Francis "Frank" M. Maley

Retired lawyer and former Deputy Attorney General, Frank M. Maley, 85, died October 8, 2013, in hospice care at Carmel Health & Living Community. He was born March 25, 1928, in Indianapolis, to James and Margaret (Reidy) Maley. After graduating from Cathedral High School, where he was a standout baseball player, he entered the University of Notre Dame at age 17, and graduated with honors in 1950. While working full time as the general foreman for the RCA Records Division, he studied at Indiana University School of Law in Indianapolis, earning his degree in 1957.

From 1965 to 1969, he was a Deputy Attorney General with the state Alcoholic Beverage Commission and Bureau of Motor Vehicles. In that role, he was instrumental in the preparation of the Indiana Driver's Manual. In private practice, he focused on civil law and environmental illness. He was a lector at St. Matthew Catholic Church in Indianapolis and St. Louis de Montfort Catholic Church in Fishers for many years.

In retirement, he created and taught an after-school debate class aimed at teaching 5th and 6th graders at St. Louis de Montfort Catholic School how to research topics and think quickly in public settings.

Also surviving are two brothers, James Maley of Illinois and David (Nancy) Maley of California; and many nieces and nephews.
