Thomas Michael Malloy Obituary - Hill Funeral Home

Arrangements

A celebration of his life will be held on Tuesday, April 12, at The Medallion Club, 5000 Club Drive, Westerville, from 5:30 – 9PM.

Tom despised formality and stuffiness - our family encourages you to wear bright colors to match those crazy golf shirts he often wore.

Tom was one of several guys who walked on to the Bowling Green Lacrosse Team and helped transform it into a powerhouse of both winning and camaraderie.
'TM' was respected by his teammates on and off the field for his sense of humor, determination and always ready to host a good time.
While we were close in college I regret we did not stay in touch as we should have. We all need true friends like Tom in our lives.
Be at peace Dear Friend, I enjoyed every minute we spent together.

Obituary for Thomas Michael Malloy

Thomas Michael Malloy 1966-2022

Thomas Michael Malloy

10/19/1966 - 04/07/2022

Tom left us on April 7, 2022. A fighter to the end, he was looking forward to the upcoming golf season and spending time with his family and friends.

God broke the mold when Tom was born to William (Pat) and Eileen Malloy on October 19th, 1966, in Philadelphia PA. Left with decades of fond and colorful memories are his siblings Sharon Malloy of Chicago, IL and Kristen Foley and her husband Dave of Bluffton SC.

Tom’s children were his greatest pride and joy. His daughter Kelsie graduated from Ohio University and is continuing with her studies to become a Nurse Practitioner. Tom was especially happy to see Kelsie become engaged to her fiancé Michael McDermott earlier this year.

His son Conor also attended Ohio University before graduating from Hocking Technical College this winter. He just began his career with a move to Madison WI to work in sample management for Eurofins Scientific. Tom was so proud to see him begin this next phase of life.

Tom was a lifelong resident of Westerville. Friends have reached out remembering their Annehurst days and time spent lifeguarding at Annehurst Pool.

He graduated from Westerville South High School in 1985 and was a member of the football team and ski club. The friendships he made then remain to this day.

After Westerville South, Tom went to Bowling Green State University and graduated with a BA. While there, Tom took up lacrosse; a passion that continued through his adult years.

After BGSU Tom moved back to Westerville where he married Debbie Bing. While they were no longer married, Deb was a great source of comfort to Tom as he battled cancer.

Tom was a senior executive in the plastics industry with a career spanning over 30 years.

Tom was active in Westerville, first with the Zoning Board of Appeals and then working to grow lacrosse in Westerville. He spent years coaching youth lacrosse. First at Genoa Middle School and then at St. Paul’s - always having winning seasons. His family received a touching message from the mother of one of his players saying that Tom believed in her son when others did not. That was Tom in a nutshell.

Sharing memories of Tom would not be complete without mentioning his second home – The Medallion Club. Tom loved being a member there and was serving as Club President on the Board of Directors at the time of his passing. Tom and his friends were notorious for their bright and humorous golf shirts they wore for special outings. He loved his friends; the good cigars and even better times they often shared.

Tom’s smile and kind nature will be remembered by everyone who knew him. When you think of him, we hope you think of him that way.

No flowers, please. If you would like to honor Tom, please consider OhioHealth Hospice. Our family was grateful for their kindness and compassion. https://foundation.ohiohealth.com/grant/hospice-giving

What would have made Tom the happiest is for you to go and spend time with a friend sharing funny stories from his life.

A celebration of his life will be held on Tuesday, April 12, at The Medallion Club, 5000 Club Drive, Westerville, from 5:30 – 9PM.
