Jon Malecker Obituary
9/13/1952 - 3/10/2014
Our very sweet and dear husband, father, brother, uncle and friend passed away unexpectedly on March 10, 2014.
Far and away the most important thing in his life were his two sons, he lived for them. Jon was the nicest, most trusting man anyone would ever want to know. Always treating everyone with the utmost respect, he strived to make others happy and never did he let anyone down. Famous for his 1-iron shots, Jon was a talented golfer and gifted athlete. In 1972 he won the Utah Junior Open golf tournament. Jon was always intrigued with real estate and he loved the stock market.
Jon is survived by his wife Leslie; sons Mat and Alex; and sister Jan (Darlene). Jon will forever be in our hearts. We are sure that he is watching over us while listening to The Beatles, Jackson Browne, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan. Somewhere he is ordering a cheeseburger with no cheese.
There will be a celebration of life on Sunday, March 16th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, a few words will be spoken beginning at 7:30 PM at Starks Funeral Parlor, 3651 South 900 East, Salt Lake City. The burial will be on Monday, March 17th at 1:00 PM at Salt Lake City Cemetery, 4th Ave "N" Street, Salt Lake City.
Online condolences may be offered to the family at www.starksfuneral.com

I lost touch with Jon after High School except for a chance meeting at Smiths on 9th and 9th a few years ago.  He looked the same which I certainly cannot claim.  In his youth, he was a very kind and generous friend who lived to watch Jonny Carson and had the newest Beatles alblum within hours of its release.  Girls always followed him around but he was too shy to follow up.  We were picked by the police for a host of incidents but between us we were always able to talk our way out of trouble.  The day I meet Jon at Smiths he gave me his number and told me to call but as usual I lost it along with a chance to find out how his life had turned out.  Sorry Jon, I let you down.
