That's so sad. He was one of the first Apollo guys I met in 2012. God bless.

A good man; always kind and gracious. He will be missed here on the Florida Space Coast and I recall many years ago that Capt. Gordon was kind enough to arrange a private visit/signing with me, something that I will always remember and cherish.

I was traveling back from Cocoa Beach and I just found out now. I've met him in 2016 at the Autograph Show. He was a genuinely super nice guy.

RIP.

Dick was an original. He will be sorely missed. I can see his smile.

In 2011, I had the privilege of Dick attending a dinner party at my home.

Dick was the first astronaut Julie (Mrs OWL) cooked dinner for. It was a relaxed and jovial evening with Dick recounting many stories some of which that have not been published.

He was a wonderful man with much humility and a great sense of humour. He will surely be missed by all. RIP Dick.

Harrison Schmitt has published a tribute to Richard Gordon on his website.
Dick Gordon's intelligence, skill, discipline and mentorship helped to prepare me for the challenges of being the Lunar Module Pilot on Apollo 17. I will be forever grateful for his guidance, patience and good humor. He will be missed, greatly.

Goodbye Captain. Glad I had a chance to meet him at the 2013 Astronaut Scholarship Fundraiser. So sad that they're all going now. Always feel bit of anxiety checking collectSPACE news nowadays.

Yet another of the very best now gone. I'm glad I had the chance to meet this very genuine man with such a sense of humor. So sad.
