Peter Moffitt, Psi Delta '84

Psi Delta alumni are very sad to report that Brother Peter Kenneth Moffitt, '84, passed away peacefully at home on August 5, 2013, after a valiant fight with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Pete graduated from Wake Forest University where he was a member of DKE and an avid supporter of the Deacons. After Pete's ALS diagnosis in February of 2011, he participated in several clinical trials to help find a cure for ALS. He acknowledged that it might not help him with his fight - but he was committed to playing a role to find a cure. Raising awareness and funding for ALS was very important to him. The Pete Moffitt Courage Award was recently established at Wake Forest by his many friends and family members to recognize annually a student-athlete, coach or alumnus who demonstrates courage in his or her endeavors. Pete, his wife Susan, and daughters Hastings and Mary Layton presented the first award September 22, 2012 and were recognized at half-time on the field of the Wake Forest-Army football game later that memorable afternoon. He took great pride in his family. Pete is survived by his parents, his wife, and his two daughters. His many Deke Brothers mourn the loss of their dear friend Pete.
