VIRGINA BEACH – Malcolm (“Mal”) Bruce Gutterman, 84, passed away peacefully on January 21, surrounded by his loving family.

Mal was born to Norman and Rose Silver Gutterman in Norfolk, Virginia.

Mal attended Norfolk public schools and graduated from Maury High School. Mal successfully ran Gutterman Iron and Metal throughout his adulthood and then retired in his home in Virginia Beach.

Nothing was more important to Mal than family. He was married to the love of his life for 55 years, Maida Meschel Gutterman, and they raised two beloved children, Sean Michael (of blessed memory) and Stacey Dawn. Mal was a devoted husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle, and cousin. His kindness, warmth, humor, and genuineness were felt by everyone he met.

In addition to his dedication to family, Mal loved golf and watching football, and he was an avid coin collector.

Survivors, besides Maida and Stacey (Brad Lerner), include his grandchildren, Silver and Locke, and Mal’s siblings, Robert Gutterman (Audrey), Elayne Litman (Jeff) and Herbert Gutterman (Carol).

A graveside service took place at Forest Lawn Cemetery on January 24.
