Legg, 77, died on Aug. 4, 2015 in Vancouver, Wash.

“Ivan graduated from high school in Rio de Janeiro, where his father was a Methodist minister. He is fondly remembered by his students and peers as an intelligent and kind mentor. His love of science was infectious, and both of his children followed in his footsteps as a hydrogeologist and an ecologist. His passion for music was centered on the blues, and he was rewarded for this love when he met B.B. King in person. He also liked hiking, backpacking, camping, fishing, and playing fetch with his dog.”—family of Ivan Legg
