CEO Of NSWC FCU Killed In Car Crash
DAHLGREN, Va. (8/12/13)--Harry C. Ovitt Jr., who had been CEO of NSWC FCU in Dahlgren, Va., for 27 years, was killed Thursday morning in a car crash on his way to work, reported The Free Lance-Star and Fredericksburg.com (Aug. 9).  He was 63.
 
The accident occurred at about 6:15 a.m. on State Route 206, the credit union told the newspaper. Staff said he always arrived at work early.
 
His eastbound car went off the right side of the road and hit a power pole and tree. He died at Mary Washington Hospital.  No other vehicles were involved. Ovitt was alone and was wearing his seat belt.
 
The credit union called the tragedy "a tremendous loss." "While the staff is devastated by this, Harry's foresight and planning have allowed us to implement processes that will assure the continued seamless operation of the credit union," said a notice on the $298 million asset credit union's website.  All branches of the credit union will be closed today.
