John M. Malcomson

July 19, 1972 ~ September 21, 2020 (age 48)


John M. Malcomson, 48, originally of Cannelton, Indiana passed away surrounded by the comfort and company of loved ones on Monday, September 21, 2020 after six years of battling various major health challenges.

He was preceded in death by his father, John A. Malcomson.

He is survived by his mother, Eunice Malcomson; brothers, Ben and Robie Malcomson; daughter, Adalyn; sons, Jacob and Caleb Malcomson; aunt, Judy Melton; uncle, Mike Melton; and cousins, Gretchen, Grant, and Chris.

John’s life was like a book filled with many chapters.  Yet, sadly not enough.

He completed high school and several forms of vocational, medical training.  John spent many years within the medical field at various tiers helping save lives, as well as mentoring others.

A man of action, he was capable of thinking quick on the fly in high traumatic situations which made his career path a perfect fit for him.  John was well-respected for his determination, hard work, intellect, and professionalism.  It is hard not to find a story from someone within the tri-state alone that he did not touch in a positive and inspirational way.

Despite all of his professional accomplishments, John was most proud of his children.  To know that his daughter was growing up and carrying the same fun-loving spirit as he did, his oldest son Jacob following his heart and being a part of the Evansville Police Department, and his youngest son Caleb attending college.  Even more so, John would find out within the past month that he would become a grandfather.

As far as hobbies go, he loved St. Louis Cardinals baseball watching and making multiple trips to games with his family.  John was also a Dallas Cowboys and Indiana Hoosier fan.  He enjoyed listening to various forms of music from rock to country.
