimilating into the Texas way of life.
A great loss and my condolences to all the family.

Sending our deepest sympathy to all the family on the loss of such a lovely man, from all the Watmough family in England.

Malcolm spent many a day with Keith, Susan and I at Turner Bridge Road in Bolton playing football and other games. I remember one time he spent a whole week up in our neighbour’s tree and my mum had to call him to come down for dinner and tea and drinks. I remember his first visit to watch Bolton Wanderers in 1965 against Plymouth, the heavens opened that day and Bolton won 6 - 0 . I also remember sleep overs at auntie Betty’s and Uncle Clifford’s house and going to the chip shop for suppers . I used to ride Malcolm’s two wheeler bike and there are so many happy memories there that will never be forgotten . Sunday’s were a special family day at our Grandma’s and Grandad’s house in ince Wigan, playing cowboys and Indians, army games, football ,you name it we played it! Lots of happy days being brought up with him and very special times in our lives never ever forgotten - these are treasured memories.

God bless all the Watmough family in the USA, our love and best wishes to you all from Ian, Denise and family xxxxxxxxx
