Tommy Malone, 77, of Pollock, peacefully passed away after a lengthy illness on May 15, 2023.

Tommy was born in Plain Dealing, Louisiana, on August 6, 1945 to Jewel and Oleta Malone. Tommy graduated from Plain Dealing High School in 1963 and soon after joined the LA National Guard. Tommy married Debbie Alexander on December 1966. Together, they built their family in Bossier City, LA until moving to central Louisiana.

Tommy faithfully served our country for 42 years with the LA Army National Guard as a heavy equipment mechanic and excelled in the National Guard’s Marksmanship Team. He participated in an abundant number of local and national Rifle and Pistol Championships earning a collection of Commendation Letters and medals.

An avid hunter, fisherman, and archer Tommy found a calling along with his “partner in crime”, Pat Craig, making recurve bows and arrows. He and Pat were members of Archery in Louisiana Schools (ALAS) and CENLA Bowbenders where they enjoyed coaching, mentoring, hosting events, and donating their bows and arrows to participants in need of equipment and a desire to learn this sport.
