Loy Malone, age 78, of Kankakee passed away Tuesday, December 15, 2020 at his home. He was born June 27, 1942 in Vanduser, MO, the son of Hubby & Leatha Frazier Malone. Loy married Donna Marie Hess on November 19, 1960 in Herscher. Surviving are his wife, Donna Malone of Kankakee; three sons, Brian Malone of Kankakee, David & Amanda Malone of Bonfield, and Kevin Malone of Kankakee; five grandchildren, Brian & Leslie Malone, DJ & Shyanne Malone, Joseph Malone, Tiffany & Sean Zirkle, and Brandon Malone; and 12 great-grandchildren.

Loy worked as a mechanic with union local 681 at Volcan Materials Stone Quarry “Lehigh Stone” from 1963 until he retired in 2001, after 38 years of service. He was an avid antique collector of depression glass, wrenches, primitives, Aladdin lamps, and antique tractors. He was always tinkering with something in the garage. His prize antique was his 1951 Ford Victoria car. Loy was a past member of the Irwin Lions Club, Thee Olde Time Farm Show, and Tri-K Pigeon & Bantam Club. Everyone was always welcome to Loy’s garage or home to reminisce or just hang out and no one was ever refused a helping hand when in time of need. Loy is preceded in death by his parents; one sister, Carolyn Eakins; and one brother, Hub Malone. Private services will be held. Memorials may be made to Uplifted Care.
