John A. Maloche was born on May 11, 1953, at the Castle Air Force Base in Merced, California. He was one of nine children born from the union of the late Leo Maloche and Charlotte (DuMoulin) Maloche. He graduated from Monroe High School with the Class of 1971, and throughout the course of his life he would complete college courses to further his education.
John worked in Supervision in the Hazardous Materials industry. He loved his position and valued it so much that his family often jokingly said John preferred work over spending time with them. A great conversationalist, he appreciated talking with anyone and seemed as if he never met a stranger.
When John wasn’t working, he enjoyed watching ME TV, relaxing to his favorite Western shows and movies. He also loved to drop a line in the water at his favorite local fishing holes around Monroe.
John was a food connoisseur proud to have taught his son, Michael, how to grill his favorite meats being polish sausage and hamburger, but more importantly how to keep the house from burning down while grilling! Daughter-in-law Melissa was also no stranger to John’s helpful input as he instructed her on how to perfect making chili.
John A. Maloche, age 67, of Romulus passed away at 3:31 p.m. on Monday, November 23, 2020, at Beaumont Hospital, Taylor.
His passing was preceded by both of his parents; and a brother, Joseph Maloche.
To cherish his memory, he leaves two sons: Michael Maloche (Melissa Blair) and Robert Maloche; three sisters: Lisa (John) Reddington, Nancy (Dennis) Eby, Karen (Kirby) Boron; four brothers: Gary (Felicia) Maloche, Donald Maloche (Robert Figuereo), William “Bill” (Patty) Maloche, and Timothy (Karen) Maloche; and several nieces and nephews.
