‘Red’ Maloy, 77, of Macclenny dies

James LaFayette “Red” Mal­­oy, 77, died at his home in Macclenny on May 25, 2011. He was born May 19, 1934 in Samson, Ala. James, affectionately known as “Pa” by the many children he helped raise, moved to Jacksonville as a young boy with his family. After leaving Landon High School in the early 1950’s he began a lengthy career as an industrial welder in bridge construction and steel fabrication, working for such companies as Duval Engineering and Florida Machine and Foundry in Jacksonville and Mobile Pulley Works in Alabama.

A hard working man his entire life, James enjoyed going to work long before sunrise and didn’t mind working until late at night. When he wasn’t working or spending time with family, he also enjoyed fishing on the banks of his beloved Santa Fe River near Branford, playing gin rummy for hours with his wife, hunting in North Florida and Alabama, and riding his bicycle collecting aluminum cans and other scrap metal to sell.
