Red River Employees FCU Alvin Jackson

Alvin Jackson, esteemed board member of Red River Employees Federal Credit Union and resident of Wake Village, passed away on Dec. 5, at the age of 78.  Jackson had been a member of the credit union for 32 years, served on the board for 13 years, and took a key role in the annual meeting.

Prior to serving on the Red River board, Jackson was an employee of and retired from District 19 Employees Credit Union. He was also a former employee of Texar Federal Credit Union. He was a native of Waldo, Arkansas, and is survived by his wife Linda Clayton Jackson, daughter Nancy Daniels, and son-in-law James Daniels. He is also survived by one son-in-law and wife, Michael and Phyllis Cheatham. 

Fred Milton, president of the board at RRCU said, “Mr. Alvin D. Jackson was an exemplary RRCU Board member. He usually served as our Annual Meeting committee chairman, producing great meetings each successive year. Alvin also served in other capacities including board member representative to the supervisory committee and secretary/treasurer to the board.

"Alvin always had a smile on his face, and enjoyed the conversations with anyone, especially CU members. He had the art of listening to each word of the conversation, making each person feel like they were the most important person at that time. He exhibited the highest levels of integrity and devotion to our CU, and gained the highest respect and trust, not only from our board of directors but from the senior level management and staff of our CU. Alvin had an immense degree of humility, always centering his energies on his faith in the Lord, his family, his community, and 'his credit union' family.

"Alvin’s efforts were always driven to supporting the membership, and his actions and decisions from a board perspective always reflected that approach. We will certainly miss his influence on our board."
