Ronald Rudolph Maloney transitioned suddenly on Sunday, August 7, 2022 at Paoli Hospital in Paoli, Pennsylvania. He was predeceased by his wife, Carolyn, on October 1, 2021.
Ronald was born on June 17, 1943 to the late Rudolph and Nellie Maloney in New York City, New York. He grew up in Brooklyn, NY and attended Franklin K. Lane High School. In 1966 he was drafted to the United States Army and received honorable discharge after two years of service. He later graduated from the City College of New York. After graduating, he accepted a position at AT&T in Manhattan. He was promoted to a sales management position just after New Year’s 1976. He recalled walking into his new supervisor’s office and seeing Carolyn for the first time. They were both beginning their first day in management positions and it was not long before they were dating. They were wed by the mayor of Saratoga Springs, NY on June 4, 1977.
When Carolyn became pregnant with their first daughter, she and Ronald decided to move out of New York City to Hillsborough, New Jersey, where they bought their first home together. Their oldest daughter, Tanya Theresa was born on July 25, 1979 and Christine Carol came 11 years later on July 22, 1990. When Ronald retired from AT&T, he and Carolyn moved to Downingtown, Pennsylvania. Ronald was a devoted husband of 44 years.
Ronald traveled the world as a young man and later with his wife and daughters. He was a jazz enthusiast and highly skillful audiophile. He loved animals. He also enjoyed photography and talking to people across the world as a licensed ham radio operator since 1968. Ronald was happiest when dining out or going to the movie theater with his family.
Ronald will be remembered by his two daughters, Tanya and Christine; cousins Ruth Brooks-Walker, Drucilla Brooks-Mosby, James Thomas Brooks, Michael Brooks, Alice Chapman-Minutello, Bettye Chapman-Buchanen, and Mary Chapman-Deas; and a host of relatives, neighbors, former co-workers and friends.
