Bruce Boler has relayed the sad news of John’s passing which he received from one of John’s sons, Skander.
David Waterhouse has relayed the sad news of John’s passing which he received from John’s wife, Bini.
Bruce reminds me that:-
John was one of the guiding lights in the success of OTC International and was present pretty much from the beginning of OTCI.
This is to inform you that Ian William Ruthven (“John”) Malcolm, of Woollahra, NSW, Australia, died on 28th February 2021 after a short illness. He is survived by his wife, Bini, and three sons – Robert, David, and Skander.
This is very sad.
I saw John towards the end of last year and we shared some memories of the early days of OTCI.
He appeared to be in good shape. He was as enthusiastic as ever about history generally, and his role in the company and what was happening today.
He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
