Following Jan. 6 charges, Peter Moloney leaves Long Island funeral home business


The Moloney chain of family-run funeral homes, which counts seven locations on Long Island, will be moving forward without the involvement of its longtime vice president, Peter Moloney.

The move was announced Wednesday, and comes some seven months after Peter Moloney was charged with assaulting officers during the Jan. 6, 2021, riot in Washington D.C.

He has maintained his innocence.

Still, it was announced that Peter Molony’s ownership stake in the family business has been fully transferred to Dan Moloney Jr., president of Moloney Family Funeral Homes, through what was described as a mutual agreement.

Peter and his son Connor Moloney “have fully transitioned away from involvement” in the business, the announcement reads.

“It has been a privilege to care for the community and to work with great people throughout our years at Moloney’s,” reads a joint statement from Peter and Connor Moloney. “While our commitment to serving the communities of Long Island remains steadfast, after much consideration we have decided to pursue other opportunities on our own and we are excited about our future.”

The family’s funeral homes have been in business since 1933. There are now seven on Long Island: Lake Ronkonkoma, Holbrook, Bohemia, Hauppauge, Central Islip, Port Jefferson and Center Moriches.

“Our family has served the Long Island community for over 90 years,” said Dan Moloney, Jr. “We look forward to continuing this relationship for generations to come.”
