Obituary of Joseph H. Lickliter
Springwater - Joseph Harrison Lickliter
On Wednesday, November 27, 2019, Joe Lickliter, loving husband, father, brother, uncle and friend, passed away at his home at the age of 73. Joe was born on October 9, 1946 in Hamburg, NY to Robert Paul and Rosalie (Barrickman) Lickliter. Joe attended the University of Tennessee before serving in the Air Force during Vietnam. Joe settled in Nantucket after the war where he met his future bride; Virginia Tobin Shaw whom he married on February 8, 1975. From there, they traveled the country in an orange VW bus spending time in California, Washington, Alaska and finally settling on the hill in Springwater, NY where they raised their two children, Robin and Tom. Joe truly lived life to the fullest. He was a good man with a big heart. He was a lover of sports, a healthy debate, a solid book, a great time and more than anything his family and friends.
He is survived by his wife, Ginny; daughter, Robin (Vern Crossett); son, Tom (Rachel Scura); brothers, Jay and Quentin and sister Jenifer (Pat) Collins; as well as a number of brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and friends; and his grand-dogs, Big Perm and Margie.
