Donald "Scott" Malcolm of Kingman entered into the gates of Heaven on July 31, 2014. Scott was born on April 1, 1960, to Raymond P. Malcolm and Ellen F. Malcolm (Cutshaw).

He moved to Fletcher, N.C., at a young age and attended Balfour Elementary and then moved back to California, where he attended Rialto Elementary, Rialto Junior High and Fontana High (class of 1978).

Scott had an assortment of hobbies that included coin collecting, swap meets, scrap yards, gardening and fishing. But his most favorite hobby was working on old cars and building motors. He was one heck of a mechanic.

Scott was truly a man of God and always thought of and took care of everyone else first before himself.

He never met a stranger, always stopping to talk to anyone (his nickname as a kid was "motor mouth").

Scott had various jobs growing up. At age 12 he started working in the family-owned Chicken Coop business, yard dog for trucking company, and Alcoa Aluminum Foundry, all in California. Around 1982 is when Scott moved to Holbrook and worked as a gas station attendant and later moved to Seligman and started working for Chemical Lime Plant (Peach Springs) as a lube mechanic.

In 1992, Scott began his truck-driving career at Swire Coca Cola as a full service driver and later bulk driver. He then went to PepsiCo, True Value Dist., Interstate Dist., McKee Food's, Sunshine Concrete, CTI Trucking and last for Bulk Transportation.

Scott was preceded in death by his father, Raymond Sr.; Grandpa and Grandma Malcolm; Grandpa and Grandma Cutshaw; aunts, Cara Shipman and Velma Cutshaw; uncles, William, Garrison and Ross Cutshaw; and a cousin, Nathan Cutshaw.

Scott is survived by his wife of 17 years, Roberta; sons Jeffrey and Danny, all of Kingman; his mom and stepdad, Ellen and Jeff Bryant (Pahrump, Nev.); brother, Raymond Malcolm Jr. (Dearborn, Mich.); sister, Karen Urbanek (Las Vegas, Nev.); grandma, Marguerite Bryant (Fontana, Calif.); uncle, Dave Bryant (Arizona); uncle, Rab Shipman (Mira Loma, Calif.); aunts, Dottie Cutshaw (Kingman) and Ginny Rushford (Yuma); his favorite cousin, Janice Cutshaw (Kingman); and many other nephews, nieces, cousins, aunts and uncles too numerous to name.

Stepmom, Joy DeRouen (Peach Springs); step-sister June (Marvin) Melton (Yuma); step-brother, Chuck Franke (Chula Vista, Calif.); father-in-law Robert Evans and brother-in-law Jeffrey Evans (Kingman); sister-in-law, Twyla Churchill (Heber Springs, Ark.); and last but not least, best friends, Jeff and Debi Shoopman and their family.

Scott's wife, Roberta, and his boys, Jeffrey and Danny, were his life and he loved them with all his heart.

He will always and forever be in our hearts.

Services will be at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 8, at Praise Chapel, 419 Harrison St. in Kingman with Pastor Alex Wilson officiating.

A private cremation was handled by Sutton Memorial Funeral Home.
