Dayton

Henry “Hank” Maas, 79, passed away peacefully on March 13, 2024, after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s Disease and joined his beloved wife, Carol, to be with the Lord.


Hank was born on July 2, 1944, to Anton and Magdelena (Bernhardt) in Graz, Austria. He came to America at six years old with four siblings and grew up in Dayton, Ohio. His first job while attending college at the University of Dayton was at WHIO. He loved to tell the story about working with Phil Donahue. After college, Hank became a database administrator at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and retired after 30+ years.

Hank was an avid UD Flyers basketball fan and never missed a game if he could help it! Hank was also passionate about soccer! He was an avid referee and soccer coach for many years. Hank, his wife Carol, and others helped establish the Warrior Soccer Club, the Warrior Soccer Classic annual soccer tournament, and the Warrior Soccer Complex in Dayton, Ohio. He and Carol were deeply humbled by the dedication of Warrior Soccer Complex soccer fields in their honor for their years of dedication to the youth of their community.

 

Hank was also an enthusiastic photographer, and loved to take pictures everywhere he went whether it was the soccer fields, family events, or the 63 countries he visited with Carol.

 

Hank is preceded in death by his parents; beloved wife, Carol; brothers, Frank Maas and John Maas; and sisters, Magdelena (Larry) and Katharina (Adam).

Hank is survived by his dear sister, Barbara (John) Dahlinghaus; two children, Brian (Amanda) Maas and David (Kelly) Maas; four step-children, Julie Hopkins, Ann (Rob) Gingell, Rob (Tonya) Witman, and Tom Witman; grandchildren, Alex Maas, Connor Maas, Kaitlyn (Nic) Grant, Trent Maas, Jeff (Emily) Hopkins, Alyssa (Carter) Sotkiewicz, Olivia Witman, Dillon Witman, Madeline Gingell, Hannah Witman, and Matthew Witman; Sisters-In-Law, Barbara Maas and Diana Maas; along with numerous extended family members and friends.
