He will be remembered for his passion for art and politics, his irreverent humor, his commitment to social and environmental justice, his love of hiking and travel, his generosity, and his love for his friends and family.
He is survived by Pamela Goodman Lichty, his wife of 50 years, his daughter Simone, his son Will, and their families.
Donations in his memory can be made to the Lichty Ecological Research Center c/o The Nature Conservancy in New Mexico, 1613 Paseo de Peralta, #200, Santa Fe, NM 87501.
Per his wishes, there will be no memorial service; his family will scatter his ashes in a beautiful natural setting that he loved.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
