    Mallot was truly “one-of-a-kind.” His wit and humor will truly be missed. He was a fixture in Unit 5 at FSP for many years, working side by side with his steady partners. His entire CDCR family was fortunate to have the pleasure of working with a solid officer. He spoke very highly of his family and was very proud of his children. I will miss our chats and sharing our ‘lil Ginger’ stories. I’m grateful to have had him as a co-worker and a friend. He always had way of making an 8-hour shift much more comical and brightened the day. Rest in peace, Willy.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Mallot at the Academy and starting at SVSP with him. We worked together on Delta Yard 3/W and was present for his mishap that dubbed him “One Shot Mallot.” His sense of humor and personality were far bigger than his stature. The two funniest things I remember about Mallot was the shooting incident and whenever the Hiring Lt. would call the D Yard Sgt. for OT, Mallot would gladly accept it for him without his permission. This would always send the Sgt. in a tailspin.
    RIP my brother, as you are in a better place. Thank you for the great memories! My family and I send our deepest condolences to the Mallot Family.

    C/O W. Mallot was a good officer and friend. I first met him when we worked together at Salinas Valley State Prison on Echo Yard. He was a pretty funny “Lil” guy. He earned a a nickname of “One-shot” Mallot for a mishap as a Gunner on the Ad Seg yard.

    You’re going to be truly missed.

    RIP my friend.
