In memory of
Harold Roy Malsbury MALABAR, FL Harold, better known to friends as "Dusty," was born in Imlaystown, NJ, on March 3, 1931. He was the youngest of three children born to the late Roy and Lillian (Kimble) Malsbury. He was a longtime resident of Hightstown, NJ. A resourceful and determined man with many strengths and talents, he overcame obstacles and challenges that would have stopped others in their tracks. He and his late wife, Frances, were proprietors of Malsbury Door Sales, his proudest and most successful business venture. After retirement, he moved to the Florida Keys and later enjoyed RV traveling with his wife, Joyce. They eventually settled in Malabar, FL. Harold was an avid sportsman who enjoyed hunting, boating, and deep-sea fishing. His lifelong passion for "anything with an engine" led him to racing stock cars on tracks in central Jersey and Pennsylvania. He was especially fond of East Windsor Speedway, where he won over 50 percent of the Sportsman Features that he entered, carrying the checkered flag in his signature maroon and cream-colored "777." He was honored for his role as a legend driver, for helping start the New Egypt Speedway. He took his last lap in life on April 9, 2017. He was predeceased by his first wife of 30 years, Frances. He is survived by his wife, Joyce Farrands; an older brother, Leroy Malsbury of Red Oak, VA; his children, Nancy Forer of North Carolina; Linda Malsbury of Princeton, NJ, and Douglas Malsbury of Ewing, NJ. Harold is also survived by his stepchildren, Lori Kocher of Hightstown, and DeAnna Hollis of Toms River, NJ; grandchildren, Leif Forer of Durham, NC; Taj Forer of Saratoga Springs, NY; Kayla Cifelli of Hamilton, NJ; and 2nd Lt. (USAF) Tyler Malsbury of Fort Walton Beach, FL. He is also survived by step-grandchildren, Hallie Kocher, Michael Eoff, Jennifer Beeh and Julie Beeh; great-grandchildren, Soren and Rowan Forer; and many nieces and nephews and his beloved three little Yorkie companions.
