Al’s health had been declining. He succumbed Feb. 15, 2012, on Sea Island, Ga.
He prepared at Mercersburg Academy and majored in geological engineering at Princeton, where he was a member of the boxing team and Tower Club.
Upon graduating, he joined the family-owned coal business until 1964. After being named to the board of directors of Union National Bank of Clarksburg, W.Va., he joined the bank full time as a vice president and was named president in 1962. He led the bank to rapid growth and was appointed a director of the Baltimore branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. In the 1980s he led in the formation of Union Bancorp (now a part of JPMorgan Chase).
Al is survived by his wife of 68 years, Elizabeth Long Reppert; daughters Elizabeth Reppert Abruzzino and Anne Reppert Williams; three grandchildren; and two great-grandsons. Al’s classmates extend their deep sympathies to all of the above.
