Malvin married Ruth Wert, New Year’s Eve December 31, 1940, at the Redeemer Lutheran Church Parsonage in Wayne. They farmed near Altona, Pender, and then the home place for many years before moving into Wayne. He began farming with horse teams and graduated to tractors. He loved growing crops, animals, and his family. Malvin loved life, always enjoying a good story or visit with family, friends and even strangers. He was so proud of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, being entertained by their antics. His constant companion and true love was his wife, Ruth until her death in 2011. In their later years, Malvin and Ruth enjoyed touring the countryside, photographing windmills and watching countless parades. Malvin went home from each parade with fresh candy to satisfy his sweet tooth. He was a past member of Redeemer Lutheran Church and present member of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Wayne.
Malvin is survived by his children, Art (Diana) Bruns of Wayne and Jayne (Edgar) Clemens of Oshkosh; daughter-in-law, Dyleen Bruns of Norfolk; sister-in-law, Betty Bruns of South Dakota; and a wonderful array of grandchildren, great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews.
