Ulo Lige, 65, financial consultant

September 29, 2006

Ulo Lige, a retired financial consultant and longtime Rodgers Forge resident, died of cancer Sept. 21 at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. He was 65.

Mr. Lige was born in Estonia and was an infant when his family fled during World War II - first to Sweden, then to Canada and the United States, finally settling in Baltimore's Northwood neighborhood in 1952.

Mr. Lige became a U.S. citizen in 1952 and was a 1960 graduate of Polytechnic Institute. He earned a bachelor's degree in business from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1965.

He worked for P.A. Limited, a Towson financial consulting firm, until establishing Ulo Lige and Associates in 1989, also in Towson. Mr. Lige's financial consulting firm closed this year because of his failing health.

The longtime Stanmore Road resident was an avid reader, and enjoyed watching sports - including attending his grandchildren's games. He enjoyed golfing and drinking wine in the company of friends, family members said.

He also enjoyed spending time at a second home in Bethany Beach, Del.

Services were Monday.

Surviving are his wife of 40 years and college sweetheart, the former Jacqueline Phillips; three sons, Erik K. Lige of Scottsdale, Ariz., Christian P. Lige of Kitty Hawk, N.C., and David P. Lige of Towson; and nine grandchildren.
