May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived. -- Your friends with Experience Imagine....

Dr. Massenberg was one in ten million---a great man, a heroic patriot for his country in war, a wonderful colleague of mine at NASA, and in our last years together a great boss. His contributions to NASA were so many in the field of education---K-12, high school and college---that a book could be written about them. I miss him greatly and add my sorrow to that of his loving family.

My sincere sympathies to the family. Dean Massenberg was the one that made sure I got home safely when my mother passed my freshmen year and was a dear frat brother.

I just received the sad news on the passing of Dr.Massenberg. I met in 1970 while I was a student at Hampton Institute. Shortly there after we developed a friendship that lasted through the years. He came to know my family. My wife and I often reflect back on the summers we spent sailing and fishing with him on his boat. Sam was a man who wore many hats during his lifetime. May GOD continue to Bless and keep the Massenberg family in his Heavenly Arms.

Col. Massenberg was, without a doubt, the singularly and most significant individual who prepared me for my life in the US Air Force. There was not a day that passed for me that I wasn't reminded of his wise counsel and advice. I will forever be greatful to him for "getting me ready" for what he knew lie ahead for all of us who were under his tutilage. My deepest sympathies to the Family. May God bless you and may his grace and mercy surround you during this time of sorrow. Grace to you and peace~~~QJSmithJR, Fredericksburg, Va.

Our condolences and deepest regrets go out to the Massenberg family. We hope that the love of friends and the wonderful memories of a life well lived will comfort you and bring you to brighter days. Col. Massenberg was my Professor of Aerospace Studies at NCA&T and I learned to fly, in part, because of his help. I will never forget him. Class of '68!
