George Lichter, textile, war hero, reconteur We lost a good friend last week. Death is always something we must deal with, but losing George Lichter was different for me. Seldom in life do we encounter such a powerful and unique personality. George was a textile maven, a war hero, and a raconteur, especially entertaining over a bottle of wine.

He would laugh telling me about washing dishes at the retreat as if it was a spiritual experience. fabric, New York, Fifth Avenue, art exhibit I met George Lichter in the 70's on a fabric buying trip in
