To the family of John Malone: So sorry to hear of John's passing. He was a highschool classmate of mine. His wife Alice was a schoolmate through gradeschool and highschool, plus being a neighbor and playmate when we were young. You can be proud to have had parents like Alice and John.

John was always friendly and polite when we met at the post office or walking down the street. We had a good chat once about his work at Maytag. He came to my yard sale in May and bought some orange crates. I know he liked those flea markets and sales. May he rest in peace.
