Warren Morrow, like many of us, came upon credit unions unintentionally: A Tucson, Ariz.-based credit union helped him and his father obtain a loan when he started college.
The loan paid for the car he would drive from Arizona to Iowa where he attended Grinnell College. What Warren didn't know at the time was that he would ultimately leave an indelible mark on the credit union movement.
On Feb. 15, 2012, Warren's family, friends, coworkers, the credit union movement, and the Latino community suffered an inexplicable tragedy when Warren passed away at the age of 34. Warren is survived by his wife, Christina Fernandez-Morrow, and eight-year-old daughter, Ariana.
