Walter J. Mallon, 78, of Tupper Lake, passed away at his home on Saturday, July 9, 2016.
Born March 29, 1938 in Brooklyn, he was the son of Walter and Margaret Wynn Mallon.
Walt grew up in Brooklyn. After high school, he worked various jobs as a psychiatric aide, bartender, longshoreman, and truck driver.
He was briefly married to Gail, whose name he had tattooed on his right forearm, but an annulment ended that union.
He was then drafted into the U.S. Army in 1961 serving in Germany during the Viet Nam Conflict, being discharged in 1963.
He married Mary Ann Durante in 1962 and joined the New York City Police Department in 1966, retiring in 1983 due to a job-related injury.
During his early years with the NYPD “he walked the beat,” and participated in many of the New York City parades.
In 1985 Walt married Stella Zuris in Brooklyn. In 1988 they relocated to Tupper Lake. Walt was an active member of the VFW.
He enjoyed boating and being with friends. He was a very generous spirit with a smile and a joke.
He is survived by his wife Stella; daughter, Margaret Peppe and her husband Edward; sons Michael Mallon and his wife Erin; Daniel Durante; Charles Mallon and his wife Janet; stepson Nicholas Perri. Also surviving are 10 grandchildren, three great-granddaughters, and a sister, Maureen Keeler and her husband George.
Walter was predeceased by his parents; his wife, Mary Ann; his younger brother Chris; and a sister, Elizabeth.
Calling hours are scheduled for Saturday, August 6 fromnoon to 3 p.m. at the Stuart-Fortune-Keogh funeral home.
Burial will follow at St. Alphonsus cemetery with full military honors and a reception at the VFW Post 3120.
In lieu of flowers those wishing to make memorial contributions are asked to consider the Tupper Lake Rescue Squad or High Peaks Hospice.
