 PASSING OF ROBERT C. FORREY
 PRINCETON, N.J., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The officers and executive committee of the New Jersey Bankers Association today expressed their deep sorrow over the death of the trade association's recently retired president, Robert C. Forrey.

"For 30 years until his retirement in June, Bob was the New Jersey Bankers Association, leading the organization with the utmost dignity and earning the respect of bankers, business leaders, legislators and our elected officials in Washington. His loss creates a tremendous void, and we extend our deepest sympathies to his wife, Rosemary and family."
 Alfred H. Griffith, Mr. Forrey's successor as NJBA president, stated. "In the 15 years that I knew Bob and worked under his guidance, I came to know Bob as a leader who had the almost unique ability to draw out a consensus no matter how divided the group. That is the singular ingredient that makes an organization like the NJBA succeed, and Bob was the consummate master."
 Mr. Forrey joined the NJBA as its staff executive in 1962 following nine years with the Pennsylvania Bankers Association. He is a past president of the American Bankers Association's State Association Division, and served three terms on its executive committee. in addition, he served two terms on the National Board if BankPac, the national political action committee for banking.
 Mr. Forrey served six years as a trustee of the Medical Center at Princeton, and was a member of the Princeton Township Board of Municipal Assessors. He was a section chairman of the Princeton Area United Way, and District Chairman of the Boy Scouts of America. He was a member of the Springdale Golf Club, the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor, the Nassau Club and Skytop Club. He served in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers during World War II.
 Mr. Forrey earned a B.A. from Swarthmore College and an M.B.A. from Southern Illinois University, and graduated from the Stonier Graduate School of Banking at Rutgers University. He was a certified association executive of the American Society of Association Executives and a member of Beta Gamma Sigma, the national business administration honorary fraternity.
 Mr. Forrey is survived by his wide, Rosemary Chatham Forrey, two daughters, Carole Forrey Garvey of Chalfonte, Del., and Lynne Forrey Suber of Princeton, two sons, John C. Forrey of Glen Rock and David R., Forrey of Plainsboro, and six grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother, William C. Forrey of Camp Hill, Pa.
