Bank Iowa’s more than 270 employees are celebrating the life and achievements of bank co-founder Harry Barr, who died July 1 at the age of 84. “Harry was a man of adventure and action,” said Bank Iowa President and CEO Jim Plagge. “He quickly answered the call when there was work to do or a cause that needed assistance. … His influence is a huge part of our culture and the values we work every day to live out.” Barr, along with Robert Duncan and his father, Donald Duncan, founded Bank Iowa in 1976 with the purchase of their hometown bank in Clarinda, Citizens State Bank. The family-owned bank now has $1.5 billion in assets with 25 locations across Iowa.
