Malcolm K. Bouyea Jr., 66

Malcolm K. Bouyea Jr., 66 of North Granville, N.Y., passed away Sunday, Feb. 1, 2009 at Glens Falls Hospital surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Springfield, Mass., on Nov. 24, 1942, he was the only child of the late Malcolm and Helen Bouyea.

He is survived by his loving wife of more than 40 years, Sharon (Pauquette) Bouyea; their three children, Kimberly Duryea, and her husband Kirk, of Crocker, Mo.; Brian Bouyea and his wife Sandra (Crist) of East Greenbush, N.Y.; and Kevin Bouyea and his wife Laura (Waite) of Queensbury, N.Y.; along with five beloved grandchildren: Abbie, Megan, Ethan, Kevin and Kileigh. There was also a special place in Mal’s heart for his beloved cat, Mika.

He graduated St. John’s Academy in Plattsburgh, N.Y., before serving honorably in the United States Army. He then completed a 36 year career with the New York State Department of Corrections, retiring in 2002 as the Fire & Safety Officer at Washington Correctional Facility in Comstock. Malcolm also actively served as a volunteer firefighter in the North Granville Hose Company for over twenty-five years.

“Mal” loved his family more than life itself. He was a big man with an even bigger heart. He enjoyed hunting with his sons and was an avid New York Yankees fan. Upon his retirement, he and Sharon enjoyed traveling with each other and friends, especially to casinos. He also took pleasure in the camaraderie of his Monday night poker gatherings.

Friends may call from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday at Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St. Granville.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 5 at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, 23 Bulkley Ave., Granville, NY. Friends and family are invited to a reception immediately following Mass at the North Granville Community Center, Route 22, North Granville, N.Y.

Family would like to extend sincere thanks to his primary physician, Dr. John Sawyer, and the wonderful and caring staff of the Glens Falls Hospital ICU.

Contributions may be made in Mal’s memory to St. Mary’s Church, 23 Bulkley Ave., Granville or the North Granville Hose Company, Inc., Route 22, North Granville, N.Y.
