Donald Bock

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our Board member and friend Donald Bock on September 14, 2020. He passed peacefully at his home, surrounded by family.

 

Donald Bock joined the New Orleans Fire Department (NOFD) in 1960 and promptly became a New Orleans Firemen's Federal Credit Union (NOFFCU) member. He was elected to the NOFFCU Board of Directors in 1977, and then Board Chair in 1981. Among his many accomplishments, Bock served as a Board member for Louisiana Corporate Credit Union and the Louisiana Credit Union League. Over his years of service, his leadership helped mold NOFFCU into the member-focused Community Development Financial Institution it is today. Upon his retirement from NOFD, Bock was chosen to serve as the Jefferson Parish Fire Department's Superintendent, where he remained until full retirement. Bock served as a NOFFCU Board and Advisory Council member until his passing.

 

Throughout his time on the Board, Donald Bock embodied the credit union cooperative philosophy of "people helping people." He helped NOFFCU grow from a $1.5 Million credit union into the $200 Million full-service institution it is today, serving over 26,000 members across seven geographic markets. In 2010, Bock was inducted into the Louisiana Credit Union Hall of Fame. This year, the National Association of Federally Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU) named Bock their 2020 Volunteer of the Year.

 

Donald Bock is a true hero, living his life serving others. While we have lost a dear friend and mentor, Donald Bock's legacy will live on with NOFFCU.
