The first man to step foot on the Moon has died. RIP Neil, you will long be remembered for achieving one of man's greatest accomplishments.

R.I.P. Neil

His family's statement Saturday made a simple request for anyone who wanted to remember him:

"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."

One of the all time greats.
A real gent, and so humble with it all.
