Terrible news. I met him a few times and he seemed like a great guy. That is way too young.

I had the privilege and honor of meeting him several years ago in Salt Lake City. He was very nice and accommodating. R.I.P.

I am shocked. Rick was a very humble man who did some great things. Way too young.

In shock and disbelief I had to read this morning about the death of Rick Searfoss.

I met Rick at the ASE Planetary Conngress in Cologne, Germany in July 2013.

We talked about a book on Spacelab, that we at the Space History Society Bremen wrote. He had an absolutely interest in the book and he took the time during the session to look into the book. Afterwards we talked about his two Space Shuttle missions with the pressurized Spacelab module (STS-58 and STS-90). Rick Searfoss signed several items for me and gave me two business cards. One was from XCOR. I held them in my hands at the weekend because I wanted to write to him a letter.

His book "Liftoff: An Astronaut Commander's Countdown For Purpose Powered Leadership" is a fantastic book about leadership technics and skills he learned during his years as military pilot and pilot astronaut.

My thoughts are with his family.

R.I.P. Rick Searfoss.

Very sad. I had the privilege of meeting him in Northampton in 2001 and again at Heathrow in 2015, where he gave an inspirational talk, both times thanks to Autographica.

RIP.

Curt Newport and I sat next to Rick in DC in 2003. He was very easy to talk to about the USAF and Spacelab. Such a nice guy. This is so sad. Our family's condolences to his family.
