HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. -- Edward Joseph O’Malley, 71, of Ball Street, died on Jan. 9, 2004 at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington, Vt. He was born in Hoosick Falls on Nov. 15, 1932, the son of the late Thomas and Mary Mulvihill O’Malley, and grew up with his parents and five siblings on the family farm in East Hoosick.

He graduated from Saint Mary’s Academy in 1951 and went on to serve in the U.S. Army. Soon after, he married his high school sweetheart, Margaret Hughes O’Malley, on July 21, 1956. He was a devoted husband to his wife Margaret, and a beloved father to their six children and six grandchildren. His family was the center of his life and his greatest achievement.

Throughout his working life, Ed was employed at several area businesses, including the Wood Flong Corp., Eveready Battery and Oak Industries. A consummate hometown boy, Ed was a tireless supporter of community, church and school in Hoosick Falls. He was a lifetime communicant of Immaculate Conception parish, a member of the Knights of Columbus, a longtime member of the Town of Hoosick Rescue Squad and a volunteer with the Hoosick Area Food Closet and Saint Mary’s Academy. A gifted gardener and skilled craftsman, Ed could often be found tending his bountiful garden or restoring antique furniture at his home on Ball Street.

Edward leaves behind his devoted wife Margaret, his six children: Marie Hemeon, Kevin O’Malley, Paul O’Malley of Hoosick falls, Eileen Holloman of West Dennis, Mass, Margaret Ann O’Malley of New York City and Michelle Eastman of Cambridge; his six cherished grandchildren Nicole Schultz, Jenna O’Malley, Connor Hemeon, Dana O’Malley, Alanna O’Malley and Jack Eastman; his two beloved brothers, Bernard and Jack O’Malley. Ed also leaves behind and is mourned by his faithful, four-legged friend, Murphy. He will be joined in heaven with his dear parents and departed siblings, the late Thomas O’Malley and Mary O’Malley Reinfurt.

A wake will be held on Monday at the Robson-Reinfurt Funeral Home on Main Street in Hoosick Falls. The calling hours are from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. A mass of Christian burial will be held at the Immaculate Conception Church on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Memorial contributions may be made to either Saint Mary’s Academy or Town of Hoosick Rescue Squad through the funeral home.
