Malcom Leo Sevrin, age 93, passed away on January 10, 2021 at his home in Gallatin, Tennessee. He was born in Newark, NJ in 1927. Before graduation from Irvington High School in 1945 he joined the Navy and was Honorably Discharged in 1946. He was proud of his and his families service to his country which extended to his son David, who served in the Marine Corps. and his stepson Michael who served in the Air Force.

After he left the service, he received a 4-year degree in 3 years from Upsala College - NJ and ultimately earned a CPA. He formed his own accounting firm in Westfield, NJ in the 1960's. In the early 70's he began a career with the Wakefern Corporation (Shoprite) as an accountant and became President of the "Food Haulers" division in the mid 70's. After his tenure with Wakefern he successfully operated his own trucking company (LLD Trucklines) until he retired in the early 90's.

He had a large family and is survived by his loving wife Helen Sevrin. His children include daughters, Lauren Sevrin, Leslie Bonito and Lynn Lande; sons, David Sevrin and Aubin Sevrin; stepsons; Kevin and Michael Spencer. He had 13 grandchildren, Jessica Sevrin, AJ Sevrin, Carissa Sevrin, Benjamin Lande, Anna Lande, Jonathan Spencer, Amanda Spencer, Brooke Spencer, Joshua Sevrin, Russel Spencer, Addison Sevrin, Emma Spencer, and Eden Spencer. He was also preceded in death by parents, Louis and Minna (Strauss) Sevrin; his sister, Anne Levy; his son, David Sevrin and grandson, Jonathan Spencer.

He loved sports and played golf and tennis with friends as often as possible. He hit a hole in one to his own surprise. He also enjoyed travel and even late in life visited Alaska and Africa. He was passionate about a wide range of topics and always enjoyed a thrilling debate about politics and world events. His favorite topic was chatting about his friends and family.

He only stood 5 feet 10 inches tall, but he was a big man in all our lives, and we love him dearly. He will be greatly missed by so many.

Our condolences to the Sevrin family. Malcom was a wonderful person whom I had several great conversations about politics, flying, and family. One of many happy memories come to mind when reflecting about Malcom. He welcomed me into his home in Florida many years ago and treated me like part of his family during my several day visit. I’ll never forget the hospitality and the excellent dinner we had. Rest in peace sir.

This man, my father, I recall dragging my mother upstairs by her hair on on rainy, stormy night when she said she would take us kids to her parents in Irvington. He came into my bedroom and yanked the covers off me. His sister, Ann, defended him when he’d admitted choking me. When I finally, after decades, revealed these stories and others to my sisters and cousin they denied me. Decades ago when I mentioned similar to Helen, his wife, she dismissed me. May Malcolm rot in hell and my complicit sisters and cousin as well.

I’m very sorry to read about Malcom’s passing. I was friends with his son, David throughout junior and senior high school. David and I joined the National Guard together. I remember Malcolm was always there with great advice and a great spirit. I looked up to him during throughout my high school years. Condolences to Lynn and Leslie and the rest of the family and friends.
