I just did a research project on this fallen officer. I am humbled by what I have found out about Chief Malloy. What was most humbling was his very selfless service to his community; providing the children of his town a friend - he was noted of knowing most of their names (at the time). His death was truly tragic and it shows the uncertainty of the job. He should have lived for many more years selflessly serving his community. He is a man I would have liked to have met.

Rest easy, sir. Do know that there are people who still know about you and there are people who are still appreciative of your selfless service.
