The name Malone has been a fa-miliar
one in Freeport since 1901,
when the Malone family began spend-ing
summers here. But Raymond,
member of the Zoning Board of Ap-peals,
was born in Brooklyn. Ray
was educated in Freeport schools and
has maintained a keen interest in
Freeport education ever since.
He entered the Army as a private
in 1941 and emerged as a Captain in
1946. At a USO dance he met Amelia
Huvelie of-ManhattaLn and theyv.were*.''
married in 1942. At the end of the
war they returned to Freeport, where
they have since been busy raising four
children, Renee 14, Eileen 11, Ray-mond
Junior 8 and Stephen 7.
A typical Long Island commuter,
Ray takes the 7:32 each morning to
the city, -where he is one of the senior ' , __ ., ,

pany. As Eastern Ad Manager, Ray supervises a baker's dozen of
salesmen, arranges advertising seminars and manages to bring in
•well over a million dollars a year in ad billing for his company.
Vigorous, aggressive and public spirited Ray Malone has served
on numerous official boards and committees. From 1951 to 1952 he
served on the Transportation Committee, from 1952 to 1953 on the
Safety Council and from. 1954 to 1958 was a member of the Planning

Ray's favorite interest, expressed loud and clear and often, is the
continued improvement and betterment of Freeport. But he manages
to find time for a sail and a bit of fishing with the younger Malones in
"Freeport", says Ray, "is not only a great town now but it is show-ing
far more initiative and imagination than the majority of suburban
communitie s in anticipating and planning for future gr owth and impr ove -
ments. Thus its future is exceptionally sound. "
