Obituary for Bryan Lee Maleckar

Bryan Lee Maleckar, 61, of Georgetown, SC, passed away peacefully at home, June 25, 2019 after a difficult battle with lung cancer. He was born on November 5, 1957, in Elizabeth, NJ to the late John V. & Lois H. Maleckar and grew up in Springfield, NJ. In 1974, Bryan moved to Florence, SC with his parents and graduated from Southside High School the following year. He attended Florence Darlington Tech, earning a certificate in electrical engineering. In 1980, Bryan moved to Georgetown SC and married his one true love, Katie Horan.
Bryan is survived by his wife of 39 years, Katie Maleckar of Georgetown, SC; their daughter Aimee Salmon (Tony) Landolfi of Surfside, SC; brothers Jay (Suzanne) Maleckar, Bob (Linda) Maleckar, & Bill Maleckar, & sister Susan (Jim) Dean, of Florence, SC; brother Chris (MacKel) Maleckar of Ridgeville, SC; and brother Tom Maleckar of Vancouver, WA. He also leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces, friends, friends who love him like family, and his cats.
Bryan enjoyed all things intellectual as well as all things artistic. He was an avid reader, a history buff, a self-taught guitar player, a singer, a self-taught painter, and a self-taught photographer. Bryan loved to learn and he loved to share the results of his learning. Of all of the hobbies Bryan loved, the one he loved most was sitting on the front porch visiting with anyone walking past. He loved Georgetown and all of the people that call Georgetown home. He was a beautiful spirit who touched the lives of so many people all over the world. His legacy is forever with us through the wonder of the internet where you can find samples of his music (youtube.com – BMaleckar – uploads), samples of his photography (Facebook - South Carolina Picture Project page – Bryan Maleckar), and samples of his paintings on the Facebook pages of his loved ones.
