Malcolm was born March 20, 1964, at Cavalier to Lester “Scotty” and Mary (Teie) Greenwood. He lived his entire life in Backoo. After graduating from Cavalier High School in 1982, he spent a few years working as a carpenter before learning the floor covering installation trade which he worked at for over 30 years and eventually started his own business, “Mac’s Floor Covering.” On January 28, 1984, he married Amber (Nupdal) Greenwood, and during their 20 year marriage, they lived in Backoo where they raised their two children, Mitchell and Alicia. He enjoyed the simple things in life. He took great pride in his yard and gardens. He loved to spend time visiting with friends and neighbors. He got a thrill out of going to auction sales to see what kind of treasures he could find and bring home. Most of all, he loved to spend time with his family.

Survivors include his children: Mitchell (Alicia Busch- Fiance) Greenwood, Watford City and Alicia Greenwood, Grand Forks; grandson Uriah Greenwood; siblings: Jerry (Carol) Greenwood, Backoo; David (Anna) Greenwood, Peublo, Colo.; and Trudy (Randy) Robinson, Hensel, along with many other nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Preceding him in death were his parents.
