William Malone

Died May 21, 2013

SCOTLAND, Ind. — William Forest Malone, 69, born in Scotland, Ind., to Ernest C. and Hazel I. (Woodruff) Malone, passed from this life after a brief illness at his home on Tuesday. Bill attended Scotland Elementry School and graduated from Bloomfield High School in 1961. He entered the U.S. Air Force the week after his high school graduation. He proudly served his country from 1961 to 1965. During his military time he was awarded the Small Arms Expert Marksman Ribbon, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, the Air Force Longevity Service Award, and the Air Force Good Conduct Medal. He was a member of the American Legion, the VFW, and the Indiana Free Masons, Newberry Lodge. Bill returned to his parents home, now living in Odon, after his service time. He worked for Hoefling Truck and Tractor in Odon for a short time before beginning a long career with the Westinghouse Electric Corp. in Bloomington. Bill enjoyed every minute of his 35-year-long employment with Westinghouse, which later became ABB. He worked his way up to production manager and made many lifelong friends during this time. With the closing of the Bloomington plant Bill was sent to Florida to manage the struggling ABB plant at Lake Mary. In the 10 months he worked in Florida he turned the plant around to a productive business with a safe, friendly work environment. When he reached retirement age he sadly had to leave ABB and begin another phase of his life. He looked forward to meeting with his friends at Tooties Cafe each morning for coffee and current events. After the cafe closed a group of Scotland friends started serving breakfast at the fire station. He was involved with the “breakfast club” and again enjoyed the time with friends. To keep himself busy during retirement he started a self-storage business at Crane, Indiana. M and M Storage has allowed him to make many new friends while keeping him involved with a business. He spent most of his time mowing his large yard, which he loved doing. He spent almost all of the summer daylight hours outside sprucing up something on his property near Scotland or organizing tools in his pole barn. He also loved taking his grandsons to Gatlinburg, Tenn., and watch them have fun. Bill was married to Nancy (Trueblood) Malone on Oct. 8, 1966, and she survives. He is also survived by daughter Cami (Malone) Mattingly, son-in-law Larry Mattingly, grandson Drew Mattingly, grandson Luke Oliphant, and former son-in-law Scott Oliphant, all of Bloomfield. Other survivors are brother Ernie Malone, sister-in-law Brenda Malone, of West Virginia, aunt Ellen Roark of Elnora, in-laws: Patty (Trueblood) Malone, Mike Trueblood of Newberry, Linda (Trueblood) Horn, Diana (Trueblood) Sheetz and Howard and Linda Trueblood of Odon; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Darlene (Malone) Strauser, brothers-in-law, Donald Strauser, Jim Malone, Ed Horn, Keith Sheetz; sister-in-law Susie Trueblood; mother- and father-in-law, Carl and Donna Trueblood, and nephew Bill Horn. In 2007 Bill and Nancy’s hearts were broken with the passing of their younger daughter Erin Michelle Malone Oliphant. Bill’s survivors take comfort in knowing that he and Erin are together once again. Visitation will be Saturday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Jenkins and Sons Funeral Home in Bloomfield. During the visitation at 5 p.m. a memorial service will be conducted by Pastor Carl Fields. Cremation will follow with burial at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family wishes all donations be made to the St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Online condolences to the family can be made at www.jenkinsfuneralhomes.com
