November 13, 1936 – June 17, 2020
Richard Lee Balogh (Dick), of Friendswood, Texas was born on November 13, 1936, in Huntington, West Virginia to parents Stephen and Martha Balogh, passed away to be with his Heavenly Father, on June 17, 2020.
Dick moved his family to Houston, Texas and worked for the Flight Operations Division at NASA for Philco-Ford in the Mission Control Center before joining Lockheed Martin Aerospace in Clear Lake, Texas, in 1968 and retired in 1995, but continued to work as consultant for several years. He was instrumental in writing proposals to obtain government contracts. He also helped develop a unique skill of coaching for Team Development between different departments. Dick was a proud American and Christian. Dick enjoyed working in the yard and even planted his own oak trees from acorns collected from different states across the country, that are currently thriving in his yard today. Dick was also an avid coin collector, as you can ask all of his grandchildren.
