Former regulator Gene Metz killed in accident
BEAVERTON, Ore. (3/12/12)--Gene Metz, a former credit union supervisory examiner primarily in the Pacific Northwest, died Wednesday as a result of an all-terrain vehicle accident.

Metz was 76 years old.

His work in the 1960s and 1970s was a factor in the creation of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), and the support he showed to credit unions throughout his career proved that it is possible to regulate for the best interests of the credit union mission, said the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) (Anthem March 9).

"Gene was a good friend to many in the credit union community," NWCUA CEO John Annaloro said. "His stewardship helped build the strong credit union system we have today. Even in retirement, he was considered a contemporary and colleague."
