  1. Mary Ann, I was saddened to learn just today of Bill’s death. We went to grade school and high school together. He was so funny. I was looking forward to the day when he would bring you to a reunion so we could meet. We figured you had to have a sense of humor also. Our reunions won’t be the same without him. My condolences to you and to the family. May he rest in peace. Linda Hyland Roth

  2. Bill Maloney helped me in a way that few people were able to do. When life seemed most difficult, he helped me pull up my boot straps and get help simultaneously. I will forever be grateful.

  3. Mary Ann, I am so very sorry for your loss. Bill was a great counselor and wise man. I am so sorry, too, that I couldn’t make the funeral. Know you are in my prayers.

  4. Dear Marianne and family,
    I just learned of Bill’s death moments ago. There has been a long gap from when he shared news about his trip and then the reasons for his return. Bill and I hadn’t seen each other for years, but we had shared the milestone of grad school together, commuting together from Bellingham to Seattle, each having a young child. The trip was always faster as we would debate approaches of practice, etc. Bill lived life fully with a great skepticism and sense of humor. I will miss his annual holiday letter as I will remember him.

  7. Dear Mary Ann and family,

    My deepest sympathies and condolences. I met Bill last year when he began leading a group I was a part of before he left for his extended “dream” vacation / adventure. I was anxiously awaiting his return this Spring. While Bill only led my group for 6 months, he had a profound impact on me and others in our group. He was present for me in one of the most difficult transitions of my life and did amazing work with us. I will be forever grateful for having met Bill and “worked” with him. He made a difference in my life and I will never forget him.
    May God be with you during your time of grief.

  9. Mary Ann, Virginia & family – I was so sad to hear about Bill. He was a great neighbor. He took such pride in his property and loved to be outside working away when he had the time. We would talk about our dogs, as Buffy would follow Bill everywhere and we would talk about what our children were up to. He was so proud of Virginia. Bill always took the time to stop say hello and chat. He will be missed by all of us and my thoughts and prayers are with Mary Ann, Virginia and the family.

  10. I will fondly remember many kayaking trips with Bill and the Wilmington Trail Club. When Bill was paddling, his sense of humor, good nature, and lively conversation always made the day better. My sincere condolences. He will be sorely missed.

  12. My deepest condolences to the Maloney family, may you find comfort in prayer and the beautiful words of Isaiah 25:8 where God promises us that He will soon eliminate all death and suffering.

  13. Mary Ann,
    I am devasted to learn of Bill’s passing. Our hearts go out to you and your family. I feel so very blessed to have gotten to know him in a very close way as part of Christ Renews His Parish program that we did together. Of course the real “great stuff” was meeting as a small, faith sharing team every week for months to form as team for the next CRHP weekend. Bill’s observations for our group and for me, personally were so insightful, so wise. He gifted all of us by sharing those talents with us and with the parish. I can only imagine what amazing things he did for the many people he counseled all through his career. May God lift you up and bless you with Peace and the knowledge that Bill is with God.

  16. Dear Maryann and Family
    I was very saddened by the news of Bill. I concerned a friend and someone who helped me through difficult times in my life. Bill is first rate all the way. We as members of resurrection parish will sorely miss him.
    Gone too soon. May God watch over his family

  17. Dear Mary Ann and Virginia, my deepest condolences for your loss. I’m sorry we won’t be able to be there this week. I pray for your support and healing in the course of time.

    I feel the sadness especially today today as I see the obituary and picture of Bill on the funeral home website. It’s sinking in that he’s gone.
    I’m so glad we saw him out here just before he left for his trip to Asia. He said he figured he better do it while he still could. Good timing, Bill! I’ll remember Bill for our times caving together, rooming together at meditation retreats, talking and complaining about managed care the the changing field of psychotherapy, sharing our spiritual lives with each other, and talking honestly about what was happening in our lives… he was a good friend. He will be missed by many.

    With sadness, tears, and sympathy, Fran

  19. Just returned home from vacation and heard about Bill. Mary Ann, Virginia and Lenley I am so sorry you have lost your partner, father and grandfather. Even though I did not know Bill personally we shared stories about your vacations, how he loved his daughter, granddaughter and without a doubt you Mary Ann. You are in my thoughts.

  22. Our sympathies to you Mary Ann. Bill was an adventurer who loved to see what was around the next bend in the river. We shared many good times kayaking and he will be missed dearly.

  23. I am so sorry to hear this. Bill was such a good neighbor. We had many conversations over the fence. He and I solved many of the problems of the world . The only one we couldn’t solve involved that groundhog…I shall miss Bill.
