Oklahoma City's WEOKIE Credit Union reported that their longtime director, Frank Cory, died Saturday, June 11, from a fatal heart attack while sleeping. He was 77. His service will be held at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 15, at Oakcrest Church of Christ, 1111 SW 89th Street, Oklahoma City.

Frank Cory began his service on the WEOKIE board of directors in 1977, after retiring from 35 years of service at AT&T. During his service on the WEOKIE board, he served as chairman and secretary/treasurer.

Cory also served on many other boards and committees, including Oklahoma Credit Union Political Action Committee (OCUPAC) as a trustee. He was named Political Activist of the Year in 1999 and awarded the Distinguished Service Award as Volunteer of the Year 2001-2002. He earned the prestigious Troy Higgins Political Activist of the Year Award in 2009 from the Oklahoma Credit Union League. Cory also served as a sergeant-at-arms in the Oklahoma House of Representatives.

In addition, Cory was also a retired lieutenant colonel, US Army Reserve, a graduate of the Command and General Staff College, the Army Aviation Fixed-Wing and Rotary-Wing School and also a graduate of Officer Candidate School. He received his Bachelor of Science from Oklahoma State University in Trades and Industrial Education.

"Frank consistently demonstrated throughout his entire life a real desire to serve others," said Brent Taylor, president and CEO of WEOKIE. "He volunteered decades of service to the credit union as part of his greater effort to help people. We will miss his support, guidance, and friendship."

Frank is survived by his wife, Beverly Cory, along with their two children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
