GREEN RIVER - Prominent businessman Malcolm Frank Politano Jr., age 87, passed away Aug. 6, 2009 at his daughter's home in Green River.

He was born March 24, 1922 in Green River to Malcolm Politano Sr. and Rose Vetere. He married his beloved Norma Francis Brock Feb. 12, 1941 in Green River; she passed away on May 18, 2001.

Malcolm was a lifelong resident of Green River, where he and his wife owned and operated the Texaco Service Station and Politano Foodland.

He was a man of great strength, generosity, dedication, and he kept the family legacy going by making sure that no one went hungry. He was an honest and tireless worker who spent countless hours providing for others.

Malcolm believed in hard work and his motto was "there was no such thing as rest."

He had a great passion for horses, music, dancing, and his acts of kindness will never be forgotten.

Malcolm is survived by his daughters, Charlotte (Robert) Williams, Teasdale; and Mary Ann (Lynn) Olsen, Green River; sister, Florence Chido, Littleton, Colo.; nieces, Barbara (Robert) Little, Sandy; JoAnn (Jim) Dawson, Littleton, Colo.; five grandchildren, Bradley, Kenneth and Brian Williams, Brady Olsen and LeiAnn Chidester; and 13 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Norma; brothers, Charlie and Ernest; and sister, Ida Cornick.

Funeral service, Monday, Aug. 10, Green River Bible Church. Interment, Elgin Cemetery, Green River. Arrangements entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home of Price.

In memory of Malcolm, the family would greatly appreciate memorial contributions to the Green River Ambulance Service or the Green River Medical Center.
