Obituary

Mike was born to Burt and Betty Maloney in 1964. He was a graduate of Chelmsford High School and worked for many years as a pharmacy technician. He lived in Chelmsford and Lowell his entire life. Mike struggled with a cognitive disability, many health challenges and a stuttering condition, yet found ways to connect with those around him, stayed engaged in the community, and was fiercely loyal to family and friends. He loved sharing funny stories and talking about things he had read. His gentleness and kindness will be missed.

Mike was active in MassCann, Libertarian and Wiccan groups, and regularly attended Comic Con events in the area. He was known for his passion for collectibles and particularly sought out unique pieces of Dr. Who memorabilia. He inherited a love for cooking from his mother, always looking for a new recipe to experiment with and to share the results with family and friends. He rejoiced when he finally got the right mix of ingredients for his homemade Pad Thai. Mike loved movies and music. He introduced his nieces to science fiction classics like Star Wars and Star Trek, and kept them in supply of Hayao Miyazaki films each Christmas. He shared their love of Totoro, Howl, No Face, Kiki and Ponyo and enjoyed conversations about the characters. Recently, he learned that his niece Caitlin had conducted Ozzy Osbourne’s Crazy Train with marching band at a football game – something he thought was just wonderful. He shared his pride and delight watching videos of recent performances and was so glad she both knew and enjoyed his favorite song.

In recent years, Mike was an active member at the Renaissance Club in Lowell where he made many new friends. This supportive community was very important to him, especially since his immediate family had all passed and he continued to struggle with his disability and health, both losing his job and having a harder time getting around. Yet despite all his challenges, Mike was always glad to see you, never complained, and looked forward to connecting and sharing stories. Mike was predeceased by his parents Albert and Elizabeth Maloney and his brother, Steven Maloney, all of Chelmsford. He is survived by his sister in law, Cynthia Maloney, and two beloved nieces, Caitlin and Maggie Maloney, of Westford.

A service in his memory will be held on Star Wars Day, Saturday, May 4 at 10 am at the Blake Chelmsford Funeral Home, 24 Worthen Street in Chelmsford. Mike will be buried next to his parents and brother at Pine Ridge Cemetery in Chelmsford.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Mike’s memory to the Renaissance Club, 176 Walker Street, Lowell, MA 01854.

Mike was my cousin, as my mother (Catherine "Kay" Doran) and Mike's late mother, Betty, were first cousins; their mothers were sisters.

Growing up and living in RI, we did not see the Maloneys frequently, but time and distance did not diminish our fondness and love for them. Throughout Betty's lifetime, my mother kept in close touch with her and they regularly relayed news and greetings from our respective families.

After Mike's father Bert passed away, Mike and I kept in closer touch than we had previously, and we emailed each other fairly regularly. Unfortunately, we did not see each other as often as we would have liked, although we each expressed a genuine desire to get together when the warmer weather arrived.

I came to know Michael as a very bright, funny, thoughtful, nice, good guy. I always enjoyed hearing from him and seeing him. I know he was incredibly proud of his two nieces, Caitlin and Maggie, and that he loved them dearly.

My mother and I are deeply saddened by Mike's passing. We shall remember him fondly and will keep him in our prayers.

Sincerely,
Gerald Timothy Doran
