A top executive at TD Bank died of head injuries Friday evening after falling out of a moving golf cart at a fund-raiser for a Delran high school.

Frank Papotto, 44, of Moorestown, fell out of the cart at Rancocas County Club Golf Course in Willingboro Township about 6:10 p.m. Friday, police said. He was airlifted to Cooper University Hospital, where he later died.

Papotto was a senior vice president at TD Bank, which did not respond to calls this morning. He was helping to raise money for Holy Cross High School's football team, said Rayanne Bennett, spokeswoman for the Catholic Diocese of Trenton.

Willingboro police are investigating the incident.

George Joo, office manager with the Burlington County Medical Examiner, confirmed that Papotto had died of head trauma and that the death was accidental. Joo said Papotto was a passenger in the cart.

Papotto's sister, Lisa Neely, said he grew up in Delran and family appreciates an outpouring of support from the community.

"He was my brother, and he was a fantastic guy," Neely said. "I'll never stop loving him."
