I will missed you. Rest in Peace.

I put this on fb today and was encouraged to pass it on to you.

Although my degree was in agricultural economics, the meandering course of life that God puts us on brought me for a brief time working at Johnson Space Center in the astronaut office (CB). My first boss there was an unflown pilot named Willie McCool. His background was in A-6s and he bad been to Pax river. He had all the credentials of a right stuff test pilot/astronaut. However, in personal demeanor, he was like a camp counselor. He actually wore flip-flops and a tie to work once. He got little-kid excited over the work we were doing (redesigning the Space Shuttle Cockpit). He would gladly take me and my cohort Tammy Walters to lunch just because he was a super nice guy.

His attitude on life is reflected in a story he told me once. He had a brief regarding the cockpit redesign that he had to give at HQ in Washington. He was getting his laptop set up in front of all the big wigs and his computer came on the display as he hooked up. What he wasn't ready for is that he had been playing Warcraft or some such thing with his son earlier in the week and that was what he ended up starting his presentation with. Although slightly embarrassed, he was happy to tell this story on himself. That was who he was.

I met some great people and some great astronauts at NASA, but I can say with all honesty, that Willie was one of the best people I worked with and for. He was wrote me a recommendation letter for Army commission and through his invitation, I got to take my dad (a long time space program engineer) to his launch...to a mission that never landed.

RIP Willie McCool (23 September 1961- 1 February 2003) You are missed

Prayers go out to the surviving family and friends may the God of comfort continue to bless you and yours especially after such a tragic loss. Please accept my deepest sympathies. 2 Cor. 1:2,3.

I greatly admire Willie McCool. I aspire to be like him. I am confident that he is in heaven, eternally happy. I hope to meet him after my death.
