OBITUARY
Boatright, name is on the moon
NASA worker and others etched their monikers on the flagstaff
By ERIC HANSON
Houston Chronicle

Gordon E. Boatright, who helped build components for the Gemini and Apollo space programs as a NASA employee and who served on two ships in the Pacific in World War II, has died from cancer in an Abilene hospital. He was 87.

Boatright helped fabricate items for astronauts, including the standard used to plant the American flag on the first lunar mission, family members said.

"His name is actually on the moon. He and a bunch of other guys chemically etched their names on the flagstaff that was taken up there and poked into the ground," his son, Rolan Boatright, said. He was born in San Angelo on April 13, 1921, to Ernest and Birtie Payne Boatright. Rolan Boatright said his father quit high school and joined the U.S. Navy. Boatright served on the USS Chicago, a heavy cruiser in several battles and campaigns during the early months of the war in the Pacific, his son said.

Boatright was then assigned to the destroyer USS Mullany, said his son-in-law, Sam Rapp. The Mullany was severely damaged on April 6, 1945, off the coast of Okinawa when a strafing Japanese aircraft crashed into the vessel. The impact caused horrible damage, killed 21 sailors and forced the remaining crew to abandon ship.

Boatright was rescued by another ship and eventually reboarded the Mullany, and the crew saved the destroyer from sinking, said Rapp.

After the war, Boatright married Nancy Berger, and the couple eventually settled in southeast Houston.

Boatright worked several jobs before joining NASA in the mid-1960s. He also worked on the handheld propulsion unit used by astronauts in early spacewalks, his son said. "And he helped build various components on the lunar rover," he said. He retired from NASA in 1986.

Boatright, who died June 9, was preceded in death by his first wife.

He is survived by his second wife, Flo Boatright; daughter Joy McKelroy and her husband, Girard; daughter Marsha Rapp and her husband, Sam; son Rolan Boatright and his wife, Linda; stepson Garay Holland and his wife, Pat; stepson Jerald Holland and his wife, Joan; and sister Ernestine Scott. Survivors also include six grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, six step-grandchildren and 17 step-great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at the South Park Funeral Home, 1310 N. Main in Pearland.


GORDON E. BOATRIGHT, 87, died Monday, June 9, 2008, in an Abilene Hospital . Gordon was born April 13, 1921, in San Angelo to Ernest and Birtie Payne Boatright. He was a veteran of World War II, serving in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific Theater. A Chief Petty Officer, he fought in several sea battles and was aboard two ships that were sunk in combat. He and his family were Houston residents for 40 years and former members of the Southeast Church of Christ. He was a machinist for NASA for 21 years and made many components used on the Gemini and Apollo space vehicles. He retired in 1986. After the death of his wife Nancy, he later married Florence Holland Boatright of Tuscola, Texas where they resided until his death. He was an active member of the South Taylor County Lions Club. Preceding him in death were his parents; his first wife, Nancy Burger Boatright; and three brothers, Calvin Boatright, Lyndal Boatright and Kyle Boatright.

Survivors include his wife, Flo Boatright of Tuscola; daughters, Joy McKelroy and husband Girard of Sugar Land; Marsha Rapp and husband Sam of Houston; son, Rolan Boatright and wife Linda of Houston; two stepsons, Garay Holland and wife Pat of Bee Branch, Ak., Jerald Holland and wife Joan of Fernandina Beach, FL.; one sister, Ernestine Scott of San Angelo; six grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; six step-grandchildren; 17 step-great-grandchildren; and many other relatives and friends. Memorial service will be held Saturday, June 28 at 1:30PM, at the South Park Funeral Home, 1310 N. Main Street , Pearland , Texas . No formal visitation is planned.
