I had the pleasure to meet "Dex" in Titusville a number of years ago when he was the guest speaker at Titusville's annual Astronaut Memorial Ceremony.

He was kind and gracious to all who wanted to meet him, shake his hand and get an autograph. I asked him about being the son of a famous Dad.

His loss is especially tragic and his family will be in my prayers.

Same here. It's tragic to see him unexpectedly pass away so soon after leaving NASA. He should have had many great years still ahead of him.

My sympathies to his friends and family. This will be especially hard for his sons, who were involved in the accident. I hope they can heal both physically and mentally from this accident.
