Obituary

Malcolm Duncan Grandy, Jr. of Wellesley and Sandwich, passed away Sunday, June 28, 2020, at Cape Cod Hospital. Born in Boston, June 24, 1942, the son of Malcolm Duncan Grandy, Sr. and Alice Hogan Grandy.

Malcolm was raised in Wellesley and attended Wellesley Senior High School where he was a standout athlete as a member of the varsity football, baseball, gym and swim teams.

He was a natural athlete holding awards in swimming, diving and javelin throwing. An avid sportsman his whole life, Malcolm was an impressive golfer, fisherman, yachtsman and white-water rafter. Throughout the years, he routinely attended the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta.

Malcolm served in the United States Army in Fulda, Germany where he was responsible for driving an M60 Tank on the front lines of the Fulda Gap. While on leave, he became a skilled skier in the German and French Alps.

After serving his country honorably for six years, Malcolm returned home to become a member of the International Carpenters Union where he participated in numerous rewarding projects throughout the Boston area. He spent time on Martha’s Vineyard, in the seventies, living in Gay Head and enjoyed all the amenities the island had to offer.

He was an amazing father, grandfather, brother, and friend with a great joy for living, whose life ended too soon.

A larger than life character, Malcolm was a handsome, competitive free spirit. He was a lover of people, drawing others in with his gregarious charisma, compassion, generosity and loyalty. Malcolm quickly made friends wherever he went.

He enjoyed his retirement on his beloved Cape Cod, spending time with his family and friends, following his beloved Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, and Boston Bruins. He was an honorary member of the Bulk Head Coffee Klutch, meeting every morning and fishing for stripers at the Cape Cod Canal or at the beautiful Scorton Creek.

Malcolm was preceded in death by his father Malcolm Duncan Grandy, Sr. his mother Alice Hogan Grandy of Wellesley, Massachusetts, and his sister Judith Grandy Benton of Augusta, Georgia.

Survived by his son Malcolm Duncan Grandy III, daughter Deborah Parsons Twombley, grandchildren Malcolm IV, Jacqueline Rose Grandy, and James Twombley, sisters Deborah Grandy and Diane Grandy Smigel and many nieces, nephews and cousins (especially the Benton, Brebbia and Galvin families) all of whom held him in high regard.

Malcolm will be greatly missed by all his family and the many friends who loved him and cherished his friendship.

Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated Friday, July 3rd at St Paul's Parish, Wellesley followed by interment at Woodlawn Cemetery, Wellelsey.
