More Event Information
A lover of life and the people living it alongside him, Matt Maloney shared his bright light with so many. A generous soul, with infectious wit and sense of humor, Matt made all in his presence smile.
Though Matt was probably best known as the area’s beloved golf course superintendent, Matt also loved the outdoors and hunting, working on cars, and animals – especially dogs; but above all, Matt loved people. He enjoyed entertaining family and friends with his stories and anecdotes, one liners and nicknames. Matt was a faithful friend to many, and could light up a room with ease.
We invite you to join us in celebrating Matt’s life! Be ready to celebrate as Matt would – sharing your stories, your laughter, and your own light.

About the Fund
The purpose of the Matt Maloney Memorial Fund is to invest in the Southeast Kansas Junior Golf Leagues, and the youth who participate in their programs. Funds will be used to grant financial support to area programs, beginning with Parsons, Kansas in 2021.
While youth learn to play the game of golf in Junior Golf Leagues, they also learn much-needed life skills such as strength of character, resilience, self-confidence, and problem-solving skills.
