Edward Francis “Teddy” Maloney: October 11 1968 – September 11, 2001

September 11, 2012   |  

When I was RightGirl, writing at girlontheright.com, I promised the families of Teddy Maloney and Ken Basnicki that I would post these tributes for as long as the blog existed. Though GOTR still exists, I have long since sold it. I thank Chris and the gang here at Freedom Bunker for giving me a place to pay tribute to the men who were murdered, just for the crime of going to work in America.

On a sunny Tuesday morning, one month before his 33rd birthday, Edward Maloney III – known to all as Teddy – left for a typical day at the office. The TradeSpark offices of Cantor Fitzgerald were located on the 104th floor of One World Trade Center, NY, NY.

At 9:03am on that sunny morning, September 11, 2001, United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the building, approximately 5 floors below where Teddy worked.

Teddy Maloney died that day, along with 684 other Cantor Fitzgerald employees located on the 101st-105th floors.

Born in Berlin, Germany to Sally and Edward, Teddy, his brother Mark and his sister Sally were raised in Andover Ct. While attending Proctor Academy, Teddy played Varsity hockey. In November 2002, Proctor dedicated the Maloney Memorial Ice Rink to his memory.

Though he worked in the city, Teddy and his wife lived in Darien, CT. Cantor Fitzgerald had promised Maloney a move to the Darien office, to become effective the end of 2001 or early 2002. The Rye Rangers of Rye, NY played just up I-95 from Darien, CT. Teddy played with them. He was one of three Rye Rangers who worked for Cantor Fitzgerald who were killed that day. Just before Christmas, 2001, the Rye Rangers played a fundraiser game for the families of the 3 victims. The hope was to raise a little money to give the surviving children a good Christmas, while the widows awaited the Cantor payouts.

When Teddy died on September 11, 2001, his daughter Mason was 14 months old. After he disappeared – presumed, as so many were, to be alive and missing – Mason refused to let go of her father’s photograph. She slept in his room, in his bed. She waited for Daddy to return.

His beloved wife Brinley, 29, who he had spoken to just moments before the attack, was 7 months pregnant with their second daughter. Teddy Bray Maloney was one of the precious babies born in the aftermath of the tragedy – a final memorial to the lost fathers.

On September 28, 2001, a memorial was held in Rye, NY at The Church of the Resurrection. The memory of Edward Francis “Teddy” Maloney III was laid to rest, surrounded by friends and family, including his father, Edward Francis Maloney II.
