American Hero Neil Armstrong dead at age 82

Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon and today he rests among the stars.

American astronaut, Neil Armstrong, passed away today at the age of 82. Armstrong reportedly have been having difficulties after a heart surgery a few weeks ago.

“We are heartbroken to share the news that Neil Armstrong has passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures,” Armstrong’s family said in a statement. The Ohio native, who retired from Space Flight shortly after the Apollo launch to the moon, remained close with NASA throughout the years. It was Armstrong’, “That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind,” that every American can say with pride. Neil spent 2 hours and 32 minutes on the moon that day.

Neil’s family asked when you remember this hero. “Next time you walk outside on clear night & see moon smiling down at you, think of Neil & give him a wink.”

Rest in Peace, Neil Armstrong. Thank you for your service to this country.
