William T. Moorefield, a former physics professor at Towson University, died Oct. 21 of congestive heart failure at his home in Towson. He was 85. Mr. Moorefield, who grew up in Hampden, was fascinated by science from an early age. He met his wife, the former Helen Klinke, at a summer science course at Druid Hill Park when they were teenagers. "He was a big tease," she said. "He was supposed to show us how to use the insect nets to catch butterflies, but instead he would catch bees and show them to the girls and make them scream."
