Mallory was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and teacher. He was a lover of all music from Metallica to Dave Matthews to Garth Brooks. He instilled this love of music with his daughters from an early age; going to the library and checking out different CDs to enjoy on long drives to soccer practices and games. He was an involved father and spent many years coaching his girls' soccer teams at St. Dominic School. When they reached high school, he transitioned from coach to team photographer and captured countless sporting events for McGill Toolen. Over the years, he never missed a game. More than anything he loved being a Pop Pop to Tripp and spoiling him any chance he got. As an undergraduate at the University of South Alabama where he met his wife of 28 years, he was a member of the Gamma Phi Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. He is a proud graduate of Auburn University and was a devoted Auburn football fan. He later went on to pursue his Master's degree from USA fulfilling his dream of being a teacher and happily teaching at Council Traditional School for many years.
