Hunter Thompson departs with a bang

August 21, 2005

Doc Thompson got his final wish last night, his ashes blown into the night from atop a giant 15 story gonzo fist sculpture at the Owl Farm.

With a deafening boom, the ashes of Hunter S. Thompson were blown into the sky amid fireworks late Saturday as relatives and a star-studded crowd bid an irreverent farewell to the founder of “gonzo journalism.”

Like most everything in his life, he dealt with death on his own terms.

Mahalo, Doc.
