Peter Wolfgang Horst Neumann, 84 of Union Bridge MD., was presently residing at Sunrise of
Frederick. He left this world on July 9, 2020 . He was born on September 5, 1935 in what is
today southwestern Poland, but spent much of childhood in Passau, Germany.
He first came to America in the late 1950s to study agriculture, and then served in US Army in
Germany where he met his wife, Ursula. They returned together to settle permanently in the
U.S. in the early 1960s.
He first held various jobs as a butcher and furniture maker, but obtained employment as a

participating in, and organizing, Christmas clothing and food drives through his work at Lehigh.

Sending love and healing out to all of Mr. Neumann's family and friends. He was very kind and one of my favorite customers. !
Years ago, I worked in the tool dept. at Sears, and Peter would stop in regularly. He always shared stories of his family and his passion for travel. I seem to recall him talking about hiking? I know he was very active, and I remember selling him the Huffy Iron Man bike ( we sold bikes for a short time)...I bought one for myself and my husband after Peter told me how good the quality was and how much he liked it!! Ours are still sitting in the shed after all these years, but Peter put alot of miles on his...he had a passion for life ! It was really touching to learn of some of the other wonderful and caring ways he touched people's lives. God bless your family

Oh, our friend Peter. He was always a great encouragement to me during my time at Lehigh Cement Company and through my move to Arizona. He was always so kind to check in to make sure I had a phone card, or whatever else might be needed, as I pursued serving in Arizona and more education. Peter and Grace, praying you are greatly comforted in the passing of both your mom and dad. They were a wonderful couple who were great friends to me.

Thank you so much, Sherrie! Karl
