Raymond Bernard Malark
Died peacefully October 3, 2015 at home, surrounded by his loving family at age 81. Ray was born September 19, 1934 in Northeast Minneapolis, the 9th of 12 children of Andrew and Cecilia Malark.
He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Margaret; daughter, Elizabeth Malark; sons, Greg (Judy) Malark and Doug (Sheryl) Malark; and daughter, Maria Malark (Steve Sinton); and six grandchildren: Aaron, Katie, Elliot, Ethan, Emily and Hannah. He is further survived by his brother, Richard (Audrey) Malark and sister, Margaret (Tom) Strauss, and many other family and friends.
After graduation from St. Thomas Academy, Ray served in the Air Force. He married the love of his life, Margaret, in 1958. He later managed and eventually owned Tersch Products, Inc.
He loved supporting his Minnesota sports teams and golfing; but more importantly, spending time with his family. He was a kind man, who quietly helped and supported those around him. He is at peace now with his Lord, and he will be deeply missed.
