We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Maple Crest Funeral Home
Butch was born in Oshkosh on February 23, 1944 to Clifford and Grace (Dibble) Maloney, and passed away at the Wisconsin Veterans Home in King, WI on August 8, 2022, at the age of 78.
Butch was raised on a farm in the Poygan area and attended the White School, which was a one room school. He graduated in 1962 from Omro High School. He worked at Morgan Doors until enlisting in the Marines in 1964. He served his country in Vietnam. Upon returning home he was employed at Mercury Marine in Oshkosh. Butch finished his career there as a CNC Programmer in Fond du Lac, retiring in 2008 after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s.
In 1969 he married Barbara Hoyt. Barbara brought two sons to the marriage, whom Butch adopted and raised with love. Together they also had one son. Butch enjoyed their cabin in the north woods. He was not an avid deer hunter, but he did enjoy deer camp ever year with his boys and his close friend, Wayne Dunham. Not an avid deer hunter is putting it mildly, as the first few years at deer camp he did not even own a gun. In 2019 when Barbara was no longer able to care for him, Butch went to the Wisconsin Veterans Home in King, where he was well cared for. He was always treated with respect and with love in their hearts.
Butch is survived by Barbara, his wife of 53 years, and their children: Jack and Mark Maloney, his granddaughter: Caitlyn Maloney; brother: Scott (Lisa) Maloney of Park Falls; sister-in-law: Virginia Hoyt of Darien, IL; goddaughter: Nicole (Gary) Baumann and many nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his mother and father-in-law, Edward O and Mildred K (Dunn) Hoyt, a son, William Maloney, sisters, Carol Juedes and Judy Weeks and brother-in-law, Robert O. Hoyt.
The Funeral Service will be on Friday, August 12, 2022 at 1 pm at the chapel in Lakeview Memorial Park, 2786 Algoma Blvd., Oshkosh. The visitation will be on Friday at the chapel from 11 am until the time of the service.
The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to the nurses and staff at King and also Heartland Hospice for the loving care that has been given to Butch.
