It's with a heavy heart that I share the passing of my dear friend, astronaut Paul Weitz. His daughter Cindy emailed and shared that he passed at home peacefully with her and Matt.

I'm heartbroken.

PJ was such a friendly and humorous guy. I know many of the cS members have spent time talking and joking with Paul over the years. We used to sit together a lot at the shows. I visited him twice in Flagstaff. We walked Sunset Crater once as he talked of his training there. He was always fun to listen to and be around. I sat and talked with Matt and Paul at the last Spacefest. He looked good.

He will be missed.

So sorry to hear this. I had a very in-depth conversation with him over a two day period in 2004 regarding the concept of leadership that has had me thinking ever since.

May you rest in peace, Sir.
