Donald was born December 31st 1933 in Waterbury, CT, the son of the late Harold and Helen (Lockwood) Maloney. He attended both St. Francis Xavier and Leavenworth High School. Donald spent 48 years working as a sheet metal fabricator at Timex Corp until his retirement. In retirement, his work ethic led him to a second vocation as a driver for Labonne’s Supermarket in Watertown. Donald was an avid sports fan and excelled at playing softball and football. He also enjoyed traveling, especially his many trips to Myrtle Beach SC, California and Cape Cod. Donald also looked forward to the annual Lockwood family reunion at Quassy. One of Donald’s favorite passions was spending time perfecting his prized back yard. He was proud to be a Bunker Hill resident and enjoyed socializing with his neighbors. He will be greatly missed by all who were blessed to know and love him.
