Obituary For Jack Lewis Malloy

It is with great sadness that the family of Jack Malloy announces his peaceful passing, surrounded by family, on January 23, 2021 in the Palliative Care Unit of the Victoria General Hospital, Halifax.

Born in 1931, Jack was the youngest of the eight children of the late Earl and Mabel Malloy. He retired as an electrician from the Imperial Oil Refinery and in retirement spent many hours playing golf at Oakfield, serving as a member of the RCAFA (111 Mic Mac Wing) and enjoying his grandchildren.

He will be remembered for his love of family and friends, his handyman skills which he shared generously and his enthusiasm for the use and repair of computers.

He is survived and will be dearly missed by his wife of 63 years, Marie (Davidson); his son Kim (Linda); daughters Janet (Robert) Englehutt and Judee (Keith) Wellband; special son Ron (Diana) McGraw; sister Eleanor Buttrey; brother Murray; seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren.

Cremation has taken place. Interment will be at a later date in the Bayview Cemetery Goldboro, Nova Scotia.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the Palliative Care Team for their care and compassion during Jack’s illness. Donations may be made to the QEII Foundation in support of Palliative Care.

    I sent this picture to Uncle Jack (cutting the bones out of a fish). I had not kept in touch with him as much as I should have. Some great times hunting for gold in Goldboro and having great food. Miss the whole family. Especially grandpa and grandma Malloy.

    Sad to hear of Jack's passing. A lot of wonderful memories growing up and visiting in the summers. An amazing gentleman, funny, smart, witty, and all around great person. Did not know he had passed, just discovered by accident today. We lost Aunt Shirley this morning, so Jack and my parents ( Bill and Muriel Davidson ), can help show her about. Love and hugs to my half sister Marie, and condolences to all.

    Jack was a wonderful man. Just meeting him right he one time he drove all the way to visit my brother Harold Sanford while Harold was recovering from knee surgery. His stories were intriguing. How could a man leave such a lasting impression in such a short time. A wonderful day. Condolences to his family.

    I was so sorry to read of Jack's passing. I have such fond memories of the times that I was down visiting during my running years, the Malloy home was always a very welcoming place where you were made to feel a part of the family. The memories of Jack's practical advice, the laughter, the support and of course the meals will remain with me forever. While he is gone from you his family, he will be with you always in your shared memories, God rest his soul.

    The Sacre's want to take the opportunity to send our heartfelt condolences to the entire family. Speaking with our father ( Bob) the other day he was reminiscing and sharing all the great memories he had of Jack. We want to let you know how appreciative we were of Jack's kind hearted friendship. He was always there (for Bob) with a helping hand with computer tech issues, invites for dinner ( pre COVID days) , calls on a daily basis and best of all, just being a great friend! Thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very sad time.
