    We regret to advise of the death of Captain Malvern “Mal” Leslie Davies (Ret’d) at the Southwood Hospice in Calgary AB on 24 September 2006 on his 85th birthday.

    Malvern was born in Winnipeg MB but grew up in Calgary where he attended Western Canada High School.  He then attended the Royal Military College in Kingston ON from August 1940 to July 1942--the last war class.  He joined the Royal Canadian Engineers and did his initial training at the Engineer Training Centre at Chilliwack BC.  He proceeded to England where he continued his training at the Engineering Holding Unit at Cove, Hampshire.  Mal landed in Normandy on D-Day and fought across France, Holland and Germany.

    After the war, Mal returned to Calgary and completed his engineering degree at the University of Alberta.  He then joined the family-owned Valley Gas Company in the Turner Valley AB and was President for many years.  Mal was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion for 65 years.

    A Memorial Service will be held at First Memorial Funeral Services, 240 - 17 Avenue S.W., Calgary on 27 September.  Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Calgary & District Unit Office.  {gdSep2016kh}
