Obituary for Thomas Charles Malley

Tom passed away surrounded by loving family members on Aug. 24, 2018, after a brief illness.

He is survived by his wife, Betty, of Clearlake; son, Robert Sr. (Debi) of Clearlake; Rick’s widow, Carol, of Sparks, Nev.; son, Tom of Blue Lakes, Calif.; and son, Tim (Leslie) of Anchorage, Alaska; three stepchildren, Sue (Rick) Hall of Snohomish, Wash., Robert Bise Jr. of Lakeport, Calif., and Karen (Josh) Sheppard of Clearlake; along with 21 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents, Bernard and Louise; his son, Rick; and his first wife, Lee Malley.

Tom was born May 20, 1928, in Cleveland, Ohio, the seventh of nine children born to Bernard Malley and Louise Hughes Malley.

The family moved to San Francisco when Tom was 15. While living in San Francisco he met and married Leila “Lee” Bouscaren in 1949.

In 1966 they moved to Clearlake where they raised their sons. After Lee’s death in 1989, Tom married Betty Compton Bise.

Tom retired after a 37-year career with Safeway, but he did not slow down.

After retirement, Tom directed his formidable energy toward helping his community and to attending as many family and Lower Lake High school events as possible.

He was very instrumental in the restoration of the Lower Lake Museum. He was on the Lower Lake Cemetery board for several years and, along with a friend, built the rock wall at the entrance to the cemetery.

He was very involved in his church, Lower Lake Methodist, and spent countless hours on various church projects.

He was an avid San Francisco Giants fan and was thrilled to be able to have his 90th birthday party at a Giants game at AT&T Park.

Tom will be most remembered for his wonderful smile, his kindness and his love of his family.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Sept. 1, at 1 p.m. at Jones and Lewis Memorial Chapel, 16140 Main St., Lower Lake.

There will be a gathering with refreshments to follow at the Brick Hall in Lower Lake.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Lower Lake Methodist Church, P.O. Box 516, Lower Lake, CA 95457.
