“He was a great man who will be sorely missed, but the good he brought to this world will live on in us all. To carry on all that he did will be an honor and a high task – in his memory we will do it.”
– Noni Waite-Kucera, Mo’s daughter
Dr. Benjamin Moseley (Mo) Waite, PhD, died on February 3, 2017. He was a scientist, educator and conservationist. In 1950 Mo’s parents Dr. Alex and Hannah Waite chartered Eagle’s Nest Camp, originally founded in 1927, as a non-profit educational organization. Mo continued the legacy by serving on the ENF Board of Trustees for over 35 years. He also helped found Carolina Camps for Children with Diabetes, providing life changing opportunities for children to learn to manage their illness in a camp setting. Scientist, ceramicist, furniture maker, gardener, pickler, blueberry farmer, white water paddler, world traveler, bibliophile; Mo’s interests and talents ranged as wide as the circle of people who respected and loved him.
