My wife and I are speechless! Colonel Pogue has always been a sweet, kind-hearted, and generous man that I was fortunate enough to know and work with. Rest forever, Bill, in your heavenly "Space" home high above us all. He will be missed terribly and our sincere condolences go out to his family.

I was lucky enough to meet Col. Pogue on several occasions at KSC, and he was always gracious and generous. A true fine gentleman.

Back in the day I had a couple of encounters with Col. Pogue when working TDY at Ellington AFB on T-38 avionics systems. I later crossed paths with him at another flight line. Very warm, friendly and genuinely great man to talk with. He was very knowledgeable in what we were doing in the cockpits and I learned some things from him.A great loss to his family and friends. RIP.

I was shocked and saddened by this terrible news. Bill was a great pilot, gentleman and author who will be sorely missed by all. His participation in the record breaking Skylab 4 mission is still regarded as one of the milestones of space history.

Several cosmonauts including Valeri Polyakov have told me how important the work from Skylab 4 was in planning their own long missions on Salyut.

I met Bill and spoke with him on the phone with regard to my work on the Skylab programme and Jerry Carr biography 84 Days. His input and explanation of procedures and terms was essential for both titles.

His own books have a pride of place on my shelves, and it is with great personal sadness that I write these few words.

Rest in peace Bill on your next long flight to the stars...

OMG; I met Pogue along time ago at the Kennedy Space Center during my vacation in 2004.

I can't believe he's gone.
