At 101 Harry Hahn retires from CUs
ERIE, Pa. (7/12/11)--After 60 years associated with credit unions, Harry Hahn, 101 has finally decided to retire, according to Erie Times-News (July 10). Hahn, who will turn 102 on Aug. 9, formally retired last month as a nonvoting director emeritus of the Erie (Pa.) FCU to spend more time with his bride, Theresa, age 92, whom he married late last year. Hahn--described by Erie FCU CEO Mary Beth Wilcher as having a "little hearing problem" but as "sharp as a tack"--also worked with Hammermill Employees FCU, where he served as board director, treasurer and supervisory committee member, before its merger with Erie FCU. He also was active in the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) and served on its board of directors for 15 years. He received its Lifetime Achievement Award and was its Volunteer of the Year. Jim McCormack, president/CEO of PCUA, described Hahn to the newspaper as humble, low-key and sincere. Hahn was a mentor to many, he said. "I owe so much to him, and a lot of people in Erie and the state would say the same thing," he said. Hahn credited his long career and his long life to moderation. "Do things moderately and be a volunteer. It is so self-satisfying to help out other people." He wanted to get across the message of helping others, rather than dwelling on his accomplishments. His greatest accomplishment, Hahn told the newspaper, "was to help people. Contact with people provided me with a fuller life."
