Well, he had a good run

In addition to his military career (including WWII combat flights), pioneering orbit, political service, and return to space in the shuttle Discovery, he was married to his high school sweetheart, who survives him, for a staggering 73 years. My thoughts go out to Anna Glenn, their children, and grandchildren, and other family in this difficult time.
