May they forever Rest In Peace


Malcolm is described as:

a “no nonsense Police Officer” who

“Didn’t mind a bit of overtime”,

“was a bloody good bloke”,

“an inspiration and great role model”,

loved finding and investigating car re-birthing offenders,

“had the smallest hand writing in the cops”,

“could smell a stolen car a mile away”.


I didn’t know this man but I know, had we worked together, we would have been great together in relation to stolen vehicle theft arrests.





On behalf of the team at Shaw’s Darwin Transport, We unfortunately inform you that Malcolm Pascoe has passed away early this morning.

Those who know/knew him would know what a hard working and dedicated man he was to the company.

Mal will be greatly missed by all and the company will not be the same without him.

We send all our love to his wife Marian and family at such a difficult time.

For those of you who know the family, we ask that you please give them space and allow them time to grieve in their own way.
