In March of 1939, upon the death of President B.S. Pannkuk, William Boyken assumed the Presidency of the Titonka Savings Bank. He had served as Vice President from June of 1920 through March of 1939 and subsequently as President from March of 1939 until his death in December of 1958. During this time, he had seen the bank grow from $350,000.00 in assets to $3,429,000.00. The Board of Directors did cite William Boyken as being a tower of strength and safety for the bank, a person who had served unselfishly through all the years he had been associated with the bank, giving of his time for his work, his church and his community.
