Welp, at least I noticed he included orange juice and sleep into his daily routine, so that’s something.
Basically, Hunter did things his own way, all the way until he took his life at the age of 67. He even had unique plans for his ashes, which he entrusted Johnny Depp to carry out. His ashes were fired from a cannon placed atop a 153-foot tower in the shape of a double-thumbed fist clutching a peyote button. Is there any more fitting tribute to a man who lived his life by a different set of rules?
Among the celebrities and public figures at his funeral were John Kerry, Jack Nicholson, John Cusack, Bill Murray, Benicio del Toro, Sean Penn, Josh Hartnett, Ralph Steadman and more. “All I’m doing is trying to make sure his last wish comes true,” Depp said at the time. “I just want to send my pal out the way he wants to go out.”
