It is with great sadness that the family of Joshua David Maloney of Wolcott, CT announces his sudden passing, on Sunday, October 28, 2018 in Dallas, TX, at the age of 44. Joshua passed peacefully with his wife, children, family and friends at his side.
Joshua will be deeply missed by his wife and best friend, Renée, and his two loving children, Brady and Madison. Joshua will also be fondly remembered by his brother, David J. Maloney, and sister-in-law, Joella B. Maloney of Woodbridge, VA. Joshua was predeceased by his parents, Sandra T. Maloney and David R. Maloney. Joshua leaves behind numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, extended family, and countless friends that will all miss him dearly.
Joshua will be best remembered as a devoted father and husband, who took great pride in his family. Everything that made Joshua happy in life started with his wife and two children. Renée, who was by his side for 27 years, was his heart and soul. From high school sweethearts until his passing, they built a life and a bond that couldn’t be broken. Joshua was extremely proud of Brady and Madison, both 13, and loved to share funny stories of them, and to share videos of Brady playing baseball and guitar, and Madison singing or playing basketball, with everyone he came in contact with.
The Maloney family trips to Disney World, which were legendary for their level of detailed planning, and frequency, were one of Joshua’s proudest achievements, and kept him close to happier childhood memories of trips he took with his parents and brother. Those were a representation of how hard Joshua worked, and how much he wanted his children to experience the best things that life had to offer.
Joshua was also an active member of his community, dedicating his time and energy to the Baseball Association of Wolcott, where he served as a coach for 7 years. Joshua loved coaching and working with the kids, from D-league all the way up through A-league, with his teams winning three championships in 2016 and 2017.
Joshua was a huge sports fan, and loved to watch his Red Sox, Celtics, and Patriots. He was also an avid music lover, collecting music memorabilia and attending many concerts and music festivals with family and friends.
Calling hours will be held on Saturday, November 10 from 12 to 2 p.m. at Woodtick Memorial, 420 Woodtick Road, Wolcott. A funeral home service will be held at 2 p.m. Burial will be held at a later date.
