Harry Liston of Arlington, Texas, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, April 5, 2022, after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s.
Harry was born in 1940 to parents Curtis and Elizabeth Liston of Terrell, Texas. He graduated from Texas A&M University in 1963 with a degree in electrical engineering. In 1965, he married Judith Hargrove of Wills Point, Texas. For 35 years, he worked in airplane and missile design at General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin and was proud to call himself a rocket scientist.
Harry loved the Lord and was a dedicated member of Trinity United Methodist Church of Arlington, Texas, serving with the Stephen Ministry and the Emmaus walk. He also enjoyed being involved with community theater, appearing in The Promise in Glen Rose and many shows at Artisan and other local theaters.
Harry joins his parents and his older brothers Tom and Dick in Heaven. He is survived by his wife, Judy, and many loving family members, including his sister Lillian Lynch, daughters Laura Holm (Tom) and Leslie Coker (Max), four grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life service will be held at Trinity UMC on Monday, April 11, at 1pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Trinity’s Stephen Ministry or Arlington Urban Ministries.
The family would like to offer heartfelt thanks to Meadowbrook Memory Care and AlevCare Hospice for their love, care, and support.

  1. So many happy memories of Liston/Hogan family gatherings. My thoughts and prayers for Judy and the family.

  2. Judy and family,
    Ron and I have learned about the ultimate healing that comes when a loved one is finally released from the earthly travails. Indeed, the loss hurts, but the relief that comes. We learned to allow ourselves to be grateful for the relief.
    Blessings to you and your family in this difficult time.
    Cathy Brown

  3. Judy,
    We thought highly of Harry, and we really hated to hear of his passing. It’s wonderful that he found an enjoyable avocation and was able to express himself through acting. Our prayers go out to you and your family.
    Jon and Mary Estes

  4. Judy, I can speak for the rest of the members of Harry’s outfit in the Corps of Cadets (B-2) in saying that he was a great addition to the class of ’63 Buzzards (our outfit name). He had a great sense of humor and was a really neat guy to be around. I have passed along the news of his passing to all of the outfit members. We are all saddened for your loss as well as our loss of a great friend and “Ole Army Aggie Buddy”. Personally speaking, as a former Emmaus “Walker” Harry is surely in close council with Jesus Christ. He is at peace.
    We love you Harry

  5. Judy, I am greatly saddened by Harry’s passing. As a member of “B-2 Buzzard Company” Class of “63, I have many great memories of Harry and many other members of our class. I am sure many of our Aggie classmates will also be saddened by his passing. Our prayers and thoughts will be with you. May God be with you and your family during this sorrowful time.

  6. Judy, blessings and sweet thoughts to all you family. Harry and I go back a long way from Aggie freshman to church work at Trinity. Find some Peace today😇

  7. To Judy and and all your sweet family thoughts and prayers are with you. Harry and I go way back to being Aggie freshman to actively working at Trinity Church. What a special guy Harry was. Blessings.

  8. Judy,
    Harry was my roommate and fellow EE Major at A&M. Many fond memories of our times there. We pray that the Lord will give you comfort and peace as he has me after the recent passing of my wife in knowing that they both are celebrating with Jesus.

    Texas A&M Class of 63 and fellow B2 “Buzzard”

  9. Judy,
    So sorry to hear of Harry’s passing. This year would be the 63rd year of knowing him.
    So glad I got to to see him at the 50th Reunion, and my Judy got to meet him and you.
    You will be in my thoughts and prayers as Harry has been over the last several years.
    Heaven is even a sweeter place now. May he Rest In Peace.
    God bless you,
    Karl Miller
    Buzzard B-2 Brother

  11. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any method you’ll be able to take away me from that service? Thanks!
