John Wooten Moore ’46

Published in Apr. 10, 2002, issue

Jack died Oct. 28, 2001, of a heart attack at his home in Creve Coeur, Mo. He joined the class in June 1942, served in the Air Corps from 1943-46, flying B-29 bombers in the Pacific, and graduated in 1948 with honors in economics.

His career was in manufacturing, first in plastics in Linesville, Pa., then as founder of Swan Corp. in St. Louis, making bath and kitchen products. He was a fisherman, horticulturist, history buff, and arts patron. His farm was a center for wildflower prairie cultivation. He was a trustee of the St. Louis Zoo.

Surviving are his wife of 49 years, Terry, sons John and Wesley, daughter Harriette Warren, brother Thomas, and four grandchildren. We share in sorrow their loss and salute a loyal classmate.
