C. WILLIAM NEUHAUSER
C. William Neuhauser best known as Bill died on March 9, 2017. He was 91 years old.
Bill was born in his mother's bedroom at their home on Kalorama Road on February 24, 1926.
He attended local schools, graduating from Woodrow Wilson High School in 1944. Bill
then joined the Class of 1948 at Princeton University, served in the U.S. Marine Corps, and
graduated from the George Washington University after war's end.
Bill was married to the former Joan Schuyler Lawrence for 46 years until her untimely death in
1994. He then married his wife of 22 years Marie Pollock Cissel. Bill lived and worked in the
Washington metro area for many years. In the early 1950's he was a founding partner of the
DC brokerage firm Bellamah, Neuhauser, and Barrett. Bill's career subsequently shifted to the
shipping industry, where he held several positions including Senior Vice President of
Sea-Land Service the global container shipping company. He also was appointed to run the
National Maritime Council here in Washington. His knowledge of the ocean transport industry
led to Bill's being a guest lecturer at the Maine Maritime Academy for a number of years.
Perhaps though he was most proud of his 39 years' service on the Board of Directors of the
Sequoia Fund mutual fund.
Bill is survived by his wife, Marie, better known as Rink; and his two children, Charles of
Tuxedo Park, New York and Anne (Trina) of Alexandria, Virginia. He is also survived by a
grandson; as well as four step-children and eight step-grandchildren.
The family would like to especially thank Theresa Mireku and the staff at Carriage Hill of
Bethesda for their selfless help and kindness.
Funeral service at the Chapel at Oak Hill Cemetery in Georgetown and burial will take place
on Tuesday, March 21 at 11 a.m.
For those who may prefer an alternative to flowers to honor Bill's memory, a suggestion would
be a contribution in his name to the Rocky Neck Art Colony, 6 Wonson St., Gloucester MA
