Malcolm, Harold Joseph “Joe” – It is with deep, profound sadness and loss that we announce the sudden passing of Joe Malcolm, age 78, on the evening of August 6, 2016 in Dartmouth General Hospital with family at his side. Born on October 2, 1937, in Sunnyside, Richmond Co., he was a son of the late Harold and Bessie (Cummings) Malcolm.
He is predeceased by his wife and best friend, Elizabeth (Hudson); and sister, Dorothy “Dot”. Surviving are sisters, Geraldine, Anne (Murray), and Mary Theresa (Bernie). He will be missed by his children, Donnie, Jim (Angela), Ronnie (Joan), Cheryl (Mark), Timmy (Debbie), and Shelly; grandchildren, Jessica, Katrina, Coady, Zach, Travis, Tyler, Amanda, and Savanna; great-grandchildren, Julia and Wayne. He is also survived by many nephews and nieces.
Joe worked for over 30 years at the Port of Halifax, and was a huge fan of hockey and baseball. His favorite teams were the Montreal Canadians and the former Montreal Expos. Dad was a very private man and he loved his family dearly. He often told stories and spoke about his younger years growing up in Cape Breton.
The family would like to acknowledge and thank our sister, Shelly, for the great care she provided Dad over the last several years.
In keeping with Dad’s request, cremation has taken place and no service will be held. The family will have a private gathering in celebration of Dad’s life.
Arrangements are under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit.
