Mr. Joseph “Joey” Carson Malloy, age 58, went home to be with the Lord on January 5, 2020 surrounded by family. The family will receive friends from 6:00 – 8:00 PM Tuesday, January 7, 2020 at Miller-Rivers-Caulder Funeral Home. A Celebration of Life Service will be 3:00 PM Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at Forest Pine Church by Rev. Danny R. Malloy and Ricky Malloy, Sr. with burial to follow in the church cemetery.
Mr. Joey was born on July 12, 1961 in Cheraw, South Carolina, a son of the late Rev. Thomas Jr. and Lula Mae Malloy. He was a faithful member of Forest Pine Church where he played the piano in the church band. Joey loved attending church with his family, including his brothers, who also made up the group, The Malloy Brothers. He enjoyed playing the bass guitar, singing with his brothers and his oldest daughter who shared his love for music. Mr. Malloy also loved traveling, mainly with “his three girls,” and made sure to take a family vacation every year. Family was a number one priority in his eyes. In 2016, Joey became a “Papa” to a granddaughter and again in 2018 to a second “grandbaby.” Some people say Mr. Joey’s eyes “lit up” when he talked about all three of his grandbabies.
Mr. Malloy was also a proud Walmart Associate with over 20 years of service. He started at Walmart Distribution Center in Pageland, South Carolina then worked his way up to become a Field Project Supervisor traveling for Walmart Corporate where he led the way for new special projects for several Walmart stores and many Walmart stores remodel. He was always ready to work and through his battle at every check-up he always asked, “When can I go back to work, doc?” Mr. Joey leaves behind a beautiful legacy and such a positive attitude on all his family and friends so we will continue to honor his strength through his battle and be #MalloyStrong.
In addition to his parents, Joey was preceded in death by two nephews, Bryan R. Malloy and Michael Dean Malloy; brother-in-law, William J. Wallace, Sr.; and maternal grandmother Ancedill Cole Gainey.
Survivors include his wife of 33 years, Lisa Malloy of the home; two daughters, Brittany (Alan) Mathers and Nisa (Chris) Morton; two brothers, Ricky (Geraldine) Malloy, and Rev. Danny (Teresa) Malloy; one sister, Cindy Wallace; four nephews, WJ (Jenifer) Wallace, Ricky Malloy, Jr., RJ Yow, and Gabe Malloy; four nieces, Crystal (Honorable Rep. Richie) Yow, Jennifer Malloy, Denise Malloy, and Ava Malloy; three “grandbabies,” Adeline Mae Morton, Emma Grace Morton, and Joseph Alan “AJ” Mathers; and lifelong friend and “buddy”, David Caulder.
