Terrence Patrick Malone, beloved husband, father, son, brother, and friend, passed away peacefully on March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day, after a heroic eighteen month battle with cancer. His wife and family were at his side. Terry was 49 years old.
Terry was a lifelong resident of Southern California, born in Los Angeles and growing up in Fountain Valley, he graduated from Fountain Valley High School and attended Cal State University Long Beach. After college, Terry settled in Leucedia, until he moved back to Orange County in 2002, living in Irvine.
Terry was a true ‘Renaissance man,’with wide ranging talents and interests, and successes in a number of fields. He began his working life as a partner in a construction business, then made a successful career in the technology industry. Always a man who followed his heart, Terry’s passion for learning had recently led him to pursue training to become a high school math teacher.
Terry loved politics, sports, music, and film. He loved conversation and the exchange of ideas, and always relished a good spirited debate on any topic!
His life long passions were spending time with his daughter Casey, music, reading, all kinds of sports, and enjoying his family and friends. One of his favorite excursions was an annual familyreuinon to Lake Tahoe, where Terry would rally family members of all ages to join in spirited games of Scrabble, Cribbage, Pinochle and Uno, or find an adventure roller blading, hiking on the ski slopes, or visiting local sites.

    It is with sadness in my heart that I say goodbye to you. You were so talented,type on a computer, hold a landline phone and conversation with the other hand a cell phone and yet another conversation. I will always remember the hamburger dry and the coke that you loved to order. Ashley’s face at 7 years old as you dropped your trousers in your office for a spot of exercise on the stand alone bike. She thinking that you had just underpants on and wondering what the heck you were doing! All was cool, shorts were underneath. You were crazy, great fun, sane, intelligent, humourous and most of all a real compassionate and passionate human being. I and my family will never forget you and we will talk of you often. Rest now.

    Terry’s memory will always reflect the man of passion a strong intensity for life, family, friends, work, sports, politics, and people in general. I lost a brother to melanoma and had admired the same determination I witnessed from Terry in his fight. He was such a strong challenger. Those boxing gloves were well used! God bless and sincere thoughts with his family at this time.

    Terry will live forever in my memory as one of the most passionate people ever to work for me. And passionate about everything! I never saw someone go from laughing to yelling, back to laughing so quickly and easily. And all of it with a red face and twinkle in his eye.

    The only guy to play golf at a Celebrity Players Tour event and KNOCK OUT a spectator!

    I will treasure our time together forever.
