William H. “Bill” Maurhoff passed away peacefully on Thursday November 10, 2022 at the age of 86 in the company of his beloved wife, Charlotte (Buller). Born in New Rochelle, NY on October 16, 1936, he attended Phillips Academy Andover, earned his B.A. at Yale University and his M.B.A. at New York University.
A commercial banker for twenty-seven years, Bill began his career at Chase Manhattan serving in both the New York and Buenos Aires locations, followed by eight years at Chemical Bank, which included several years in both the London and Sao Paulo offices. Upon returning to the States, Bill relocated to New England, where he was a senior officer at Indian Head National Bank in Nashua, NH followed by several years with The New Dartmouth Bank in Manchester, NH.
In 1986, he formed Maurhoff Management Development, taking his years of international and commercial banking experience and developing and delivering a variety of lending, cash flow, account management and negotiating seminars to lenders at all levels throughout the U.S. and abroad.
Bill played in various softball leagues over the years. As he grew older, he began to realize that there were no softball leagues designed particularly for senior aged players in eastern Massachusetts, so he set out to create one. With the assistance of some like-minded softball enthusiasts the EMASS softball league, based in Massachusetts, was formed. More recently, he was a proud team member of “The Geezers”, a Chicago area senior softball team.
An oenophile, Bill truly knew the pleasures of a fine vintage. He enjoyed the arts, especially the Quad-City Symphony and would proudly tell you all about his grandchildren.
Bill was predeceased by his parents Howard L. and Ruth (Marsh) Maurhoff, his sister Ruthanne M. Harrison, and his first wife, Patricia M. Crossan. He is survived by his wife, Charlotte Buller Maurhoff of Rock Island, his three daughters, Kim (Scott) Brown of Westmoreland, NH; Amy (Kenneth) Hood of MA; Margaret (John) Barney of Marlow, NH and his son Keith (Jennifer) Maurhoff of Nashua, NH; in addition to nine grandchildren.
Services will be Wednesday, November 16th at 5 p.m. at Wendt Funeral Home, with visitation two hours prior to the service. Memorial Donations may be made to the Quad City Symphony or the EMASS Senior Softball League.
