All of us at Rise extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Larry Pietrzak who died August 20. Larry had been a valued member of Rise’s Board of Directors since 1991, and through those many years, gave us countless hours of his vast financial knowledge and experience, as well as his heartfelt compassion.
Larry truly enjoyed his 50-year banking career, and since 1995, was the senior vice president of Northeast Bank at its Columbia Heights location. He was well-known throughout the area, and was loved and respected for his integrity, humor, and generosity. Larry and his wife of 48 years, Cheryl, were the proud parents of sons Brian and Andy, and loving grandparents of Matthew, Joseph, Ben, Sophie, and Ella.
Thank you, Larry, for all you have done for Rise and the people we serve. Your gifts of time and talent will be felt for many years to come.
