Terry Lichtenberg

April 4, 1940 — February 26, 2024

Terry Keith Lichtenberg, 83, of Oshkosh, passed away on

February 26th, 2024 at Aurora Hospital in Oshkosh. He was born

in the city of Clintonville, WI on April 4, 1940, son of Herbert and

Valrie Lichtenberg. Terry attended high school in Clintonville, WI

and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of

Stevens Point. On July 17, 1965 he married the love of his life

Geraldine Ruth Lichtenberg in Oak Lawn, IL and together raised

two daughters. In 1973 the family moved to Oshkosh, WI. A

family could not have asked for a more devoted husband and


Terry spent his professional career working for the Social Security

Administration assisting families in need. He assisted with meals

on wheels and was a member of the Kiwanis Club for many

years. He also volunteered to be a big brother for another child in

need. In his retirement, he continued his vocation through various

endeavors including being a school crossing guard, taking care of

neighbors in need of assistance, assisting people at the senior

center in Oshkosh with filing of their annual taxes and working

with the census bureau. He was also an active member of Trinity

Lutheran Church for 50 years and had a devout love of Jesus

Christ and this was of great comfort to him at the end. Throughout

his life he enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing softball, golfing,

playing cards and bowling. He was also an avid sports fan and

especially enjoyed watching the Packers, Brewers and Badgers.

As time went on and he had to slow down (a little) he would often

enjoy playing games such as sheepshead, 3 up, cribbage,

scrabble, sequence and canasta with friends and family. He was

never one to sit idle and this continued up until almost his final


Terry is survived by his devoted wife of 59 years, Geraldine

Jacob (Kate) Brehm, Jared Golden and Kaitlyn Golden;
