OBITUARYJ. B. “Dickie” Maloy

In his younger days he could always be found on or in the creek or in the woods and if he wasn’t there, he would for sure be found at the pool hall. He loved to fish and hunt and very much enjoyed his hunting trips to Colorado with family and friends. He also loved to eat and play dominos. Six’s were his favorite and by the time one hand was played, he knew what everyone else had.
