Timothy Maloney, 84, of Little Compton passed away peacefully at home on Sunday March 20, 2022. He was the husband of the late Patricia (Bolster) Maloney and father of Courtney Maloney.
Tim was born and raised in North Attleboro, Massachusetts. His parents were the late Roland V. Maloney and Gertrude (Cullen) Maloney. He played high school football for the North Attleboro Red Rocketeers, and years later installed a radio antenna so he could listen to their Thanksgiving games against rival Attleboro from his home in Little Compton. After graduating from Stonehill College, he served in the United States Navy, returning to active duty in the following years and eventually retiring with the rank of major. Tim met his wife Patricia in Livorno, Italy, and they were married for 52 years.
After settling in Little Compton in 1968, Tim and his brother Terry ran a fish market in Middletown, RI called Newport Lobster Pound. After closing the market in the late 70s, Tim worked as a cook on a Raytheon research vessel and as a quahogger. His dearest occupation came later in life, when he taught refrigeration and air conditioning at MCI Bridgewater. Tim was a spiritual person who believed in the fundamental benevolence of the universe. He was also an accomplished organic gardener, best known for his garlic. He will be remembered for his sense of humor, his good humor and his kindness towards all.
Survivors include his daughter Courtney and son-in-law Martin Allen; his brother Terrence Maloney and Terry’s wife, Kathy, his brother-in-law Vincent Hoye of North Attleboro, and his beloved nieces and nephews, including Ann (Leary) Stock and Margaret (Leary) Dooley, formerly of Little Compton; and many dear friends.
