With saddened hearts, we announce that our father, grandfather and great grandfather, Emil Lich, of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 21, 2020, at Meadow Lake Hospital at the age of 89 years. He was born November 14, 1930 in Burstall, SK, the first of three sons. He married Agnes Tetzlaff on July 10, 1956 and they resided in Webb, Gull Lake, Meadow Lake, Westaskiwin, North Battleford, finally returning to Meadow Lake in 1987. They were both very actively involved in their community and shared a love of sports, especially baseball and golf. Dad loved socializing and visiting with people, playing card games, entertaining all with his stories and lively sense of humour. Left to cherish his memory are his three daughters: Debbie (Mark) McDonald and their family: Chad McDonald and his children, Chloe, Chaeztyn, and Kazia; Melyssa (Kerry) Million and their children, McKinnley and Madeline; Lexie (Doug) Lessard and their family: Dana Fleming; Jim (Tara) Lessard and their children, Vance and Logan; and Valerie Lich. He is survived by his brother-in-law, Robert (Gerry) Tetzlaff, nieces and nephews.
