Great Lakes Boat Building School

Board of Directors Treasurer Passes after 12 Years of Service

It is with great sadness that we advise you of the passing of our own treasurer, Greg Malcho. He has been the most tenured director of our school (twelve years) and has selflessly devoted many, many hours to the school’s success. Our most sincere condolences to Greg’s family.

-Joseph D. Reid, Board of Directors Chairman, GLBBS

Greg Malcho, age 78 died Feb. 1st while in Florida. Beloved husband of Beth for 53 years. Dear father of Brent, Matthew (Nora) and Amy (Dan) Totonchi. Loving grandfather of Christy, Elise, and Ella Malcho and Brian and Jack Totonchi. Brother of Chuck and the late Brian, step brother of Nancy Van Deusen.

A graduate of U of M, he was a whiz with numbers and retired after 35 years with the Ford Motor Company in various areas of finance, ending his career in food services.  He was treasurer for the Board of the Ford Yacht Club on Grosse Ile as well as his condo association in Florida.  The endeavor he was most proud of was his involvement with the Great Lakes Boat Building School in the Les Cheneaux Islands where he served as treasurer for 12 years.

Greg loved his family, life in general, spending time in Hessel and especially anywhere on a boat.
