About Neil Armstrong
Neil Alden Armstrong (born August 5, 1930) is an American former astronaut, test pilot, aerospace engineer, university professor, United States Naval Aviator, and the first person to set foot upon the Moon.
Neil Armstrong was born on August 5, 1930 in Wapakoneta, Ohio, to Viola Louise Engel and Stephen Koenig Armstrong, an auditor for the Ohio state government. The family moved around the state repeatedly in the 15 years following Armstrong's birth, living in 20 different towns. He had two younger siblings, June and Dean and was of Scots-Irish and German descent.
Armstrong's first wife, Janet, divorced him in 1994, after 38 years of marriage. He had met his second wife, Carol Held Knight, in 1992 at a golf tournament. They were married on June 12, 1994, in Ohio, and then had a second ceremony, at San Ysidro Ranch, in California.
Armstrong, who had just turned 82, underwent surgery on August 7, 2012, to relieve blocked coronary arteries. He died on August 25, 2012, at a hospital in Columbus, Ohio, from complications following that surgery.
