This is a followup to the Bath School Massacre post earlier this week..

May 18 marks the 90th annual observance of the school massacre in Bath, Michigan.

Donald Huffman and Willis Cressman were two of the last survivors.

Donald Huffman was 9 years old when the explosives went off, losing an eye and a section of cheekbone, acquired compound fractures and spent the rest of his life with numerous scars.

Willis Cressman was 15 back then and remembers the killer, Andrew Kehoe, as a church-going man and found it unfathomable a church member would be capable of such hideous acts of murder.

The article you are about to read was written in 2009, 82 years after the events on May 18, 1927 and features quotes from Huffman and Cressman as well as pictures of them in their 90’s.

Huffman passed away in 2011 at the age of 93.

Cressman passed away in 2009, a few months after this article was published, at the age of 97.

I post this not for sensationalism but for the hope we never have anything like this happen in our area, let alone our state, ever again…..and to take my hat off for all who survived and were able to live prosperous lives.
