Bill Moffitt, 1925-2008

Dr. William “Bill” Moffitt, long time Director of the Cougar Marching Band at the University of Houston and band composer, passed away on March 5, 2008. I had the opportunity to be at the U of H game where they honored him by naming the band hall (I think) after him. He conducted the band during halftime for the playing of of his famous “The Horse” as well as a few others, if I remember correctly. I’m sad I never got to meet him. U of H Bands and their Kappa Kappa Psi chapter has created a memorial page here. RIP…
