About York State Bank

In 1943, Dean Sack obtained a charter for a new bank and opened its doors on July 13 with only $65,000 in total deposits. Just after opening York State Bank, Sack chartered the Henderson State Bank in October 1944 and another bank in Benedict the same year. He later acquired banks in Gresham, Geneva, Grafton and Loup City. Sack served as president of the York State Bank and later as Chairman of the Board until his death in 1997. In 1944, Sack helped create the York Industrial Board on which he served for 52 years, until 1996. The board was credited with attracting one of York’s first major industries, York Cold Storage Co., in 1944. Later the board, which would become the York County Economic Development Inc., helped bring other industries to the area, including the York Packing Co., Gerber Foods, Mid-American Coop Cheese Co., Pioneer Hi-Bred International and High Plains Corp. Ethanol Plant.

In addition to his contributions to York County industry, Sack also was a major player in bringing irrigation to farms in the county. In the 1950s, his company, Meridian Construction, was responsible for surveying land and drilling and financing irrigation wells throughout the area.

Sack was also a generous financial contributor to the community. He donated funds for an airport expansion project, for numerous economic development efforts, and to education. In 1995, he donated the Dean Sack Hall of Science to York College. Sack took great pride in the quality of the farmland and farmers in the county. “York County has, without a doubt, the best farmers in the state,” Sack said in an interview in 1993. “The farmers just seem to do a better job in York County than anywhere else.”

He passed away on August 17, 1997.York State Bank & Trust Company was sold to the Lauritzen Corporation in 1995. York State Bank continues to support the education, industrial and agricultural aspects of York County.
