An East Baltimore native, Mr. Molloy graduated from City College in 1939 and joined the Army in 1942. In the military, he served in World War II as a tank commander while stationed in France and Germany.
Upon leaving the service in 1946, he lived in Anne Arundel County and worked as a bus driver for the Mass Transit Administration. He later worked as head of security at the Westinghouse Bay Bridge plant.
He was active in the Moose and Elk lodges and was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. He also enjoyed traveling.
He retired in 1982 and soon after moved to Recovery, in Queen Anne's County on the Eastern Shore.

The family asks that contributions be made to the American Cancer Foundation in lieu of flowers.
