He was one of a kind!! Always made me laugh.
First time I met Billy was when he and Mary Ann were having a picnic down at the creek.
My favorite times were at the ski house with him and his crew.
He has a great legacy in Clair, Katie and Billy.
Big hugs....

To Bill's wife and family, I am very sad to hear of Bill's passing. I have know Bill for better than 75 years having attending Holyname with him and having spent all of our early years as playful friends. Bill was always a pleasant guy and was well respected by his peers. I fondly remember a time when he and I plus others were groomsmen at another friends wedding, whose wife lived a few houses from the Maloney's home on 17 th Street. We played an awful trick on them by short sheeting their bed st the Waldorf Astoria in NYC. Well, Bill may God cherish you in His Kingdom for all eternity. Rest in peace my friend.
