ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The credit union industry has lost one of its most respected volunteers. Eugene Ball, 88, passed away on Feb. 28. A military service was held on March 13 at Arlington National Cemetery. Ball, who spent 50 years in the military, joined the board of Pentagon FCU in 1975, serving until 2002.

In 2002, the National Association of Credit Union Chairmen established the Gene Ball Award to recognize outstanding leadership in credit union chairmen.
