William Malachi, known to family and friends as "Cool One", was born the son of the late Theola Malachi and Handy Malachi, Sr. He was also preceded in death by his sister, Edgnora Washington and his brother, Handy Malachi, Jr. He was born in Bennettsville, South Carolina located in Marlboro County on November 20, 1952. He was converted at an early age in life and joined Smyrna United Methodist Church in Bennettsville. There he was baptized as a youth and he was later honored with his name on the cornerstone of the church. William really loved his family. He wasn't perfect, but he was perfect for his children, remaining family and friends. He had a comedic personality along with a welcoming spirit that made him the person others grew to admire. He was educated in the public school system of Marlboro County. After graduating he went to work for local plants in the area. He ended up working construction and this kept him traveling something that he really enjoyed doing. Later he moved to High Point, North Carolina and started working for Greensboro Transit Agency (GTA). He remained there until his retirement. On September 15, 2023 while at his home in High Point, William Malachi responded to the voice of God calling him from labor to reward. He leaves to cherish his fond memories, but not limited to: his wife of fourteen years, Faye Boulware Malachi of the home; four children, Latoya Malachi and Parrish Hammond both of New York, NY; Sameka Bright, Bennettsville, SC; Dallas Bright, Kernersville, NC; seventeen grandchildren; two great grandchildren; six sisters, Ruth Barretine (James), McCormick, SC; Odessa Malachi and Theola Rose both of Brooklyn, NY; Pastor Jeannette "Lee" Malachi, Greensboro, NC, Joyce Malachi, Bennettsville, SC and Gwendolyn Malachi, High Point, NC; two brothers, Wilson Malachi (Elsie), High Point, NC and Roderick Malachi, Greensboro, NC; special friend, Mike McRae; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends who will miss him.
