Safe Home: August 2022 

Andrew F. Maloney
December 1, 1938 – June 27, 2022

Andrew F. Maloney 83, a Florida resident, passed away peacefully under the care of Hope Hospice on Monday, June 27, 2022. He was born December 1, 1938, in County Mayo, Ireland to the late Patrick “Sonny” and Winifred (nee Mulkeen) Maloney.
Andy moved to Cleveland, Ohio with his wife Martha in 1967, where they were proud members of the West Side Irish American and the Irish Heritage Clubs. He worked for over thirty years with Schirmer Construction and the Laborers Union Local 310. Both he and Martha moved to Florida in 2008 to be closer to their family.

Andy loved everything Irish, especially singing Irish ballads, dancing, listening to Irish entertainment, and telling stories to anyone who would listen. He was an avid Gaelic football fan, cheering for his home county of Mayo. He also loved to follow Notre Dame football with Martha.

He made several trips back to Ireland to visit his extensive family and friends. Later in life, Andy adopted a dog named Danny Boy, who brought him great joy during his days with his dear friend Betty.
