Today, the angels called to claim one of their own. He will suffer no more.

Malcolm Junior Branham, 79, of Plymouth, passed on September 28, 2019, at Stein Hospice, in Sandusky. He was born to William and Dollie (Case) Branham in Drift, Kentucky, on November 25, 1939.

Malcolm retired from MTD Shelby, in 2001. He was a sportsman of all kinds, from basketball and baseball to hunting to golf, and he did them all well. Since July 25, 1981, Malcom was a member of Little Rebecca Old Regular Baptist Church in Plymouth. His true passion was the one love of his life, Betty June Cook, and they were married in Clintwood, Virginia, on July 1, 1961. Malcolm is survived by his wife and six children. Michael (Shari) Branham, of Shelby, Tina Branham, of Plymouth, Darren (Kari) Branham, of Ypsilanti, Michigan, Rhonda Mutchler, of Plymouth, Lavonne (Clarence) Wolfe, of Yuma, Arizona, and Glenda Branham, of Plymouth. He was adored by his 17 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren (number 14 is expected this coming Christmas Eve), who called him "Pop pop", "papa", and "grandpa". He was always there with an encouraging word and a gentle, guiding hand.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers Johnny (Hilda) Branham, of Virginia, Elzie (Mae), of Indiana, and Carlos Branham, of Willard, his sister Arcolas (Johnny) Goble, of Willard, and three sisters in infancy. He was also preceded by his son in law, Patrick Mutchler, and his granddaughter, Sydney Marie Downing.

He is also survived by his loving sisters, Hazel (John) Elkins, of Greenup, Kentucky, and Addie (Bob) Langley, of Willard, and his supportive brothers, Donald (Linda) Branham, of Plymouth, and Ronnie (Gracie) Branham, of Shelby. He is also survived by his sister-in-law, Edna Branham of Willard.

Visitation will continue at the Little Rebecca Old Regular Baptist Church in Plymouth, Ohio, from 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM, where a church service will be at 6:00 PM.
