Obituary: Edward W. “Ted” Malley
Published in The Boston Globe on March 1, 2016
MALLEY, Edward W. “Ted” Age 73, of Scituate, raised in Cohasset, passed away on February 27, 2016.
Devoted father of Teddy of New Mexico, Kaitlin Baptiste (Ed) of Washington, D.C., Greg (Liah) of Watertown, and Michael Crosby of Ft. Lauderdale. Grandfather of Ben, Theo, Hugo, Sam, and Miles Baptiste. Former husband of Maureen P. (Barry). Son of Barbara (Beyer) of Hingham and the late Edward Malley of Cohasset. Devoted brother of Kathie Malley-Morrison (Frank) of Westwood, Tim (Kathy) of Hingham, and the late Stephanie Vaughan Malley. He also leaves behind his beloved dogs, Tucker and Wendy.
Mr. Malley was a graduate of the Moses Brown school in Providence, RI and of Colby College. He was a 3 sport athlete who went on to be a nationally ranked squash player. Ted loved to be at sea, harpooning tuna and swordfish from the Gulf of Mexico to George’s Bank. Ted also loved to fly, building his own Pitt’s Special and flying it from Boston to Florida and spending summers flying as a spotter pilot both locally and in Tunisia. Perhaps most of all Ted loved to spend time with his kids. He taught his children to swim and skate when most are still learning to walk. He logged countless hours at the hockey rink, devoting himself to the sport right alongside his sons as both a father and a coach. He turned his children’s home into every child’s dream, maintaining a pond skating rink, complete with Zamboni service.
Visiting hours will be held on Thursday, March 3, 2016 from 2-6 pm in McNamara-Sparrell Funeral Home, 160 So. Main St. (across from St. Anthony Church), COHASSET.
