Malcolm Seymour Krongelb

Malcolm Seymour Krongelb died peacefully at home with his beloved, Judy, at his side on March 8, 2021. Born in January 1946 in Ft. Oglethorpe, Georgia, where his father was stationed, Malcolm soon moved to Brooklyn, New York with his family.

Malcolm graduated from Erasmus Hall High School, Brooklyn, in 1962. At Brooklyn College, he sang in the choir and was a member of the Open Road Club. He graduated with a bachelor’s of science degree in Chemistry from Brooklyn College in 1966. He received an MA in Biochemistry from Brandeis University and later an MS in Communications from Boston University. At Brandeis, he met the love of his life, Judy. They spent the next 53 years together, living in Weston, then Acton, Massachusetts, and traveling the world.

Between his international marketing work for Digital Equipment Corporation and his leisure travels with Judy, Malcolm traveled to 137 countries and all 50 states. His trips took him to every continent, to enjoy the beauty of the varied landscapes, for the diverse wildlife, for the indigenous cultures and especially for solar eclipses (they’ve seen 10). Malcolm was a master storyteller and a talented photographer, and his narrated travelogues were widely anticipated and enjoyed by countless family members, friends and colleagues over the years.

Despite ongoing health challenges, Malcolm continued to travel to exotic destinations and to visit friends.
After retirement, Malcolm began volunteering at Household Goods in Acton. This year’s annual report will feature Malcolm in their Volunteer Profile. In its write-up, the agency stated, “Whatever needs doing, Malcolm has been willing and ready to take it on. Never shy to take on responsibility, Malcolm served as the Manager on Duty on both Thursday and Saturday afternoons for over 10 years.” He also filled in as truck driver for donation pickup, served as co-chair of the Communications Team and worked at numerous special events. The agency noted, “Malcolm’s ‘can do’ attitude and dedication have made a long-lasting impact on the success of Household Goods.”

He also enjoyed joining Judy for club events in her antique MG and going to her annual CS-MANTECH conference.

Malcolm is survived by Judy; his sister, Dory; and many dear friends and relatives. He is predeceased by his parents, Roz and Irving Krongelb, and his brother, Stanley.

In lieu of flowers, Malcolm would appreciate your contribution to Household Goods, 530 Main St, Acton, MA; 978-635-1710.

As a long time volunteer and board member, I enjoyed knowing and volunteering with Malcom over the years at HouseholdGoods which occasionally included a chat about the days at DEC (where I also worked for a while). I know he struggled with the medical issues but saw how he did not let that stop him from volunteering and making a difference. We will miss him at HouseholdGoods. Condolences to Judy and family.
