Barbara Bush Library Loses a Friend

Peggy Kruckemeyer and Paul Wahlberg

Longtime Houston Golf Association board member Paul Wahlberg passed away Monday (May 24) at the skilled nursing care facility where he had lived since the fall of 2004. Wahlberg served the HGA for over 50 years and was accorded the honor of "board member for life."  Wahlberg was a past Tournament Chairman of the Shell Houston Open (1970) and served for many years as the head of what was then known as the Charity Selection Committee for HGA. An architect by profession, Wahlberg became identified with the organization's penchant for community service and charitable giving.

Peggy Kruckemeyer, Past President of the Barbara Bush Library Friends, fondly remembers Paul’s involvement with the library. “Paul was a great friend of the Barbara Bush Library. The HGA's initial grant of $15,000 grew to $50,000 in grants plus thousands more through allowing the Friends to work at the Shell Houston Open and the Tournament of Champions. Paul was instrumental in naming the library meeting room after Earl Elliott. Most importantly, he was a great guy who treated our initial fundraising attempts as serious and worthy endeavors giving us the confidence and credibility to go on and raise hundreds of thousands for the Barbara Bush Library.”
