A staple in the Alexandria community, Lige was the third generation to operate the family farm that dates back to 1858. After graduating from Alexandria High School, he served in the U.S. Navy during WWII.  As a dairy farmer, Lige didn’t have much time for hobbies, but made time to participate in the Alexandria Fun Days inaugural tractor pull in 1951 and continued his participation for 65 years straight (from 1951 - 2016).  After retiring from farming, he enjoyed his time spent with the Alexandria Coffee Club and Buckeyes Senior Group. He enjoyed bowling, reading westerns, any sports and most especially O.S.U. football. He was a member of the Alexandria Baptist Church, Licking County Farm Bureau, Producers Livestock Assoc., Center Star Masonic Lodge, Milk Marketing Assoc., charter member of the Licking County Agrology Club, and past director of the Alexandria Bank. Lige will be remembered for his orneriness and amazing work ethic.
