For a man to walk on the Moon and have absolutely no ego must be unique.

RIP to a Gentleman, Artist and Astronaut (in that order)

I had the honor of meeting Capt. Bean this past November... we've lost a great person... so sad.

Very sad news. I was fortunate to meet him twice and both times he willingly gave me time. An inspirational speaker and such a pleasant and friendly personality. What an amazing life he had. RIP.

Gutted was really hoping to meet Alan one day.

Another true Legend gone. R.I.P Alan Bean.

I interviewed Alan Bean while I was writing a piece marking the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing in 2009. He was one of the kindest and most giving souls I have met on this planet.

He actually called me at work on a Sunday night. I nearly fell out of my chair. A few months later, I drove two-and-a-half hours in the pouring rain to meet him in person in Connecticut on the 40th anniversary of his Apollo 12 launch.

It was during this meeting that he signed my copy of his book, "To Paul, Fellow artist ✫ Alan Bean." I was gobsmacked, and he told me, "You work in words, and I work in oils." What a guy. Goodspeed Capt. Bean.

I first meet Capt. Bean on the 15th anniversary of the first lunar landing in 1984. At all events that I have attended, which he was present at, he always acknowledged me and always take time to talk with me. A true gentleman, he truly will be missed.

Alan, thank you for all your moments that you shared with me. I remember days in Washington when you exhibited your works, I remember the spaghetti eaten together in London, I remember the ice cream eaten together on Houston, I remember and I can not forget. Thank's my friend. God bless you.

I’m sad, but smiling thinking about Dick, Pete and Al having a drink together right now.
