John Malloy Obituary
John Malloy (72) lived a life for others. The lifelong Angelino died at home surrounded by his kids, grandkids and close friends after a 7 year battle with cancer. "Every community should have at least ONE man like John Malloy" said an article about the father of five. He was known through out Los Angeles for being a man whose actions spoke louder than his words. A long time family friend noted, "John drove a pick up truck, not to haul dirt for his John T. Malloy Construction Company but to transport kids, sporting equipment, and gear for community events and organizations. John was born in 1943 to Emmett and Louise Malloy of Inglewood. He was the 5th of 9 children. John was married to Betsy Malloy and they raised their 5 kids Justin, Hilary, Emmett, Brendan and Coley in Hancock Park. The 3 boys attended John's Alma Mater Loyola High School while his daughter Hilary graduated from Marlborough and Coley attended Marymount. His oldest son Justin worked along side John for over 20 years running their pipeline construction business. John was a true small business owner who employed hundreds of people in the community. Many were family members and friends who would wear his orange construction shirts with the motto "Work Safely" written boldly on the back. John was the recipient of the 2014 Engineering Contractors Association "Contractor of the Year." John was very involved in the Loyola Community and served as the PA announcer for sporting events for over 30 years. He was known as "The Voice of the Cubs." He spent the summer in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy but was determined to announce the 2015 season. He was able to call the first game before having to go back to the USC Norris Center for more treatment. The last touchdown he announced on his final game was "Jake Malloy in for a touchdown!" as his grandson ran for 12 yards to score for the Cubs. In 2012 John received the "Cahalan Award" for distinguished Alumni who were devoted to serving Loyola and the community. John loved his 8 grandsons and 1 granddaughter and was known to them as "Pa John." He would pile them into his pick up truck and take them countless sporting events and family functions. John would find love in his partner Rosemary Mitchell. They were devoted Catholics and loved each others families. Rosemary would be at his side in his final years to always make him smile and was at his courageously with him in his final moments. The family would like to thank the Doctors at USC Norris Center, UCLA and the Angeles Clinic for their remarkable work. John was diagnosed with metastasized melanoma nearly 7 years ago but was able to live for many years because of the remarkable efforts of his entire medical team. The Funeral Mass will be Saturday, November 21, 2015 at 10:00 am at St. Brendan's Catholic Church in Hancock Park.
