Malcolm Michael Junker, Jr., age 70, passed away on Saturday, August 10, 2019 while living his dream in Belize. He was born on October 26, 1948 in San Antonio, Texas to the late Malcolm Michael Junker, Sr. and Marie Sahuque Junker Dwyer.

He is survived by his sisters, Marie Junker Curry (George), Lucy Junker Tujague (Steve) and Tammy Junker DeLatte (Craig); his niece and goddaughter, Elizabeth Curry Gibbons (Grant), nieces Renee Tujague Cresap (Doug), Victoria Whittington and Alexis Whittington Williams (Thadeus); nephew, Stephen L. Tujague, Jr. (Holly); great nieces and nephews, Kate and Georgia Gibbons, Emma, Stevie, Ali, Annie, Mary Lucy, and Charlie Tujague, Mia, Ava and Carter Cresap; and numerous uncles, aunts, many cousins and friends.

Malcolm’s love for his family and friends knew no boundaries. He was a true friend, had the biggest heart and was always there to lend a helping hand. He never met a stranger and you would immediately become his friend with his inviting smile, joyful spirit, and warm and kind generous heart. He loved the water, sailing, boating, fishing, snorkeling, cooking and telling a good story or two or maybe three, but most of all he loved people and entertaining them. He was living his best life and invited all to visit him wherever he lived, but especially in Belize, where he enjoyed showing friends his dream life of retirement. Malcolm will always be in our hearts and will be deeply missed by all who were blessed to call him a brother, brother-in-law or friend. He loved the country of Belize and its people and his Texas and Belize friends were a very special part of his life.

Malcolm grew up in the Irish Channel. He attended Redemptorist High School and Alcee Fortier High School, graduating in 1968. He was a City of New Orleans Policeman, working in the 6th District for 10 years. He retired from Boh Environmental, LLC, in 2017, where he was a loyal employee for 18 years. His last assignment was as a production manager in Houston, Texas.

I had the priviledge of working with Brother Malcolm in the 6th District,NOPD. Malcolm was a very good police officer working in a very "tough" police district. He was honest,brave and respectful of everyone. He was also a proud member of the Police Assn. of New Orleans (PANO) of which I founded and serves as President of. He joined me in the fight for better police equipment, first aid kits in the District squad cars, better police units,better working conditions and better wages. I knew him to be a solid police officer and the type that you wanted to be with you in a tight and/or dangerous situation. God Bless him and his family. Sgt. Irv Magri, Founder and Past President PANO

Dear Malcolm,
You are an angel and you were an angel on earth too! Your smile and your continuous giving to everyone will be so missed on Ambergris Caye. I could always count on you for an early morning text wherever you were. And of course a visit weekly when you were on island. I’m so glad I have pictures of our memories. Always a gentleman, I already miss you terribly!

Malcolm, you were one of a kind, a friend, a coworker, Sixth District Officer and an all around good individual. Always a smile on your face and nothing bad to say about anyone. Your sailing and your retirement were well earned. We are going to miss you so save a place in heaven for us and I hope that we meet again, just not right away, OK?

Dear friend, I did not want to believe when I realized that I would not see you anymore and I was hoping to see you because you had said that you were coming to the United States in this month, you left us too soon but I am glad that your last days you enjoyed living your dreams ...
I will miss you...... rest in peace my friend.

The more I lean about Malcom the more I realize what an amazing individual he was. It is obvious how loved he was by so many people. In every picture I’ve seen of him he has a joy for life radiating from his face. Put simply he was just a beautiful person.
