Dear brother of Peter Mallon and his wife Anna of Scotland, Gerard Mallon and his wife Celia of Nova Scotia.

Maurus Edward (Ed) Mallon was born in 1932 in the Scottish seaport of Greenock, second of five children of Peter and Agnes Mallon . Gifted for languages, he took Double Honours in Moderns at the University of Glasgow in 1956. He spent the academic year 1953-54 in Bayonne, France. Following teacher training, he taught for one year in Scotland before he immigrated to Canada in 1958. In 1966 he graduated as Bachelor of Education from the University of Manitoba. World travels inspired most of his 11 books. As a novelist, playwright, short story writer, essayist, poet, humorist and aphorist, this son of poor Scottish workers won a small but solid niche in the annals of English literature.
Respecting Ed’s wishes cremation has taken place. In memoriam donations to World Vision Canada would be gratefully appreciated. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the Valley Funeral Home, Deep River.
