Dang. I had sought Bill Liggett via internet without success.

I am sad to note his death. I would have liked to have touched base with him to discover what he had been up to.

Bye, Bill. It was very nice to have known you.

(l-r) Scott Druhot and Bill Liggett were always building something at the physics shop at B-W where his Dad volunteered. 

Bill was Berea High School's version of a rock star. With red hair down to his waist, he produced rock concerts and ran sound and lights at B-W for visiting bands like Jethro Tull and Blood Sweat & Tears.

We all loved hanging around with Bill. He was always doing something fun. He taught many of us how to repel down the cliffs and bridges at the Little Cedar Point Hill in the park - 180' straight down.

To keep runaway kids off the street, he worked to start the Berea Community Center where we all restored the building and even held a haunted house.

He was called an electronic genius at the age of 13 in a story in the local Berea News paper. I learned so much about electronics from him. Together we built a sound mixing board to use with bands and we updated electrical wiring in many old houses in Berea - skills I still use today.

He had the best parents - Betty & Red and a sister Pat. He married the sweetest woman, Mavis, a talented artist, and were married for 30 years.

He was the highlight of the high school years for many of us and we will never forget him.
