AMES, Iowa—Brother Wayne R.
Moore’s passed to the Chapter Eternal on Sunday, January 29. He was
A 1939 initiate of Alpha Omicron (Iowa State), Moore led a
distinguished fraternity career, serving Pi Kappa Phi both nationally and
Moore served as national chaplain from 1948 to 1950 and national
historian from 1950 – 1952. Later, he would also serve as a member of the
Pi Kappa Phi Foundation Board of Trustees from 1993 to 2000.
In recognition of his commitment to Pi Kappa Phi, Moore was
recognized by the 33rd Supreme Chapter in 1970 with a Merit Citation
– Pi Kappa Phi’s penultimate award for volunteer service. As the years
went by, Moore’s interest in and commitment to his fraternity never waned.
As a member of the Alpha Omicron Building Corporation, serving as secretary and
treasurer of the board, he helped lead the campaign to build the chapter house
on Welch Avenue. More than 400 students have been initiated into Alpha Omicron
since the house was built.
Later, Moore would again be recognized by his
fraternity. In 1994, the National Council selected him as the
fraternity’s “Mr. Pi Kappa Phi”, bestowing upon him the organization’s
highest accolade. In the Resolution of Appreciation presented to
him at the convention in Atlanta, Ga., that year, Moore was acknowledged for
having “worked tirelessly to continue the tradition of excellence at his
chapter, Alpha Omicron, for the last 55 years, serving as a peer and role model
for all to emulate.”
A photo of Moore and a copy of his Mr. Pi Kappa Phi
Resolution proudly hangs in the Kelley A. Bergstrom Leadership Center of Pi
Kappa Phi – the administrate home of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. Though Moore’s
absence leaves us with sorrow, his spirit remains evergreen among us.
