MALONE, Terrance M. "Terry"

MALONE - Terrance M. "Terry"
Died May 20, 2016 in Chula Vista, CA, after an eight-month battle with lung cancer. He had been linked with Hospice two days prior, which helped to make his death more peaceful and with less pain. He was born in Buffalo, NY on October 2, 1951, the youngest child of the late Mary C. and the late Thomas J. Malone. He is survived by his beloved significant other of 14 years, Joan Ducharme, and her two daughters, Monique and Nicole. He is also survived by his four siblings: Patricia (Alexander) Craig, Ellen (Klemens) Mazurowski, Francis (Virginia), and Thomas (Pamela) and by long-time friends, including Marcia, Jeff, Paula and Robert. Terry moved to California in the 1970s, making a living as a skilled machinist. He returned to Buffalo for a visit in the early 1980s and he and Joan had planned another visit in October 2015 for a reunion with his siblings, but had to cancel after receiving his cancer diagnosis. In spite of his long time away, he remained a loyal Bills fan. He had a "bucket list" which included his wish to see his siblings once again, and he was able to do this by their visits to see him in California before he died. He donated his body to the Medical School at UCSD. If desired, memorials in his name may be made to cancer research or to a charity of choice. A Memorial Service will be held in California at a later date.
