Malcolm Jay Eady
Jan 15, 1934 - Jul 2, 2013
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.
