Malcolm Peacock

I was very sorry to read of the passing of Malcolm Peacock (obituary). Malcolm was a long time volunteer at the New Brunswick Railway Museum and lent his skills as an electrician and general handyman to a variety of tasks. The obituary describes Malcolm as "stubborn and steadfast, quiet and proud of country and kin" and I think that is a good description. Malcolm was quiet but friendly, held strong to his beliefs, and didn't suffer fools. He was kind enough to let me stay in his caboose at the museum a few times when I was visiting there. He kept it in great condition and was very proud of it.

I considered him a friend and I will miss him.
