John B “Jack” Maloney, 83, passed away peacefully on April 20, 2013 after a short illness. Born into a military family at Raritan Arsenal, NJ, Jack grew up on various Army bases and graduated high school in Berlin, Germany, during the 1948-49 Berlin Blockade.
Upon returning to the U.S., he joined the Navy where he became a ground air controller, serving at Pearl Harbor and Key West. He attended Technical college in Long Island, NY, and then joined RCA Service Co., first downrange then at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station where he worked as a Chief Radar Tech for 35 years, later working for GE then CSR.
He married Burleen Griffin in 1961. Jack loved travelling and camped regularly with his family – he was even an “unofficial” Assistant Leader for his daughters’ Girl Scout Troop. Jack volunteered extensively with daughter Wendy’s Special Olympics teams and helped out as a Band Parent at Merritt Island High School for daughter Stacey. Upon retiring in 1993, he and Burleen travelled extensively in their RV; visiting 49 states and all Canadian provinces. Among their favorite travel memories is an Alaskan RV Caravan in 1998. They then decided to park the RV and go to Hawaii (#50!) with some of the friends they made on that adventure
Jack loved life, his family and puttering in his yard. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Burleen; Daughter Wendy Maloney; Daughter Stacey Maloney Walton and her husband Scott; his grandsons, Zachary, Ryan and Jacob Walton; Sister Elizabeth Stearns; Brother-in-Law Dale Griffin; Sister-in-Law Vicki Edmonds; and many nieces and nephews.
A memorial service to celebrate Jack’s life will be held at Beckman-Williamson Funeral home in Cocoa Beach on Friday, April 26 at 4:00pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations in his memory to The Special Gathering or Special Olympics of Florida. The family also wishes to thank the medical staff at Wuesthoff Hospital and Wuesthoff Home Hospice for their kindness and support in Jack’s last days.
