I worked with Malcolm for over 30 years @ Ford Motor Company. He was a hard worker and good friend. My wife made him a Philippine food dish that he just loved. He wasn't a man of many words but I could always get him to crack a smile. I'll miss my workmate and friend. Malcolm you're one of a kind. Miss ya bud R.I.P. See you in the next life ✌
