Following a very full 93 years of life Bob, of West View PA, passed away peacefully on August 4, 2019 with family by his side. He was born on November 6, 1925 in Bellevue, PA attended North Catholic High School before transferring to Bellevue High School. He proudly served in WWII and after his discharge attended The Duffs School of Business leading him to a long successful career in the insurance industry. In 1960 he founded Fidelity Insurance Agency and grew the company to later employ three of his children. As his business grew he became known as R. J. (Bob) Malone of Fidelity Insurance Agency where there is “never a charge for advice.”

Bob was a proud member of Highland Country and an avid golfer (and gin player). He and his wife, Mary, were fixtures at Highland & Rico’s and instantly made friendships with everybody they encountered. Some have suggested he single-handedly kept I. C. Light in production! Bob was also a long-time member of the Eureka Federal Savings & Loan board of directors and served on the West View Water Authority.

He is preceded in death by his loving wife Mary, sons Michael & Bob and his parents Mary & Regis. Bob is survived by his children David (Nancy), Mary Anne Shreckengast (Keith) and Paul (Madeline); daughter–in–laws Susan (Michael) and Katie (Bob); grandchildren Zach, Callahan, Max, Ian, Leah, Margo, Shannon, Mary, Patrick, Megan, Jane, Devin, Mary Katherine, Bob & Maggie. He also was blessed with five beautiful great-grandchildren.

A viewing will take place at Devlin’s Funeral Home 806 Perry Highway, Pittsburgh PA 15229 from 2:00pm to 8:00pm on Tuesday August 6, 2019 and a Mass of Christian Burial will be at St. Teresa of Avila in Ross Twp at 10:00am on Wednesday August 7, 2019.
