Zane Wiggins

Zane Kenneth Lewis Wiggins was initiated into the Gamma Xi Chapter of Phi Kappa Tau in the Fall of 1986.  His Pledge Brothers are Chris Graves, Brent Starnes, Jeff Mader, Stephan Altom, Joe Alexander, Sean Boyd, Gerrick Johnson, and Jack Turley. 

Zane made a splash in the lives of his Fraternity Brothers upon pledging.  People loved to be around him! He was cool and charismatic and full of life.  He was creative and had a mischievous side.  For instance, he wasn’t happy with an RA’s attitude so he penny locked him in his room during finals and nobody happened to be around to let the guy out. 

Zane made such a lasting impression that two of his Pledge Brothers named their sons after him.  His too early passing reminded all of us to keep strong our fraternal ties. Zane was tragically killed at the age of 42 in an auto-pedestrian accident in Edmond, Oklahoma on November 5th, 2008.
