I was devastated when I learned that Tom had passed away. A former Superintendent of Frederick County Schools, a fellow Rotarian, but most importantly a wonderful friend to so many. This is almost too much to believe. Tom was one of those people that you expect to be here forever - always upbeat, happy, and bringing joy to so many people. I think his true legacy will be his love of kids, my son Michael included. All of our lives are so much richer for having known Tom. Rest in peace, dear friend! Rich Reedy

Twenty years ago Tom Malcolm provided guidance to me as a new superintendent. His love of children and his skills at working with people were models for many of us in public education. Tom was devoted to his family, his community, and Frederick County's school children. His voice and his wisdom will be missed. May God comfort Carolyn and their children in this time of loss.

Iremember "Mr. Malcolm" from when I was younger as my principal at Senseny Road Elem. School in 1966. As the years went on, he became a close family friend to my parents,Eugene and Lucy Oldt. He was a very loving and caring person and a pleasure to be around. He was always willing to help and never hesitated when I asked him to be a pallbearer at my mother's funeral. He will be greatly missed!! Virginia Compton "peachie"

Tom and I played basketball in high school together and had fun doing what boys did in the 1950s and early 1960s. He was a great guy, quality person, and special friend.

I had the privilege to meet Mr and Mrs. Malcolm and their children and oldest grand daughter as one of his nurses. Mrs. Malcolm stayed day and night in his hospital room and was a remarkable, loving caretaker. They celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary in the hospital with a bouquet of 47 spectacular long stem red roses in a giant fishbowl vase. I believe Mr. Malcolm's sister was responsible for the flowers. While working with Mr. Malcolm, I learned a lot about his life, career and hobbies. I knew he was a very special man. We had some good laughs together also. I am sorry the treatment he received with us did not help him. I am sending the Malcolm family my sincere condolences. Judith Reiter RN

Mr. Malcolm spoke with me when I was being recruited to play basketball at Shenandoah University. I felt comfortable taking his advice because he too was a Paw Paw West Virginia resident and understood what probably was best for me. Now I am a teacher myself. Thanks Mr. Malcolm and may you rest in peace. Rob Spencer Sr.

I grew up across the road from Tommy in Paw Paw, WV and was best friends with his sister Bonnie. I also knew Carolyn ("Butch) his wife. I remember in high school Tommy was a great basketball player. When his sister Bonnie got married in Winchester, my husband, Charlie, and I were in the wedding party and stayed overnight with him & Carolyn and will always remember "the feather bed". We express our deepest sympathy to Carolyn and Tommy's children and extended family.

I met Tom on my first day at Senseny Road School as a new teacher.

His leadership, sincerity and vision will long be remembered in Frederick County and he will be sorely missed. May God's blessing comfort Carolyn, Mary, Mark and family.

I will never forget my first day of kindergarten at Senseny Road, I saw Mr. Malcolm. I was scared at first because he was so big but wasn't long that I found he was a very gentle kind man. I am so saddened by the passing of Mr. Malcolm, Frederick County has lost a wonderful man who truly loved children and always put us first! My condolences go out to his family, but there is no doubt in my mind he is wrapped in God's arms at peace. Robin Howett
