On Thursday, September 16, 2021 Arthur (Pete) Wilhelm Lich Jr. of Lakehills, Texas was called home to be with the Lord. He was born to Arthur Wilhelm Lich Sr and Nora (Wesch) Lich on August 15, 1935, in San Antonio, TX; Pete was 1 of 7 children. Pete grew up in San Antonio, Texas upon graduating High School, he enlisted in the United States Navy in March 1953, he served the Navy and was honorably discharged in 1964. He then began his career working for the Department of Army as a civil servant, which he retired from in 1990 from the base located in Corpus Christi, TX. He was a fine carpenter and was always willing to help a neighbor in need. Pete enjoyed his time outdoors, watching wildlife, caring for his garden and serving up some of the best Texas Bar-B-que in this area. To be invited over for Bar-B-que was quite the honor for family and friends. Pete always told family and friends that he joined the Navy, so they could teach him how to swim, upon the Navy learning he could not swim, they dry docked him. Pete married the love of his life, Mary Ellen (Kelly) Lich in Corpus Christi, TX in 1962. Pete and Mary Ellen had 1 son, Mark Dennis Lich. They lived in Corpus Christi, Lake Mathis, Flour Bluff, Lakehills and New Port Richey Fl during their marriage. Pete was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Nora Lich, his wife Mary Ellen, his sisters, Ruby Tschirhart and Mary Lou Haby and stepson Hal Lenox. Pete is survived by his son, Mark, his sister Laina (Bill) Bernatchez of Uvalde, TX, Nephew Leslie (Gwenda) Tschirhart of Lakehills, Niece Peggy Zinsmeister and numerous nieces and nephews. The family would like to extend a heartfelt Thank you to the staff of River Center Hospice care team, for the love and care you bestowed on our loved one during this time. There will be a celebration of life at a later date.
