James F Maloney

AGE: 82 • Pine Beach

James F. Maloney, 82, of Pine Beach passed away suddenly on Sunday, November 19, 2017, at his home. A lifelong learner and devoted husband and father, he passed while doing two things he loved — reading the latest news while chatting with one of his five children. Born in Elizabeth, NJ, he resided in Elizabeth and Avenel before migrating south to Pine Beach with his beautiful wife and three eldest children in 1969. He worked his way up through the ranks of the US Postal Service over his 30-year tenure, beginning as a clerk before ultimately retiring as Postmaster of the Elizabeth Post Office where he led a team of over 500 employees across several branches.

His growing family's move to the Ocean County area was precipitated by his hope for a better life for his children. He worked closely with his brother, building not only houses in Bayville and Ocean Gate, but also their own family residences, and the home of one of James' daughters in Pine Beach. James was a Christian studying a variety of world religions, practicing meditation much of his adult life. His passion for American history was well-known, as he'd often share interesting facts from his studies at family dinners. His family meant the world to him and he lovingly supported his children's and grandchildren's sporting events (yes, even soccer), concerts, plays and parades.

He was the beloved husband of Joyce (Alessi), and loving father of Michael & his wife Traci of Toms River, Maureen & her husband Robert of Kamloops BC, Christine & her husband Jon of Pine Beach, Kate of Jersey City, and Molly & her husband Andrew of Beachwood. Cherished grandfather to Diane, Ethan, Sullivan, David, Olivia, Aidan, and Emma.
