William John (Billy) Malone of Speonk, New York passed away January 20, 2022 following his dauntless battle with a recent illness. He was born in Brooklyn to Edwina Marie Proper and James Malone who both predeceased him as did his stepfather Leendert Proper. Billy was the devoted husband to his wife of 37 years, Teresa and the doting father of Ryan Malone and Adam Malone. He is survived by his loving siblings Donna Delucia (Domenic), Raymond Malone (MaryAngela), Michael Malone (Adriana), Deborah Malone and James Malone. His stepbrother Michael Proper recently predeceased him. Billy is also survived by his adoring nieces and nephews Alison Shearer (Kevin, Dante & Maria), Jaclynn Basiaga (Steven), Anna Ward (Zach), Nicola Delucia, Samantha Malone, Zachary Malone and Hannah Malone. Billy graduated from Deer Park High School where he was a member of the track team and was president of his fraternity. Upon graduation he moved with his family to Westhampton Beach where he met his future wife Teresa and began working in the flooring business, eventually starting a thriving business of his own. His easy-going manner and infectious smile would light up any face he encountered, especially his sons and nieces and nephews each year when he would take them boating on “cousin’s day.” Aside from boating he enjoyed playing the guitar, which was self-taught. His expressive, joyful dancing was always the life of the party. Billy could analyze a problem and almost instantly come up with a practical solution. He could build almost anything with his hands from childhood forts & go-carts to Halloween costumes for his boys to complete kitchen makeovers. Billy was the family man every man with a family aspires to be and his relentless lust for life will always be an inspiration to us all.
