Psi Mourns Loss of Moe Cook
November 11th, 2011
Moulton "Moe" Cook passed away quietly at his home in Tuscaloosa, AL, on September 25, 2011, after a brief illness. He was born on June 1, 1944 in Forkland, AL, to the late John Cook, Sr. and the late Minnie Jenkins Cook. Moe graduated from Druid High School in Tuscaloosa in 1962 and attended college in Texas. He served his country with distinction in the U.S. Army, including a tour in Vietnam. For over 40 years Moe was a treasured employee, and initiated member, of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity at the University of Alabama. During his tenure with Delta Kappa Epsilon, Moe helped nearly a thousand boys on their road to becoming young men, and considered this his life's calling, second only to being a loving father and husband. In 1997, the U.S. Senate celebrated Moe's lifetime of service to his family, his country, and Delta Kappa Epsilon, by flying an American flag atop the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. That flag remains on permanent display inside the Delta Kappa Epsilon house. One of Moe's favorite Bible verses comes from Ecclesiastes 1:8, "the eye is not satisfied merely with seeing." Moe saw deeply into life, but more importantly, he made sure those who knew and loved him did so as well, and they are better men and women as a result. Moe is survived by his wife, Mary Cook; two sons, Damion Moulton Cook and Kadarius Moulton Cook; two daughters, Karmisha Weaver and Karnisha Weaver; his mother-in-law, Thelma Weaver; two brothers-in-law, Henry Weaver and Willie Colvin; three sisters-in-law, Lois Weaver, Alice Moore, and Thelma Little; and a host of other extended family and friends.
