John (Jack) Marshall Malone, 91, passed unto his eternal rest on December 31, 2020. A private family service will be held. Preceded in death by his wife, Dixie Lee Malone, and parents, John Henry and Julia Alice (Marshall) Malone (Shea), and stepfather, George Shea.
Jack’s great-grandfather, Roger Malone, was born on Compass Hill, County Tyrone, Ireland, and came to America in 1835, making Jack a fourth generation Irishman.
Jack was born on August 10, 1929 in Hudson, New York. He graduated from Kansas State University, where he met and married his college sweetheart, Dixie. They were married December 31, 1951 at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church and were together for 69 years until Dixie’s death in January 2020. Jack served in the Army during the Korean war, then became a salesman for Langdon Manufacturing and later a buyer for Boeing. However, Jack was mostly known for his kind and generous heart, and his deep love for his family.
Survived by his children, Mike (Pam) Malone, Doug (Gayle) Malone and Pat (Anita) Malone; 7 grandchildren: Amanda (Brad) Young, Tiffany (Jon) Quincy, Jamil Malone, Michael (Patty) Malone, Natalie (David) Maddock, Greg (Carlie) Malone, Jack Malone and 8 great-grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. The family wishes to thank the staff, sisters and priests at Catholic Care Center for the love and support they showered upon Jack and Dixie. Share condolences at www.cozine.com.
