It is with great sadness that the family of Colby James Mallery announces his passing at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital, on Wednesday, December 29th, 2021, at the age of 77. Born in Clones, NB, on June 17th, 1944, he was the husband of the late Marlene (Webster) Mallery of Midland.
Colby leaves behind his three daughters, Melissa Mehan (Jeremy) of NB, Sarah Mallery (Neil Martin) of NS, and Katie Mallery (Christopher Plourde) of BC; sister, Joan Gaunce (John) of NB; granddaughters, McKinley & Malia Mehan. Colby was predeceased by his parents, James "Jim" and Gladys (Pevlin) Mallery; and wife Marlene (Webster) Mallery.
Colby was affectionately known as Dad, Daddy Bear, and Grampie. He worked as a woodsman, and in farming, construction and security. His passions were farming, maintaining his tractors, being outdoors, hunting, fishing, his cats and German Shepherds but, most of all, he adored his three daughters and family life. He was over joyed with becoming a grandfather.
Special thanks to his home care and the staff of the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital.
A graveside service will be held at the Upper Gagetown Cemetery on Monday, June 20, 2022, at 1 pm with Rev. Jane Johnston officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations in Colby's memory can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
