Richard "Dick" Lee Balogh

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.

Dick was also an avid coin collector, as you can ask all of his grandchildren.

    His passion for coin collecting was second to none and knew what it meant to provide quality service in industry.

    Peace be with you, Dick.

    Grandpa Dick, as he was known to us and our children, came into our lives via the Reider family. You never would of known Dicks age if it wasn't listed here. He was young at heart and as inquisitive as a child. He would examine something, or a conversation and then ask "why?" or "how?". He was passionate about many things but seemed to enjoy his coin collecting and time with family most of all. He will be missed deeply. Our prayers and condolences to Grandma Betty, family and friends.

  5. Uncle "Bud" as he was affectionately known to us will be greatly missed. He was an influential part of our lives growing up and later as adults. He has been a surrogate father to us the past 32 years. He and Aunt Betty have always been an integral part of the important celebrations and gatherings of our clan. Throughout the years they were part of family birthdays, graduations, baptisms, and marriages. Between the three of us nieces, he was regarded like a grandpa to our seven children and a great-grandpa to our twelve grandchildren. Christmases are among our fondest memories. We always had a "nose-off" contest to see which of the group could come nearest in size to him. A few got close, but no one exceeded this infamous Balogh feature. We also had a white elephant exchange and the tackier the gift, the better. He was keenly competitive and creatively managed to outdo our best efforts. Every. Time. His razor sharp, dry wit kept us on our toes and will be sorely missed. On a more serious note, our uncle was by our side in the trying times of life. Through illness or surgery or loss he was present to lend his kind and supportive presence. He lives on in our hearts and sweetest memories as a man of integrity, intelligence, wit, and love. We are forever thankful for the happiness and love he found with Aunt Betty. We love you always, your "fave" nieces, Pam, Mindy, and Jenny.
