I met Malloy when I became a Hearing Rep in 1991. Malloy sat in the back with the guys; Bunmi, Richie T, & Hanrahan. They were a 'cast of characters'. The calendars back then were 100 case calendars. We made the most of having to prep these heavy calendars by joking and telling stories.

Hard to believe, but we still found time to have fun. Puffy's was the hangout spot.

I remember Malloy talking about the children and his experiences as a coach.

When we were studying for the Level 2 Senior Hearing Rep position, Malloy studied so hard, he even knew the mascot for SIF. Malloy was told by another Rep Luther Williams, to focus on case law because it was doubtful a mascot question would be on the exam. (lol). Suffice to say there was no mascot question on the exam. Malloy did pass the Senior Rep exam and became a Senior Rep. He was a good and fair Rep. Subsequently he went to law school and left SIF.

I still saw Malloy @ WCB and we would talk about his children. I was always happy to hear they were doing well. Malloy was very proud of his children.

So sad to see he is gone so young. RIP Malloy.

Pete and I started our Hearing Rep. careers at SIF about the same time. His quick wit veiled a very determined character. It was no surprise to me when I heard later that he became an attorney. We shared a love for soccer; we watched and talked the game frequently, especially during the World Cup. He once jokingly chided me for calling soccer cleats wrongly (I leave it to your imagination)😁. Pete was a lively, lovely gentleman with whom I discussed my family and his when we sat in close proximity in the NYC office. May God comfort his family and grant him peaceful rest.

It was an honor to know and work with Peter at the law office. He was a kind, respectable and humble person. May he Rest In Peace. My deepest condolences to his family.

Peter was so young when he began as a hearing rep at State Insurance Fund. Someone aptly called the reps "gladiators." I was so impressed that he was able to go to law school, make Law Review and have time for young children and his working wife. There were only one or two other reps who took (and then, only a portion of) that rough road.

Pete was always so cheerful and playful, ever smiling and full of energy. A friend continually there, a team player, one who shared and understood our life and reliably available, no matter which side of the table he was on. The photo (thanks to Debbie Robinson) really captures the essence of that special camaraderie.

I remember learning about roses and gardens and talking about kids with him. I remember sitting one day in the SIF room at the Board waiting for the calendar to begin. Peter was earnestly discussing with someone who said they would be satisfied with just a little bit more. Although young, he was wise enough to be at peace and content with what he had, where he was at the moment. He pointed out that for many, when you got that little bit more, then you would not be happy, but would just want to move on to the next step and just get a little bit more. His point was that for them, there would never be enough, they would always want a little bit more. I admired him and respected him even more after that.

Everything I've read here confirms what I've said. The details of each particular situation have added clarity and rounded out yet added to the focus of the picture of this gentle man. I am sure these are the traits he has shared with his children. Although we loved Pete, we can only share a small portion of your sorrow. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

I knew Peter for nearly 30 years. I worked with him at the State Fund and later I worked for him. There was no better gentleman in his profession. I am glad that I knew him. I still remember groups of us going World Cup games at lunch time in 1990s.

I had the pleasure of working with Peter when he was a hearing representative and later when he became an attorney. He was witty, kind and respectful. My deepest condolences to his family.

We go back to the early 70's. Pete was one of my best friends in grade school, we were blessed to have many close friends growing up. Pete was always well spoken and by far the most knowledgeable of the bunch. He had an awesome personality.
We lost touch many years ago and this news is heart wrenching. My prayers go out to his family.
Until we meet again my friend.

I trained Peter as a Hearing Rep for NYState Fund. I was always impressed by his interest in learning more .

Sorry that he has passed.

I remember when Pete shared the news about his Law School Admissions test score. With the result he knew that his career would take a different turn. He scored so phenomenally well that he won a scholarship to New York Law School. He was also kind enough to regularly accept the Entertainment Section of the New York Times. It was a privilege to work with so fine a human being as Pete Malloy.
