Richard W. Billings, 86, a local banking executive and former board chairman of Crozer-Keystone Health System, died Tuesday, Sept. 3, of cancer at his home in Springton Lake Village, Media.
Mr. Billings retired in 1989 as executive vice president and director of Fidelity Bank and Fidelcorp, both now part of Wells Fargo.
Earlier in his career, he served as president, chairman, and chief executive officer of Southeast National Bank, which merged with Fidelity in 1984.
While affiliated with Southeast, his office was on the Main Line. He later commuted to offices in Center City.
Mr. Billings was named to Crozer-Chester Medical Center's board of directors in 1980 and served as chairman during the hospital's merger with Delaware County Memorial Hospital, a partnership that helped create Crozer-Keystone Health System in 1989.
