Here's a familiar face to Bluffton High School students who took driver's ed in high school, and chemistry in high school during the 1950s and 1960s. It's Wilford Geiger, also a partner in the Geiger and Diller men's store once-upon-a-time on Main Street.
He also lead a pretty mean cheer during homecoming pep sessions.
Paul Diller took this photo of Wilford "don't put the zinc in the sink" Geiger in the early 1950s.
