Contributor: timothygcross Created: 8 months ago Updated: 8 months ago

Remo was born on December 2nd 1935 to Edward and Donna Pyne. He was the oldest of all his siblings and as an adult the only active member of the Church in his family. He joined the army and when he came home married Gerene Backus in February of 1958. He started out as a milk man and later became a truck driver which he did for CF until he retired. They had 6 children, all girls. His passion in life was visiting the property that they co-owened with Gerene's brothers in Mount Pleasant. After he retired he would practically live there in the summer and fall until the snow came and he couldn't get up there anymore. We loved spending time together there as a family. When he wasn't on the mountain he was always tinkering around or fixing something. He even made a ranger type of thing that we called 'stretch' out of an old truck. We used to take it up to the mountain all the time and that is what he would drive when we went on four-wheeler rides. He almost always had a smile on his face and was so spontaneous and so much fun to have as a grandpa! I remember roasting hot dogs in the fire place in the winter time at their house with him. He always had to have a hot dog on sunday nights for dinner. He was so sweet and always looking for some way to help someone else. He died in May of 2004 of a cancerous brain tumor. He was in the hospital for a little over a month fighting the cancer and having many surgeries to try and fix it before he died. The day that he died we were actually supposed to be bringing him home and do home hospital care but that morning he was already gone. He was such an amazing example of love and service to all. He had such a great work ethic and I am proud to be his granddaughter.

Remo LeRoy Pyne was 22 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
