Mike was employed as a Tool and Die Designer, working for Simmons Fastener Corp, AmFast Corp, Blasch Precision Ceramics, and Albany International.

In his free time, Mike enjoyed working on projects around the house, gardening, hunting, fishing and anything involving the outdoors. He had a passion for drawing, sketching, painting, and sculpting. Many of his paintings can be seen gracing the walls of his relative’s homes.
He was a loving husband, father and grandfather and enjoyed spending quality time with his wife, children, and especially his two granddaughters, Erin and Megan. Mike loved to laugh, share stories and was quick to see the humor in things, even if it was at his own expense.
Survivors include his two sons James (Susan) Maloney of Mechanicville, and Jack Maloney of Stillwater, and daughter Kerry A. Maloney of Mechanicville, granddaughters Erin Lynn and Megan Elizabeth Maloney, along with many cousins. Mike was predeceased by his brother Maurice L. Maloney and sister Sheila E. Maloney.
