Malcolm John Powers

May 16, 1955 – January 6, 2022
In Loving Memory ~
It is with sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Malcolm Powers.
Malcolm is survived by his wife Marie, daughter Rebecca (Cody), and grandson Kyle, sister Heather, and brothers Garth and John (Traci).
Malcolm grew up in Prince George, BC. It was evident that he had mechanical abilities early in life. He could fix almost anything. As a young man, he and a friend were featured in the newspaper when they were photographed on a souped up bicycle.
Malcolm also loved swimming and diving, and could have been a lifeguard, but he was considered too young. While growing up, Malcolm was also active as a Boy Scout, a hockey player and a rugby player.
Malcolm had a love for cars, but the Mustang was by far his favorite. He had a passion for detailing vehicles and often relatives, and friend’s benefited from this hobby.
Malcolm met Marie in 1972 and they were married in 1974. Although they married young, that love lasted for 47 years and beyond!
Malcolm and Marie started their life together in Terrace, BC. Malcolm began his career as a heavy duty mechanic apprentice, working for Madigan Equipment (John Deere). After a couple of years, Malcolm applied for a position and started working for Babine Forest Products in July, 1976. While there, he finished and received his Heavy Duty Mechanic Licence and went on to be in charge of the Shop and Log yard.
Malcolm was an active member of the Burns Lake, Kinsmen Club. He also played hockey, and enjoyed water skiing, camping, ocean fishing and snowmobiling. We could always find Malcolm busy with daughter Rebecca, from coaching Little League Baseball to keeping the snowmobiles running for her enjoyment. Malcolm always looked forward to the snowmobile trips he took to Sabola Mountain and the ocean fishing trips to Kitimat.
In 1992, Malcolm took a position with West Fraser in 100 Mile House as Maintenance Planner and eventually, he went on to the Sawmill Superintendent position. Life was busy, but there was always time to play cards with family and friends.
Grandson Kyle was born in 2003. As Kyle grew, Malcolm became very good at nurturing his grandson and his imagination of wooden sword making.
After retiring, the family moved to Campbell River.
Although, Malcolm’s health was deteriorating we could always find him in his workshop building bird houses or wood turning projects and detailing vehicles. When his health deteriorated further, Malcolm became an avid reader.
Malcolm was a gentle, kind, and generous man. He will always be loved, not forgotten, and deeply missed by family and life-long friends.
By request, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Lung Association.Obituary
