Neil Armstrong Has Died! First Man On The Moon Missed By All!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

neil armstrong died

How unbelievably sad!!

Neil Armstrong, the American astronaut who made the epic "one small step" on the moon back in 1969, has died.

His family has yet to confirm when or where he died.

But they will say he passed away due to "complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures."

In an extremely beautiful statement, they say:

"We are heartbroken to share the news that Neil Armstrong has passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures. Neil was our loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend.

Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink."

He was 82.

Armstrong was a hero and his legacy will live on forever.

Rest in peace, Neil…

He maybe the second man to walk on the moon, but Lois Driggs Cannon is the third woman to be stripped of the title Mrs. Buzz Aldrin.

Buzz officially filed for a divorce yesterday, stating that the couple separated two days ago and cites "irreconcilable differences" as the cause. The two have been married since Valentine's Day 1988.

Sad! He's kind of old to be dating again, but if he decides he's ready, the ladies will surely line up their walkers to be wife #4!
