Frederick (Fred) Charles Lickteig passed away on June 21, 2021 in his home. Fred was born October 22, 1941 to Isadore (Ike) and Rosabelle (Rose) Lickteig in Austin, Minnesota. He attended Pacelli Catholic High School, University of Dallas (C'63), University of Arkansas (C'64), and University College Dublin (C'67). He moved to Baltimore in 1967 before settling in Annapolis in 1973. Prior to retirement, Fred served as a budget analyst for Anne Arundel County. Fred's greatest passion was building connections with people. He loved to find out where people were from, and somehow always seemed to have a way to relate to them. He used his knowledge of genealogy to build out the Lickteig family tree and find new cousins. In 1965, Fred was a member of the Peace Corps in Kenya, which sparked a love of travel, adventure, and language. He was a passionate supporter of the Annapolis arts community, especially the Naval Academy theater program and bands. When not traveling to visit family and friends, you could often find Fred walking Annapolis or enjoying a beer at an Irish pub. Fred was preceded in death by his father, mother, and wife Brigid. Survivors include his daughter Susan Mann, son-in-law James, granddaughters Cassie and Rachel, brother Jim Lickteig, and sister Mary Catherine Ball. Friends are invited to visitation from 2 until 4 pm and 6 until 8 pm on Wednesday, July 7 at the John M. Taylor Funeral Home, 147 Duke of Gloucester St, Annapolis, MD 21401. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 am on Thursday, July 8 at St. Mary's Church, 109 Duke of Gloucester St, Annapolis, MD 21401.
