One Condolence for Francis A. Malloy, Jr.

  • My family lived on Vandever Ave two doors down from the Malloys. My sisters and I grew up with Frank and Vincent and remember their Mom and Dad as well. I remember Frank as a very polite young man in his teens. Frank was 5 years older than me but was closer in the age to my sister, Janet. I fondly remember that growing up he had a red, Ducati, motorcycle that I thought was just awesome. In the early 60’s we all went our different ways and, sadly, we lost touch with Frank.

    I am sure that the Malloy family will miss him and his family has my and my sister’s sincerest condolences on his loss.
