Malcolm S. Bardin


Malcolm S. Bardin, 88, of County Route 43, Argyle, passed away peacefully at the Glens Falls Hospital on Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2008.

Born on February 15, 1920 in Hartford, N.Y., he was the son of the late Leon and Margaret (Bardwell) Bardin.

Malcolm attended school in Granville.

He was inducted into the United States Army in 1943, serving during World War II, and is a proud veteran of the Battle of the Bulge.  Malcolm continued to show his support for our country by his longtime membership in the American Legion Post #1133 in Hudson Falls.

On October 24, 1967 Malcolm married Barbara L. Villa in Fair Haven, Vt.  

Malcolm ran Bardin’s Service Station in Granville for several years. He then went on to own and operate Bardin’s Grocery on the Boulevard in Hudson Falls for many years. In 1982, Malcolm retired from Scott Paper in Fort Edward after 20 years of service.

Malcolm loved his home, working in his yard, and flower gardening.  He also liked to travel; he and Barbara would often take rides together and they enjoyed having dinner out. 

Malcolm was a very kind and caring person.  He was always doing something for someone.

Besides his parents he was predeceased by his three brothers, Kenneth Bardin, Ernest Bardin, and Clarence Bardin; and one sister, Ethel LaPointe. 

Survivors include his loving wife of 41 years Barbara L. Bardin; his daughter, Diane Mercure and her husband Ronald of Hartford; his children, Barbara J. Bardin and David E. Bardin of Vermont; his grandchildren, Laurie Keating and her husband Bill and Brian Mercure and his wife Lori; his great-grandchildren, Amber Lindgren and her husband Mark, Cameron Ellis, Ashley Mercure, Matthew Mercure, Travis Ellis, Morgan Mercure, Alaina Keating, and Liam Keating; one great-great-grandson, Austin Wells. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Friends and family were invited to call from 11 a.m. until 12 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 8 at the M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 123 Main Street Argyle, NY.   Online condolences may be sent through our new website at www.kilmerfuneralhome.com. 

Funeral Services were conducted at 12 p.m. following calling hours in the funeral home with the Rev. John Greenough, pastor of the Hartford United Methodist Church, officiating.  Burial followed in Union Cemetery, Fort Edward.

Donations may be made in Malcolm’s memory to the Argyle Emergency Squad, Inc., 248 Pleasant Valley Road, Argyle, NY 12809 or to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Upstate New York Chapter, P.O. Box 23746, Rochester, NY 14692-3746.
