Remembering David Beverly

NASA Johnson Space Center to Hold Memorial for David Beverly

"NASA's Johnson Space Center will hold a memorial at 10 a.m. CDT Wednesday, April 25, to honor senior avionics systems engineer David Beverly, who was killed in a shooting incident at the center on Friday, April 20."

Family Remembers Broken Arrow Graduate Killed in NASA Shooting, KOTV

"There is a Tulsa connection to the latest shocking case of violence in the workplace. Memorial services are set for an engineer shot and killed while working at NASA in Houston. Sixty-two- year-old David Beverly is a Broken Arrow graduate, who has family and friends in the Tulsa area. He's being remembered for his strength and for being an encouragement to others."

Editor's note: Hmmm ... Broken Arrow High School, Oklahoma, David Beverly's high school. Broken Bow, Oklahoma, small town featured in the opening scene of the first episode of Star Trek Enterprise - wherein misunderstandings lead to a shooting. Reality vs fiction. I know there is no connection, but I cannot shake the irony. Hopefully, David Beverly's name will find its way to a place of honor somewhere in our solar system - a place humans will one day visit and recall who he was and what he did. Those Mars Rovers certainly seem to be regularly discovering things which have been given names ...
