William P. “Bill” Clohessy

Bill Clohessy, 65, of Hillsboro, NH, died on April 12th, while receiving hospice care at the home of his sister, Peggy Silva of Amherst. He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Ryan and Bridget Guthrie of New Jersey, two grandchildren, and three sisters, Peggy Silva, Colleen Clohessy, and Kathleen Czarnecki, and several nieces and nephews.

Bill’s career spanned from the Air Force to banking to ditch-digging to property management and everything in between. He spent over thirty years in California before moving to his sister’s house in Amherst. He fell in love with the Live Free or Die spirit of NH and settled in Hillsborough. He served on that town’s Planning Board and was very active in his small community. The Board of Commissioners of the Emerald Lake Village District is donating a bench with Bill’s name on an engraved plaque in Eastman Park in gratitude for his service. Bill and his dog Clancy walked miles every day through the woods and beaches of Hillsborough. At the time of his death, Bill and a business partner in Dallas were about to launch a new tech company.

Bill was deeply appreciative of the care he received from the VNA Hospice Service and the Veteran’s Administration. Smith & Heald Funeral Home is in charge of cremation arrangements. Bill requested no formal services. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Hospice Service of the VNA of Manchester and Southern New Hampshire at 1070 Holt Ave., Suite 1400 | Manchester, NH 03109, or to Caring
