In memory of
JAMES PATRICK MALONE
age 83, native of Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo, Ireland. Former husband of Eileen (nee Hamilton); beloved father of Ann, Nora of New York, NY, Eileen Wrobleski of Milton, GA, Kathleen of Seattle, WA, and Jack of Columbus, OH; grandfather of three; great-grandfather of two; brother of Nora "Nodie" "Noreen" Kerrigan of New Orleans, LA, Mary Jo of Baton Rouge, LA, and the late Eileen McSherry of Dublin, Ireland; uncle and great-uncle of many, devoted and loving friend to many. U.S. Army National Guard veteran. "Jimmy" immigrated in 1957 and settled on the West Side of Cleveland, amongst many of his County Mayo contemporaries. He was a retired Int'l Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Asbestos Workers Local 3, Cleveland, OH; member of St. Patrick's Gaelic Football team; an avid handball player with the moniker "Lefty;" Cleveland Handball Championship champion 1969, All Ireland Senior Handball Champion 2010. In the last 20 years of his life, he divided his time between his beloved Ireland that never left his heart and mind, and the USA. He loved life passionately, possessing an innocence from which he never gave up on humanity. At Jimmy's Pub, Ballina, Ireland in 2013, with his hands raised above his head, he emphatically shouted, over and over again: "I've loved every minute of my life!! I've loved every minute of my life!!" He had a rich, beautiful baritone singing voice, and sang frequently until the end. He passed away on December 24, 2018 after a valiant three and a half month battle with asbestos-compromised lung failure. He will be missed by many for a long time to come. Friends are invited to his Funeral Mass Monday, January 14, St. Angela Merici Church (20970 Lorain Rd., Fairview Park, 44126) at 11:30 A.M.
