Disgraced former United Way CEO dies at 84

By The Associated Press

McLEAN, Va. (AP) ' The man who led the United Way of America for decades before leaving in disgrace and serving a six-year sentence for fraud charges has died after a long battle with cancer. William Aramony was 84.

Aramony was the group's CEO from 1970 to 1992. He resigned after using the organization's money to fund a lavish lifestyle, including gifts for a girlfriend who was 17 when they first met.

Aramony's son, Robert Aramony, said his father died Friday in Alexandria at the son's home.

Robert Aramony said his father, a son of Lebanese immigrants, dedicated his time after his 2001 release from prison to peace-building efforts in the Middle East.

During his time at United Way, Aramony built a tangled web of disparate organizations into a philanthropic powerhouse.
