Chapter Celestial
William E. Drier ’55 entered Chapter Celestial on June 21. He followed Ohio State sports and cheered the Buckeyes on until the end.

He loved his antique wooden Chris Crafts and became a prized collector. He enjoyed the yacht club and the serenity of Lake Dora, and his beautiful home on boat house row. Bill will be remembered for his joie de vivre, sincere kindness, and humor. He is survived by his wife, Maryellen; children, David and Dinah; grandson, Devon; and two stepdaughters.
