« on: November 13, 2020, 12:40:49 PM »
E.P. Hight passed away peacefully at his home in Chetek on November 3, 2020.  E.P. was born to Nell (Fox) and Allen Hight in Elmwood, WI on June 6, 1931.  He grew up in Elmwood and graduated from High School there in 1949.

E.P. attended River Falls University, graduating in 1953. 

E.P. also started the wrestling program in the Chetek District. E.P. had never seen a wrestling match before he became Chetek’s head coach. He took several Chetek wrestlers to State, including the current Chetek Weyerhaeuser head wrestling coach, Bob Olson.

E.P. was a great guy and a mentor to many in our area.  I was privileged to know him early in my coaching career and found him a very sincere and personable guy, with a strong desire to serve others. 
None are so hopelessly enslaved, as those who falsely believe they are free. The truth has been kept from the depth of their minds by masters who rule them with lies. -Johann Von Goethe

Some days it's hardly worth chewing through the restraints!
