Raymond Frederick Lichte was born 30 March 1896 in Big Spring, MO, the son of William Charles and Mary (Hünefeld) Lichte. He performed honorable active service in the United States Navy in World War I at the following stations: Naval Air Station, Great Lakes, IL; Dunwoody Naval Air Station, Minneapolis, Minnesota; Receiving Station Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and United States Navy Air Receiving Station in Pauillac, France. While stationed in France he received the rating of MUS 2/C.

Prior to World War I, Raymond Lichte taught school at Bland and Hermann, MO. He completed his higher education at Central Wesleyan Academy, Warrenton, MO, in 1917, and his D.D.S. at St Louis University School of Dentistry, St. Louis, MO, in 1923. On 15 May 1924, he married Rey Gladys Neese in St. Louis.

Dr. Lichte was initiated an Entered Apprentice Mason on April 11, 1925, Bland, MO, and raised to Master Mason, June 27, 1925. He received his 50 year pin from the Grand Lodge of Missouri, Belle Lodge No. 373, on June 27, 1975, at the Masonic Hall, Belle, MO.

Dr. Lichte was a practicing dentist for more than 50 years in Union, MO.

Dr. and Mrs. Raymond F. Lichte purchased the Halligan Mansion and land in 1936 for $3,600, planning to use the bricks and other material to build a house on the site. At that time, the mansion was known as the Park Hotel, but for almost 20 years previously was known as the Martin’s Hotel and Summer Home, a popular vacation destination owned by Herman Martin and his wife, Seraphine Anna Martin nee Wunderlich. As the story goes, when the Lichte plat was created, Wally Avenue was named for Wallis Warfield Simpson, soon to be the wife of Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor, and formerly King Edward VIII. The Lichte house presently stands at 207 Wally Avenue.
