Malos, William J. - Dunmore  
William J. Malos of Dunmore, passed away unexpectedly in his sleep Sunday at home. He was a beloved son, brother, uncle and friend to many, and will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him. Born on Nov. 24, 1961, Billy, as he was called by everyone, attended Dunmore schools and graduated from Dunmore High School in 1979. He ran track for Dunmore, specializing in long distance running. He earned a degree in engineering from Penn State University in 1983. He was a registered professional engineer at the Pennsylvania American Water Co. for over 30 years, where he oversaw the design and construction of water resource facilities. Billy loved life and participated in many activities. He ran over 100 marathons, including the Boston Marathon and the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. He was the family historian and traveled to the Malos family ancestral home in Ukraine annually for the past 20 years with his good friend, Father Gabe Tetorak. He was very involved as a member of St. Michael's Byzantine Catholic Church in Dunmore, which he belonged to his whole life. Billy was an especially devoted son and cared many years for his father, William, who passed away in 2009. He lived with and cared for his mother, Dorothy, and helped her to maintain the family home.

He was an unbelievable uncle to his nieces and nephews, Sara Ruane and William Blattberg, Kate and Nicholas Malos, Julia, Rebecca and Anna Malos and Daniel, Christopher, Maryann, Timothy and Catherine Malos. He never missed a birthday party, christenings, dance recitals, sporting events or graduations, and was always up for playing wiffle ball and board games with them. He loved animals, especially his dog, Monty, and his cats, Ollie, Blackie and Twoface. He loved to feed the birds and squirrels in his yard. He was extremely generous to all, and took care of those around him and would help anyone who needed it. Billy had many and varied hobbies.
