Chapter Eternal

Chapter Eternal is the place where we remember our Pi Mu brothers who have passed on. If you would like to notify us of the death of one of our fraternity brothers please email the webmaster.


Frater Tim Moran. RIP

On February 14, 2019, after a lengthy illness, Frater Timothy J. Moran passed away peacefully.  Tim was an integral part of our fraternity from the very beginning.  He is #19 on our Pi-Mu scroll, was a Past Prytanis and was an active alumni and board member right up to his death.

Sam Hoyt {a NYS Assembly Member} eloquently described Tim as a wonderful man with a huge heart and a great sense of humor. Saying he was one of the kindest, most caring and compassionate people he ever had the pleasure of knowing and knows that his commitment to social justice and equality for all will have a lasting impact in this community for generations to come.

We certainly believe that anyone who knew Tim would agree.

I have some bad news to share, friends. Rafa – Rafael Correra has passed on. He died in Chicago Tuesday night after falling from a building. He fought for an hour in intensive care before subcoming to his injuries.

To those who knew him, he was a bright star who lit up a room with his presence…. He always brought humor, positivity, and fun with him everywhere he went. With his infectious smile he could always brighten up any bad day.

Rafa was one of a kind. I’ve come across A LOT of people in my life, but not one so kind, giving, and fun. Rafa is # 228 on our scroll.

He will surely be missed- Chris C

Frater Rich Holman. RIP

Rich Holman left us and entered Chapter Eternal. In October 1996, my best fraternity pal, Rich Holman (Pledge name: Bunyon — as in Paul Bunyon, because he always wore flannel), was killed in an automobile accident in Glynco, Georgia. Rich was seven weeks away from completing the Federal Parks Police Academy and would have graduated on his birthday. He was engaged to a girl that he dated all through college. When I think of Teke at Buffalo State, I think of Rich.- Chris M.
