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.
