The memories have faded.

Half a century after playing a key role in the development of the Saturn V rocket engine — which sent Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins to the moon 50 years ago today — Bill Goode admits the years have caught up to him.

“It’s been so long, that a lot is just out of my memory,” said Goode, 94, who resides at Heartland Meadows Residential Care in Iola. “I remember it was a real exciting time.”
