William F. Malloy

U.S. Navy

Bill Malloy likes to be around big families. The oldest brother of William and Agnes Malloy’s eight  children, Bill grew up on Dartley Street in Belltown, and then on nearby Revonah Avenue. As a member of the third Malloy generation in Stamford, he attended Belltown Elementary, St. John’s Elementary and St. Basil’s Prep, where he graduated in 1960. After high school Bill attended Villanova University where he joined the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC). 

After graduation, Bill was assigned to the U.S.S. Independence (CV-62), a more than 1,000-foot- long Forrestal-class Aircraft Carrier deployed with a complement of over 5,000 Navy and Marines  (another really big family) to the South China Sea off the coast of Vietnam between May and December of 1965.   While onboard he served as an Ensign in the Engineering Department, and he earned the Naval Unit Commendation, the National Defense Medal, and the Vietnam Service Medal. After active duty Bill returned to Stamford, married the love of his life, Evon Deveau, and joined the Naval Reserves where he was honorably discharged as a Lieutenant in 1974.

When he returned Bill also joined his Dad in the insurance business, where he has worked as a licensed insurance agent, a licensed real estate broker and a Certified Insurance Consultant. Bill now owns the William F. Malloy Insurance Agency along with his son, Matthew.

To be sure, Bill still likes to be around a lot of people. He has also served on the Stamford Board of Representatives, as Chairman of the Democratic City Committee, President of the Stamford Hibernians, Rogers School PTO President, a Cub Scout Den Leader, President of the Stamford Youth Hockey Association, President of the Stamford Insurance Board, and Director of the Professional Insurance Association of Connecticut and the Independent Insurance Agents of Connecticut. He is also now serving on the board of Connecticut Renaissance, helping people with substance abuse and mental health issues overcome their challenges.

Not to be outdone by his parents, Bill and his wife of now 52 years, Evon, raised their big family of eleven children in Shippan where they have resided for the last 45 years. Their favorite pastime is spending time with the kids and especially their twenty-two (!) grandchildren. 

Stamford COTY is happy to welcome William Malloy to our big family of distinguished veterans
