Malcolm Ware, a resident at Belle Meade in Southern Pines, celebrated his 100th birthday at a luncheon with family and friends on Jan. 19, in the Fordham Room at Belle Meade.

Ware, who was born Jan. 18, 1918, moved to Pinehurst in 1981 after retiring as director of purchasing for NL Industries in Oceanport, N.J. He graduated from Lehigh University with an engineering degree in 1940 and served in the U.S. Navy during World War II.

After moving to Pinehurst, Ware joined The Village Chapel, where he served as an usher for more than 30 years, and Pinehurst Country Club, where he ran the duplicate bridge program for seven years and was heavily involved in the Hackers and the Scrambles.

Ware is a former chairman of the Pinehurst Planning and Zoning Board, as well as a former board member of the Tin Whistles. He still drives, and attributes his longevity to “moderate living and staying active.”

“God wants me to hang out here for a little while longer,” he noted with a smile.
