Montclair’s Man On the Moon, Buzz Aldrin, Marries at 93

Buzz Aldrin, Montclair’s man on the moon, celebrated his 93rd birthday by getting married to Dr. Anca Faur. Faur, 63, is the executive vice president of Buzz Aldrin Ventures LLC.

Aldrin announced the news on Twitter:

On my 93rd birthday & the day I will also be honored by Living Legends of Aviation I am pleased to announce that my longtime love Dr. Anca Faur & I have tied the knot. We were joined in holy matrimony in a small private ceremony in Los Angeles & are as excited as eloping teenagers

This is Aldrin’s fourth marriage. He is the lone surviving astronaut of the three that took part in the historic moonwalk on the Apollo 11 mission in 1969.

In 2013, Aldrin came back to his hometown of Montclair to receive a first ever key to the Township and a plaque at Montclair High School. In 2015, he visited middle school students at Mount Hebron and then returned for the renaming of the school to Buzz Aldrin Middle School in 2016.
