Alan Stewart McCall, 81, passed away peacefully on May 16, 2021, at his home in Falls Church, Virginia. Born April 8, 1940, in Cleveland, he was the youngest son of Alexander Stewart McCall and Mary Watson McCall.
Alan attended Wittenberg University on a basketball scholarship. After earning his PhD in Economics from the University of Kentucky, he joined the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in Washington D.C. where he served as a Senior Financial Economist and Chief, Bank Regulation and Federal Legislation Section. Alan published numerous articles in finance and banking journals, testified before Congress and taught at the George Washington University and the University of Kentucky.
An avid car and sports enthusiast, Alan developed a lifelong love of the water and the limestone cliffs of Barrow Bay, Canada, during the many summers he spent at his family cottage there. In his retirement years, he found particular joy in doting on his twin grandchildren, Graham and Julia.
