NASA has a beautiful eulogy:

Bean, the lunar module pilot on Apollo 12 and commander of the second crewed Skylab mission, died in Houston on Saturday, May 26, 2018.

“Alan Bean once said ‘I have the nicest life in the world,’" said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. “It’s a comforting sentiment to recall as we mourn his passing.”
