Greg was born December 12, 1947 in Burlington VT to Barbara Killary Malloy and the late Donald Malloy, the family moved to New Providence NJ in 1949.
He graduated New Providence High School in 1965. He met Barbara Baker at NPHS in 1962; they married in 1968 and would enjoy a 53 year love story. Always by each other’s side and always up for an adventure. Their journey took them to VT, NJ, OH, MA, NH & FL and touching many lives along the way.
In 1969, Greg accepted a position at Crum & Forster Ins. Co as a file clerk in NYC, a 27 year career with C&F ending as EVP Field Operations & Marketing. Taking risk and not wanting to work for someone else he left, in 1997, he moved to Boston, MA and started PMC Insurance Group. During his time, he had a great ability to read the character of those around him, had an open door policy, approachable by all, always flashed a smile, had rock solid integrity, and was trusted by all. He grew PMC to be one of the largest Workers Comp specialty insurance brokers in the country.
Greg had an amazing career that at its core was built on the love and belief in people, and always around a good meal. Relationships of a lifetime that made work pleasure and pleasure work.
In 2006, he become a snowbird, splitting time between Andover, MA, Naples FL and Wolfeboro NH. Greg loved the FL lifestyle, enjoying golf in the day, cocktails in the hot tub and frequent dinners with friends. Come May, lake life called, where he loved the crystal clear water of Lake Winnipesaukee and many hours on the boat. Most Importantly, FL and NH were hosting grounds for his kids, grandkids, family and friends. He loved nothing more than a table full of people, a long meal, great wine and great laughs. People were Greg’s fuel, he had a genuine interest in everyone he came in contact, found commonality with all, and often your brief time meeting him would end in a warm hug. He will be remembered as a larger than life character, mentor and teacher to his children, grandkids, family, friends and business associated alike.
His light will live and shine through all those he touched!
He is survived by his wife, Barbara Malloy; his mother, Barbara K. Malloy; sister, Marjory M. Berry; brother, William Malloy; his sons, David and Jeff; Daughters in law, Melissa and Dana; and grandchildren, Olivia, Isabella, Grace, Leah and Ryan.
