Mr. John Albert Malone was born August 20,1953 in Gary, Indiana to the late Mr. Nathaniel Malone Sr. and Mrs. Marie Burns Malone.
John A. Malone received Christ at an early age. He was a member of Haven United Methodist Church in Alexander City, Alabama. John attended Laurel High School and later went to Trade School. There, he received a certificate for Auto Mechanic. John was a great Auto Mechanic.
There was one time when Michael Scott and John A. Malone, two first cousins, were traveling down the highway coming from Springfield, Massachusetts heading to Opelika, Alabama where Michael Scott lived. The car ran hot and broke down on the side of the highway, they were about an hour away from Opelika. So, anyway Michael Scott said, “He and John got out of the car and looked underneath the hood. Then John looked around on the ground and picked up a stick and took a rubber band and connected it to the car and started the car up and it brought them all the way home to Opelika.”
That sounds like Mac Gyver the TV Star to me. “A Great Mechanic.”
John was preceded in death by his father, Mr. Nathaniel Malone, Sr. and Mother, Mrs. Marie Burns Malone. One son, Juan Di’Giovanni Malone, Sr. (whom mother was the late Beverly Hawthorne) . 2 brothers: Henry L. Malone and Joseph F. Malone. 2 sisters: Charlie Lee Williams and Marie A. Malone (Tina).
