The South Bend Tribune reported that former Bendix engineer Raymond Joseph Black died Wednesday (Oct. 16). He was 78.
Hard-working and mathematically gifted, he joined the Bendix Aircraft Brake and Strut Division in 1955, where for forty years he was an expert in aircraft and spacecraft landing systems.

...he was instrumental in the design of the landing gear for the lunar module with his proof of quadrupedal landing gear systems for spacecraft. He also designed landing gear for the space shuttle and other commercial jets.

Thank you for pausing to remember my father.

Here is a picture of him holding a model of the lunar module.
