Thanks For The Memories, Brother RancDear Pi Kapp Brothers,

It is with great sadness that we must share the news of Mo’s passing on February 3, 2018. While on his annual venture to Key West, Florida with his dear companion Judy, he began to feel unwell, and during their return to York he passed away with peace and dignity. Mo will be remembered by us all as a good father, a loving and warm companion, a great friend, and most importantly -- a great man. Additionally, Mo served alongside Jeff Hathaway, who we honored in our last edition. Mo and Jeff are together again in our Chapter Eternal.

Mo’s obituary will appear in the Baltimore Sun and the York Record on Sunday, February 25, and our celebration of Mo’s life will include the following:
