John Frampton Maybank, a financial consultant who served as treasurer and investment advisor for several Lowcountry community foundations and organizations, died Thursday. He was 68.
Born July 27, 1945, in Charleston, he was the son of David Maybank and Marion Taber Maybank.
After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree from Tulane University, Maybank joined the Army Special Forces.
He later moved to Columbia, S.C., where he met his wife, Kay.
Maybank received a Master of Business degree from the University of Pennsylvania and became a certified public accountant before returning to Charleston to be closer to his ailing father.
He served on the boards of the Gibbes Museum of Art, Historic Charleston Foundation, Magnolia Cemetery and Porter-Gaud School, among other institutions.
As treasurer and president of the Coastal Carolina Community Foundation, Maybank helped grow the organization into the state’s largest community foundation.
He retired in 2012 and dedicated much of his time to improving the financial stability of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra.
Maybank was also a member of several local clubs and charitable organizations.
He is survived by his wife, Katherine; a daughter, Marion; a sister, Derrill; a brother, David and seven nephews.
The funeral service will be held Tuesday, Nov. 5, at 11 a.m. in Grace Episcopal Church. The interment will follow at Magnolia Cemetery.
Stuhr’s Downtown Chapel is handling arrangements.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Charleston Symphony Orchestra or the John F. Maybank Fund at the Coastal Community Foundation.
