Reflections for Correctional Officer Colonel Gregory Guy Malloy

Col. Malloy,
On today the 10th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of Florida. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.

He was one of the best men, I have ever worked for. This day was horrific for so many. “Greg” Colonel Malloy... was one of the good ones! The dept. lost a great man that day, many lost a friend and a leader and his family lost a wonderful husband and father.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Thank you for your service, Col. Malloy. You have made the world a safer place and are a true hero. Today I was privileged to cycle 52 miles in honor of your service during the TX Wheels of Justice ride out of Conroe, TX.

I remember February 2, 2011 like it was yesterday. I sat watching the Helicopters hover over the area and listening to the sound of numerous sirens enroute to the area of the scene. The amount of radio traffic, I knew something terrible was wrong. Only to later hear the end of watch call for you. Tears began to flow, for I knew we had lost a great Supervisor and friend on that day. I'll never forget all the mornings that you would greet me at the gate with a smile and a Good Morning Sarge. You are gone but not forgotten. Rest in Peace my friend.

After posting a reflection this earlier month, I was motivated to do something just a little bit more to remember you Col. Gregory Guy Malloy. I went to the O.D.M.P. Store and purchased another Memorial Band to wear on my left wrist. I received the band in the mail just a few days ago. I now wear one for you and one for a fellow Jackson County Deputy Sheriff killed in the line of duty Jan. 30, 2007. Your sacrifice will NEVER be forgotten!

It has been three years since your E.O.W. Col. Malloy. I want to let your family, friends, and fellow officers know that your bravery and ultimate sacrifice on Feb. 2 2011 will never be forgotten. I was working patrol duty that fateful day, and it pained me to know that we had lost another good man in the line of duty. Watch over us from above, we have the watch down here.

Mark, Art, Tyler and I went back into the swamp today, like we do every year. Even though you and I had only met once before that day, I'll never forget you. You didn't have to go with us that day but you did anyway and I will always remember that. Rest in peace brother.

Two years ago today. I will never forget the feeling of hearing "shots fired" come across the radio. I never knew that someone I had never even met could hold such a special place in my heart. You will always be a hero to all of us!

I was attending annual training at NWFRC/Washington CI watching the clock and counting the minutes until I could go home. That was when our instructor came into the room crying. He made the announcement that less than 50 miles from us fellow officer had been shot. Only a few minutes later, we found out that Colonel Greg Malloy had died at the hands of a former inmate responsible for the murder of his both his parents. I, like most of you, never thought such an event would hit close to home. Colonel Malloy was a hometown boy. He worked his way up through the ranks at several local prisons. I personally worked with as my Captain. He was a quite man that perked up at the mention of fishing or hunting. His work to protect our community will never be forgotten or taken for granted.
