I worked for Wien in 1981 and 82 and had a lot of dealings with Dennis. He was always helpful, and one evening at Brooks Lodge in Katmai National Park, Dennis told me the story as a young man he was walking through the streets of Georgetown wondering what he should do with his life. He said he asked God if he could meet his hero Ralph Nader so he could ask Nader for advice. At that moment, late at night, Ralph Nader came to a stop at the corner where Dennis was walking. Dennis told me that he took it as a sign from God. I've never forgotten that story, even though I'd long lost touch with Dennis. Googled his name today and came across his obituary. Condolences to the family.

I am sorry to just learn about Dennis. I was reminiscing the other day about my time at Boeing and with the folks at Wien Air Alaska - Dennis included. My best recollection was the fishing trip at one of the "camps" near the American River. We even went water skiing behind the Jet boat and were sworn to secrecy. No one could tell Vick Fondey. What a great man!

A number of years ago I got a phone call from Dennis out of the blue and we had a several hour long talk about everything after not having talked for a decade. He was particularly interested in something that was happening in Washington at the time and afterward we talked about our lives and families. He told me about his activities, particularly about his anti-bullying campaign. One thing we didn't discuss was the fact that he must have already been ill. Not long after I tried to get in touch with his office via email but never got a reply.

We met when he was working in Washington for Ernest Greuning and I was working for Proxmire of Wisconsin and we ended up living in the same neighborhood while we were going to law school. I met a parade of his Anchorage friends over the years. After we were both out of law school, I headed up to Anchorage and, through Dennis, got involved in the most interesting campaign I ever worked on, to unify the city and borough and elect George Sullivan Mayor of same. I met many fascinating people during the three years I was in Alaska and stayed in touch with Dennis intermittently after moving back to DC. Recently, I have been reading about the Alaska Senate campaign and wondered whether the Dan Sullivan was George's son. A quick internet search revealed that no, not the Senate but he is apparently Mayor of Anchorage. I thought I'd see what Dennis was doing and stumbled across this page.

I am very sad to hear of his passing. I think subconsciously I thought Dennis was nearly immortal because of his unbelievable energy. His body language just radiated enthusiasm and when we were in DC it was not unusual for myself and mutual friends to be urging him to slow down. It is marvelous to hear from the many messages in this book that he didn't listen to us and used his personal and professional life to make such a positive impact on so many people. I would like to offer my very belated condolences to his family and friends.

I still miss you dad. You are still the best dad I've had! I still remember the times you take me places, your office & to the courthouse to meet the judge about one of your case! I love you so much.

Was thinking about you today. Thinking about my horrible case and how you did such a wonderful job of winning it on my behalf. You were the best attorney that anyone could ask for, rough at times, yes; but great. This is my way of telling you THANK YOU!!!! for all that you did for me. I shed my tears for you when my mom told me the news of your passing. I'm sure you've argued your way right into Heaven! Rest peacefully Dennis, With love. <3

Having moved from Alaska, I have just learned of Dennis' passing. I have fond memories of Dennis. I knew him via the medical field and had many enjoyable conversations with him. He did indeed have wonderful and fun stories. He often brought videos of Patricks plays and his singing. He was so proud of all that Patrick was accomplishing. There was one treatment that needed to be done on a Sunday and I was more than glad to come when the MD called. Dennis, true to his generous self, brought me a wonderful bottle of "fine olive oil" from Italy. After moving out of state I would get a phone call out of the blue "just to encourage you on" he would say. I enjoyed a great visit with hime while in Alaska last summer. I will be grateful for the memories and the friendship. You will be missed Dennis.

Dennis and met in AP English at West High in 1963-4. It is hard to say goodbye to him. We kept in contact through the years. I visited him in Georgetown and he held a party at his home for me and invited some old H.S. chums to have a wonderful night of food and conversation. Dennis was always the life of the party...and we did party. We both appreciated cars and I sold him that 1938 Buick and the corvette too. We had a lot of fun driving around Anchorage sometimes taking friends for a ride on the running boards.

As we had our children, we talked on the phone about fatherhood and the tribulations of being a parent. When my divorce hit me, Dennis was on the phone with me to help me decide what to do. One thing he offered was golf. I was 50 and he offered his Utah place for a week and the services of his golf pro to teach me. I later found work in Vermont as a golf pro.

In recent years as Dennis found he was ill, we corresponded by e-mail and exchanged humor and stories and pictures of the kids. Even though I moved to China in 2006, to teach English, we kept in touch.

I am moved to tears as I read the messages that others have left about their contact with Dennis Maloney. I will miss his laughter and great open approach to life. Rest in peace my friend, but keep on dancin' !
