I was born in 1959. John Glenn was one of my first childhood heroes (right there next to Superman). This was a man who clearly knew how to live his life. Godspeed indeed.
Rest in Peace John Glenn.

My family played a key role in the NASA moon missions. I never met John Glenn, but he was always a personal hero of mine, and was one of many reasons why I wanted to be an astronaut, until I lost my 20/20 vision.

 

I especially admired the risk he took late in life to go up in space so we can learn how it affects an aging body.

We will most likely never see again someone who was so diverse and excelled at everything he did. Engineer, astronaut, then US Senator. RIP sir.

I was born in 1958, and lived through much of what John Glenn detailed in his 2000 autobiography. Quite a life he had. Certainly someone I've always admired.

 

RIP, John Glenn !

Another hero gone. He was one of our best.

 

I played an artist gig on the USS Intrepid for Glenn and the Joint Chiefs. The artist sat next to Mrs. Glenn and engaged her in conversation. He found out that she was a church organist. He said to her, "Would you believe our piano player was a church organist?" "No," she said. Yeah, well.

 

Alan Sheppard may have been first, but I'll always associate John Glenn with being the face and heart of the space program.

Thank you JG!

 

If you have never read The Right Stuff, I highly recommend it.The book is much better than the movie.
