The life of the late George Wellington Malone was celebrated at the St. George’s Episcopal Anglican Church on 3 October.
Mr. Malone who was better known as “Pigmouth” was born on 2 June 1943; he was the oldest of David Walters Malone and Anna Agusta Malone’s five children.
As a young boy he attended the Road Town Primary, which was located on part of the now Elmore Stoutt High School grounds. Upon the completion of his schooling his mother pressured him to take up a trade. Therefore, he took a keen interest in the construction field.
In 1965 he met and married Lola M. Davies from East End; out of the happy union five children were born. Later in life the skills honed from his farming experience with his father enabled him to become a butcher. He butchered the animals he raised and sold the meat on Saturdaymornings at the market place. Later, he established his own butcher shop. He also decided to try his hand as a chef and opened his own bar and restaurant on Main Street in the 70s.
He became an activist in 1976, when he joined Noel Lloyd and the Positive Actions Movement in the fight against Governor Codmore for the land on Wickham’s Cay and Anegada. Mr. Malone was a very humble and God-fearing man. His greatest accomplishments were being a great father, and a loving husband to his family.
