Harry Frank Walbrecher

Harry Frank Walbrecher passed away Thursday, September 12, 2019, at his home in the Clear Lake City area. Harry was born on May 12, 1928 in Newark, New Jersey.

He is survived by Marcie, his wife of 48 years; son, Brian; daughters, Debbie (husband Stan) and Susanne (husband Kevin); sister, Joan; grandchildren, Patrick, Kyle, Jordan, Jillian, and Christian. Harry graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in Industrial Design and was a member of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. After graduation, he served as a 1st Lieutenant in the United States Air Force and is a Korean War Veteran. Harry joined General Electric in Ithaca and Syracuse, New York, working in DOD Human Factors Management. In 1964, he transferred with General Electric to Houston, Texas to work in NASA Programs Management and Life Sciences Projects which included manned systems testing and training, math modeling of human physiological systems, ground operations support, as well as medical missions manager for the NASA Skylab program. Additional support services included the formulation of life sciences payload processing for the Space Shuttle. He later worked in management with aerospace-related Life Sciences companies in the Houston area.
Harry was a dedicated fisherman who relished time on his boat catching speckled trout and red fish. He enjoyed attending his children’s football, baseball, dance and cheerleading events. He served as a Deacon at Bay Area Presbyterian Church for many years. A memorial service will be held on October 12, 2019 at 10:00am, at Bay Area Presbyterian Church, 670 E Medical Center Blvd, Webster, TX 77598.

  1. Harry and Marcie Walbrecher possess outstanding leadership capabilities. I am very honored to have been their friend for a long time, having met their family and them at Bay Area Presbyterian Church some years ago. Their adult children have raised their sons and daughters lovingly, placing God in the heart of their lives. Harry had such a good sense of humor, even when his physical body began to betray his voracious mental and emotional abilities. He fought his battles showing great presence-of-mind, being assured that Marcie and his progeny would always be there to support and honor him as a stalwart Deacon of the Presbyterian Church. I will always remember Harry fondly and lovingly.
