Gerhard William Buech finished his long journey home on June 30, 2014. Born in Saarbrücken, Germany in 1923, he began his young adult life thrust into World War II
, when at the tender age of 17 he served in the Germany Navy as a U- Boot Commander. After the war he studied architecture and immigrated to the states, settling in New York. There he met the love of his life, Ingeborg, who, after 56 years of marriage, he leaves behind, in addition to his beloved daughters Christina Buech Albert, Claudia Buech Price (and husband Russell), granddaughter Cassidy Bickmore Albert, the apple of his eye. Gerhard moved to the United States in the early 1950s, working as an architect in New York, and became a US citizen, a source of great pride for him. His greatest loves were his family, music, reading, history, hunting, fishing, and the great outdoors. A deeply spiritual man, he sang for 25 years with the San Antonio Liederkranz and was deeply moved by singing praise to God our Father. His love of all things Texan was evident as he studied Texas history and became an expert, providing tours later in life for visitors from all over the world.
