Age 91, went home to be with the Lord on September 6, 2017, after living a life of moral integrity and success in both his personal and professional lives. He was the beloved husband to his wife Evelyn, who predeceased him; beloved father to Craig (Kelley) Mallick, Keith Mallick and Joy Mallick; and beloved grandfather to Emily (Chris) Wenstrom, Rebecca (Jeff) Machusko, Sam Rattray, Nora (Graham) Gajewski, Scott Mallick and Emma Mallick. He was also the beloved brother to the late Edgar (Sue) Mallick; and beloved uncle, friend, and neighbor to many. Born on January 18, 1926 to Nora and Frederick Mallick, he grew up in Ambridge, Pennsylvania. He enrolled in a Navy program that put him through Northwestern University where he earned a degree in electrical engineering. Afterward, he worked his way through Harvard Law School. A devout Christian, he served a series of churches with his stewardship and was an ordained Presbyterian elder for over 30 years. Mr. Mallick joined U.S. Steel's law department in 1949, and he married Evelyn Hill of Emsworth, Pennsylvania in 1950. U.S. Steel transferred him to Birmingham, Alabama in 1955. By 1964 he was named vice president - south of the corporation. The family remained in Birmingham for almost two decades, during which time he became a conscience-prodder amidst the civil rights movement. He was named Birmingham Man of the Year in 1967 for his community service. In 1972, U.S. Steel transferred Mr. Mallick back to Pittsburgh where he was named the corporation's first vice president - environmental control. The corporation subsequently appointed him vice president - public affairs, and sent him to Washington, D.C. in 1979, where he worked until his retirement in 1991. He retired to Hilton Head, South Carolina, where he regularly performed children's magic shows with his wife, Evelyn's assistance. They were known as the “Magic Mallicks.” He ran for, and was elected to, the Hilton Head town council in 1995, where he served Ward 5 faithfully for several terms. As a private citizen, he worked to help the homeless. The Mallicks later moved to Ft. Myers, Florida, and they lived there the rest of their lives. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 320 Sixth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. In lieu of flowers, the family asks anyone who wishes to make a contribution in his honor to do so for a homeless organization in their hometown.
