I was so saddened to hear that Malcolm had passed away. We worked together for many years as waiters at Steven Brown Caterers and then I worked for Malcolm when he had his booking agency, New York Cater Waiters.
Malcolm had a uniquely wry sense of humour, often using word play to turn a phrase comical. He was incredibly quirky, with offbeat references and a whimsical laugh. He was a loyal employer to me, and a special friend.
I was overdue a visit to him this past six months, so felt robbed of a final visit with him.
Many memories of Malcolm over the years will stay with me and with many others who will undoubtedly remember his loyal and gentle services while under his employ.
I hope he is at peace now, restful, and even a bit of humour beckoning.
