He was bald. His voice boomed like a great kettle drum. He brought history to life. Such is the legacy of the much beloved Mr. Easley. This was the man that made neolithic and paleolithic terms to be used in everyday conversation. Alas, one of the truly gifted teachers with a passion for their trade has passed into that good night. But as Frost put it, I like to think he did indeed "rage against the dying of the light!" Farewell Mr. Easley as you become part of the history you so loved.
