INDIANAPOLIS – Attendees at the Indiana Credit Union League’s recent annual meeting and convention paused for moments of silence and reflection on Gov. Frank O’Bannon, who passed away Sept. 13 after suffering a massive stroke five days earlier. “We were very saddened by the death of Gov. Frank O’Bannon,” said John McKenzie, ICUL President. “He was always a friend to Indiana credit unions and he will be missed by all Hoosiers. Our condolences go to Mrs. O’Bannon, to the rest of his family and to his staff.” Doctors said O’Bannon, 73, suffered a cerebral hemorrhage, a type of stroke caused by bleeding in the brain. Surgeons had removed blood from both sides of O’Bannon’s brain during surgery on Sept. 8 but his condition had deteriorated days later, said Northwestern Spokeswoman Kelly Sullivan. O’Bannon was in Chicago attending a medical convention. McKenzie said “the more than two million members of Indiana’s credit unions will continue to benefit from the support he gave the credit union community during his distinguished legislative career.” A donation has been made on behalf of Indiana’s credit unions to the O’Bannon Foundation. Lt. Gov. Joe Kernan has assumed O’Bannon’s duties as acting governor.
