A Great Man that will be truly missed. I had the pleasure of serving with him in the Ks National Guard. I am fortunate enough to have his memory with me by enjoying the ownership and riding the Harley that he once owned.

From Cheryl Malloy Boggess...

Expression of heartfelt love for all of Harry’s immediate family members. He was my cousin I remember him being in my life forever as I am the oldest of the Malloy’s baby, Dwight. Daddy is -heavenly 91 so Harry will still be dad’s young nephew. Just think what they all will be doing! God will have some of the biggest hearts in heaven with all the Malloy relatives in the clouds! Prayers and ❤️ much love!
