BIRKENSEHER, FRANK J. - Webster  
FRANK JOSEPH BIRKENSEHER, age 77, passed away peacefully at home on September 1, 2016, with his loving family (and precious dogs Max and Ollie) at his side. Frank was born to Franz Xavier and Theresa Marie Birkenseher in Jersey City, New Jersey on March 13, 1939. He graduated from Holy Trinity High School in 1958 and enlisted in the United States Air Force before marrying his high school sweetheart, Jeanne Marie Mullen, whom he first met when he was only twelve years old and began dating at the age of fifteen (when Jeanne apparently got over his dipping the ends of her pig-tails in ink). A veteran of the United States Air Force, Frank proudly served during the Vietnam conflict and throughout his life continued to show his love of country and his gratitude and support for the men and women who dedicated their lives to military service. During his nearly 21 years of service Frank was stationed at Andrews AFB in Maryland, Hahn AB in Germany, Barksdale AFB in Louisiana, and Holloman AFB in New Mexico. Following his military retirement in 1978, Frank moved to Houston (Clear Lake City), Texas where he worked for more than 32 years for ILC, Boeing Aerospace and United Space Alliance supporting the U.S. Space Shuttle program from prior to the first flight through the final flight. He retired for a few months in 2010 but returned to work as a contractor with M & B Engineering supporting the EMU program for NASA and remained employed there until he fell ill in August 2016. Frank was a loving husband and devoted father and grandfather. He believed in the importance of family and unconditional love. His family was the center of his life and they were always on his mind. Safety check telephone calls and text messages from "Weatherman Frank" were always appreciated. He kept his family entertained with his sense of humor and quick wit. He was charming and friendly and had a wonderful way of making everyone feel welcome. Family time was cherished by all so the Birkenseher home was often filled with laughter, chatter, the sounds of tiny feet and barking dogs. Frank loved attending his grandchildren's sporting events throughout the years and also greatly enjoyed traveling to visit family and long-time friends whenever possible. Though the perfect golf swing escaped him, Frank was an avid golfer and treasured his time on the golf course. He watched the sport on television, read golf magazines and books, marshalled at the Shell Houston Open whenever he could, and cherished the golf trips he took with his buddies. Frank is survived his loving wife of 56 years, Jeanne Birkenseher, the children they raised, Michael Birkenseher (Peggi), Patricia Martinez (Chris), Susan Barnes (James), Mary Fishman (George), Sheila Schindler and Alyssa Birkenseher (his beloved granddaughter); his sister Anne Tuzzeo of Ocala, Florida, sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Marilyn and Eugene Nagler of Denton, Texas; his loving grandchildren, Justin Boyd, Matthew Birkenseher (Sudie), Sarah DiMatteo, Megan Fishman, Sean Birkenseher, Niklas Birkenseher, Lauren Martinez, Ethan Barnes, Jordan Barnes, Sarah Martinez and precious great-grandchildren, Kristopher Fishman, Thomas and Rebekah DiMatteo, and Kinley and Kayden Birkenseher; as well as numerous loving family members and lifelong friends whom he considered family. Frank was loved by many and will be greatly missed, though we know heaven is rejoicing with his arrival. Our special thanks to family and friends who prayed for and visited Frank in his final days, and the many compassionate and loving caregivers in the ICU at Clear Lake Regional Hospital. Treasured memories will forever remain in the hearts of those of knew and loved Frank. Everyone fortunate enough to know him is welcome to join the family in celebrating his life at any or all of the events planned to honor him.

Spencer, Glenn - Houston  
Born at home on a farm in Redwater, TX, the youngest of 8 children, Glenn was proud of his roots. His family experienced hardship, tempered by the love and support of a large family, during the Great Depression. Glenn was 17 years old when he graduated from high school in 1944. He immediately enlisted in the Army Air Corp. Too young for active duty he spent a year at LSU in the ASTP program before being activated into the regular AAC serving 1945-1946. He also served one year in the US Merchant Marines. In 1948 Glenn accepted a job with Foster Wheeler Construction Company as labor cost accountant and office manager. In 1950 he was sent to Venezuela for 2 years. In 1953 he worked for Bechtel Corp. in Saudi Arabia for 2 years. Realizing he needed to earn a college degree, Glenn returned to the US and enrolled at the University of Houston in the spring of 1955. He worked 20 hours per week and carried a full load of classes, graduating with honors in 1958 with a degree in Civil Engineering. He was very active in ASCE for many years and worked hard with that group to halt the pumping of ground water in Harris County which had resulted in dramatic subsidence problems. In 1954 Glenn met LuNan Lakey and they were married in 1955. 2016 marked their 61st Anniversary. Their 3 daughters, Catherine, Carolyn, and Susanne brought him unbounded joy and happiness, involving himself in all their activities. He helped them in every way to work toward their life goals. After completing his degree Glenn worked with various companies, but the job he enjoyed most was his work at Johnson Space Center, 1965-1988. He worked in the facilities area with his Civil Engineering skills and in later years in the area of Environmental Engineering. The exciting years of space exploration filled him with a sense of awe and satisfaction. Glenn was a committed Christian and participated fully in the life of the church wherever he attended. He educated himself to appreciate opera, classical music, and art. The popular music of the '40s and '50s, Broadway shows, and a little Willie Nelson made him happy. He was a great dancer and could do a terrific jitterbug routine, which he taught all his daughters. He delighted in friends, new and old, babies, fine food and country cooking, East Texas and its piney woods, cutting firewood, his fireplace, chocolate pie, gardening, travel, U of H football and Phi Slama Jama, and good scotch. Glenn was predeceased by his parents Gaskell and Edna Spencer; his siblings Eva, Varadaman, Herman, Jeannette, Marvis, Mike, and Bill; and his daughter Susanne. He is survived by his wife LuNan, daughters Catherine (Dana) Whitney and Carolyn (Lionel) Ortiz, grandchildren William Davidson, Alice Munier, Sands Ortiz, Hannah McGrew, Grace and Grant Skaggs, son-in-law Raleigh Skaggs, niece Paula Thompson, and nephews Rex Spencer and James Clary. Memorial services for Glenn were held September 3, 2016 at St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church in Nassau Bay. If desired, memorial gifts may be made to the Susanne Spencer Skaggs Endowed Scholarship Fund in care of Marissa Alviar, Development Associate, University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing 1710 Red River, Austin, TX 78701.
