Malachi Springer

October 31 1985 – May 28 2018


Memorial Day is a day that is set aside to remember and honor the people who died while serving for this great country.  On this sacred day, we say goodbye to our cherished son and brother, Malachi Springer.  Although he never served in a regular Army, he served in the ultimate army of God.  In Malachi’s own eloquent words- He works at- “Wherever God needs my services to be deployed.”  As many family and friends can tell you, he followed this phrase to a T.


Malachi will be remembered by many for his tireless efforts to preserve the history of WWI, WWII, and the 1940’s era.  His quiet demeanor and never-ending patience with all the veterans will never be forgotten.  He had impeccable taste and an unbelievable eye for all things 40’s.  The vintage world lost a great historian and part of them.  What a sight it must have been to see all the veterans who have gone on before him, greeting Malachi as he walked through the Pearly Gates on to the streets of Gold!


Malachi means ‘Messenger of God’. The outpouring of testimonies that we continue to hear, assures us that he truly was Gods Messenger.  All say that he was too young to go, yet he accomplished so much for God in his short life.  His battle here on Earth is over.  Malachi closed his eyes and, in an instant, he heard God say,

Well done, thou good and faithful servant:

thou hast been faithful over a few things,

I will make thee ruler over many things:

Enter thou into the joy of the Lord.

Matthew 25:21

At the same time that Malachi is hearing these beautiful words in heaven, we are being filled with God’s everlasting peace and comfort.


Well done Malachi, you fought the good fight.  Now is time for you to rest in God’s loving arms and be happy and content for eternity.  We are all so proud of you!  We miss you more than words can express but we rest easy knowing that we also have the promise of eternal life.  We look forward to the day that you meet us at the Pearly Gates!  Until then, your torch for God has not fallen but been passed on repeatedly.  We will carry on.


Dance Malachi Dance, in your tuxedo on the streets of Gold with all the angels.  Your light shines upon us and is always in our hearts.  We will always love you Malachi.
