OBITUARY: David Malone


David Malone passed away peacefully in his home, surrounded by his loved ones on December 6, 2023 at the age of 84.

Born September 24, 1939, he was the son of the late John and Bessie Woods Malone.

David served proudly in the Marine Corps. He spent 22 years in road construction for Blue Rock Industries in Westbrook, Maine, when he founded his own company Damon and Malone in Scarborough, ME. In 2009, he moved to Columbia, TN to assist with the family business, SoftSpace South in Columbia TN. He could always be seen sauntering through the shop making jokes and telling everyone to put some extra time on their time cards. He was known lovingly as Mr. Dave.

David loved his old 45’s, John Wayne and motorcycles. But his greatest joy was spending time with his family and friends, always good for a bet on the football game with the bet being for a burger and a beer or with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren offering a little walking around money.

Dave was survived by the love of his life of 48 years, Patricia Malone; His children, John & Gail Malone, David and Kelly Andrews, Stephen and Jacqueline Andrews, Mike Malone, Gloria and William Clark, Susan Mesko, John Mesko, Deanna Dipietrantonio. His 10 grandchildren, Brooke, MacKenzie, Whitney, Bethany, Brian, Dustin, Joseph, Ashley, Emily, SueEllen and 7 Great-Grandchildren – Alexia, Tobias, Keyana, Arlo, Jayden, Brody and Caleb.

The family will visit with friends for service on Thursday, December 14, 2023 from 4 P.M. to 5 P.M. at Oakes & Nichols Funeral Home in Columbia, TN. A celebration of life will follow immediately at the Rebel in Columbia.
