PETER D. LIANE, Fairborn Baker High School, Class of 1973

Dr. Peter D. Liane, age 57, of Jacksonville, Florida, passed away Sunday, December 30, 2012, in North Carolina. He was born August 2, 1955, in Dayton, Ohio, to Dale and Audrey Liane. His father Dale (Whitey) Liane precedes him in death.

After graduating from Optometry school at THE Ohio State University, he moved to Jacksonville to set up practice in 1979. Dr. Liane practiced at Liane Downtown Eye Associates and owned a consulting firm, The Eye Consultants. He served as a local and state president of the Florida Optometric Association. Dr. Liane was awarded Optometrist of the Year, Optometrist of the Decade, and was the youngest member ever elected to the State Board. Dr. Liane served as a local president of the Jacksonville Jaycees, winning many awards and taking the chapter to number one in the nation.

His in-laws Paul (Karen) Fisher and sister-in-law Rebecca (Tony) Zebouni, and many nieces and nephews also survive him. He will be greatly missed by many family and friends. THE Ohio State football team has a great cheering section in heaven now.

A memorial service was held Thursday, January 10, 2013, at Ortega United Methodist Church in Jacksonville, Florida. Interment followed in the church columbarium. The family had requested that friends wear scarlet and gray or Ohio State Buckeye attire to the service in honor of Peter, one of THE Ohio State’s biggest fans

Pete and I grew up together on Wayne Dr. He was one of my best friends through high school. He was killed in an automobile accident over Christmas holidays in North Carolina (December, 2012) where he was visiting family. Pete was an ultra-successful optometrist in Jacksonville, Florida.

Unfortunately, I lost touch with Pete over the years. Rest in peace, my friend.

Pete was a really good person.  Funny as heck and the way I understand was a good dentist

Vern and I remember many fun party experiences with Pete in the post high school particularly hilarious experience when he got up and sang "Brick House" with a bar band!   We were devastated to hear of his passing.  We pray for healing and sweet memories for his family.
