Dear Shannon, My sincere condolences for your loss. While we have never met, I have had the pleasure of being a client of Jame’s for nearly a decade. He was a kind and gentle person and I will never forget him. I will be praying for you and your family as you journey through your grief. I know very well the hardship of cancer and it’s affects on you as a spouse and the impact it has on a family because I have walked in your shoes. I also know that one day the pain of grief will lessen. Till then I encourage you to simply “feel” everything and let all those emotions come and take you where they will take you. Plus I lead a grief support group at our church (FBCI) on the island called “ if you feel you need something like that. Hugs to you and your family.

I have known James for about 7 years now as a boss and a father figure.. he was someone that would actually listen and care.. by far the best boss I could ever hope to be one day. You will be remembered and respected for many years to come.. i hope your family heals and gets through this tough time and finds peace... I wish I could have told you how much of an impact you had on my life.. you have seen me at my worst and at my greatest and never gave up on me... thank you James Maloney....

My heart and prayers go out to Shannon and the family during this time of sadness. While the family had worked to prepare for this day and knew it was coming, there will still be a hole that James filled that no one else will ever be able to fill. There is I am sure a great deal of comfort knowing he is no longer suffering and is at peace. God Bless Deena

The Family of James Maloney is relieved, yet saddened to share the news that his fierce battle with cancer is finally over.  He was a fighter to the bitter end and the Fourth was with him as he made his departure at 9:25pm on Friday, the 4th of May, 2019.

On a serious note, Mike Holton made sure that James received a visit from Douglas Cone of Whitemarsh Island Baptist Church and we can proudly proclaim that on May 3rd, James confirmed his flight and Heaven was the final the destination.  After building the very successful Maloney’s Landscape Management since 1997, James is now enjoying the weed free landscapes of God’s perfectly manicured gardens without concern for weeds, fungus, lawn maintenance or sprinkler repairs.

James will always be remembered for his love of Jim Beam, his incredibly dry sense of humor and a recent affinity for cookies and Blow Pops.  He bids farewell to his wife of 6 years (rounding up a month’ish), Shannon Maloney, 4 furry children, Alice, Kati, Tucker and Poodle the cat;  his Mom, Linda Moore (& Gene); sister Lisa Diane Proper (& Steve), nieces/nephews Amber, Daniel, Stephen, Gabby and Olivia; all his favorite aunts and uncles far too many cousins to count and great group of friends.  He is predeceased by his Dad, James Maloney Sr and sister Monica Lynn Ryan.

James chose cremation and will be sprinkled across some of his favorite fishing holes.

We would love it if you wanted to “pay” your respects in the form of donations to either of the following or the charity of your choice:

MDAnderson  gifts.mdanderson.org

Hospice Savannah  https://www.hospicesavannah.org/give

The family will be hosting a private celebration of James at a later date.
