Obituary

 Malcolm Jay Eady, 79, passed away July 2, 2013 in Elk Grove, California.

Malcolm “Mal” Eady was born 1934 in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania. In 1956, he entered the United States Air Force.  In 1958 he met and married his wife Mary.  Mal served most of his United States Air Force career as a navigator.  During his time in the military, he earned his private pilot license which was a source of tremendous pride.  He was also exposed to his most enduring love, water sports.  Mal retired from the military after serving 21 years.  Among his numerous accolades were the Bronze Star, the Distinguished Flying Cross, and the Air Medal.

After retirement, Mal enjoyed a successful second career as a mortgage broker. He also nurtured his passion for boating.  If he wasn’t on his boat, you could find him at home watching the 49ers or his beloved Sacramento Kings.  Mal was a kind and loving man who always had an extended hand, a smile on his face, a beer for his visitors and a story tell.  Our memories of him are full of love and laughter.

Malcolm was preceded in death by his parents Linwood and Verda Eady and his sister Violet Walker.  Malcolm is survived by his wife Mary; daughter Michelle Murry San Antonio, TX; daughter Monica Eady, Sacramento CA; granddaughter Christine Murry, San Antonio, TX, grandson Curtis Murry Jr, San Antonio, TX; sister Dorothy Barrett, Ellwood City, PA, sister Laura Dunlop, Saddle River, NJ; “adopted” son Jesse Dixon, Vacaville, CA and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of family and friends.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests a donation to either of the charities listed below.

    I have nothing but the fondest memories of growing up in Fairfield with you and your family. The barbecues in the backyard, the parents all getting down to Marvin Gaye or the Stylistics, we kids staying out til the street lights came on and Malcolm trying to teach me how to waterski. Such good times were had with the Eady’s and the Youngblood’s. i miss those days terribly. You were and are still family and we love you very much.

    I will miss you Malcolm. Your personality and love shone through. You reminded me of dad and knowing you were out there warmed my heart.

    Mr. Eady, Mrs. Eady and Monica have always been more than friends. It is like one of my uncles has passed away. Generosity and hospitality mixed with a great sense of humor seemed to be Mr. Eady’s way. I prayerfully hope the family is able to absorb whatever peace and comfort Gods has to offer during this time. Much good memories and love, Bryant

  • Perry Kirklin says:

    Mal (it was Mac back then) was my Ellwood City home boy. We shared a lot of teen “adventures” but regardless of the outcomes, we always had each other’s back. As adults we went different ways and were miles apart but we remained good buddies. Even after we both retired, when we got together it was never too late to enjoy a happy childhood. We loved each other and each other’s families. To Mary, Michele and Monica, I love you and deeply mourn with you.

  • Karen Strand-Arteaga says:

    Please accept my condolences.

  • Carl & Beverly Griffith says:

    The entire Griffith family can say, Malcolm always exhibited the true meaning of friendship. He was more than a friend; he was like a family member. He was selfless and generous on all levels. Always welcoming and greeting his friends with a smile. He will be deeply missed.

    Malcolm has been a true friend for many years during and after our military service. A true friend to me and my family. He was full of life all the time and always applied that little extra encouragement to be sure you came along. He will be immensely missed.
