NASA Legend Dale Myers Dies at 93; Helped Save Apollo 13, Times of San Diego

"Dale Myers, a famed NASA administrator who helped save the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission and resurrect the space shuttle program after the 1986 Challenger disaster, has died at his retirement home in La Costa. Myers was 93 when he died May 19 at La Costa Glen, his home for 10 years. But he had lived intermittently in Leucadia since 1962, where he had a vacation home, said Janet Westling of San Marcos, one of his two daughters. "He loved being independent," Westling told Times of San Diego. "He didn't stop driving, and was very happy and alive to the day he died. Friends of his say, 'We all want to go that way.'"
