Malcolm A. Johnson

Johnson, Malcolm A. “Mal” of Hull, died September 8, 2019.

Mal adored his family, especially being “Papa” to 22 grandchildren. He was a hardworking man that loved to build and fix things. He was always there to help family and friends with a project. Mal proudly served in the United States Army during Vietnam and worked at the Langham Hotel in Boston as the head of the engineering department for 27 years. He was a joker with a great sense of humor, especially with his famous line “don’t worry, we’re calling the ‘toe’ truck”.
