Breaking Bad, Walter White Obit

Albuquerque Journal

Breaking Bad fans, this is awesome!

In honor of the hit show's big series finale this past Sunday, Breaking Bad fans sad to see the hit show go have placed an obituary for Bryan Cranston's character Walter White (who passed away in the finale) in a local New Mexico newspaper.

"Walter White aka ‘Heisenberg,' 52, of Albuquerque, died Sunday after a long battle with lung cancer and a gunshot wound," reads the obit, which can be found on page A4 of today's Albuquerque Journal. "A co-founder of Gray Matter, White was a research chemist who taught high school chemistry, and later founded a meth manufacturing empire."

"He is survived by his wife, Skyler Lambert; song Walter 'Flynn' Jr.; and daughter Holly," the ad continues. "A private memorial was held by his family. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a drug abuse prevention charity of your choice. He will be greatly missed."

Local Breaking Bad fan David Layman, who helped pay for the obit, told the paper, "I've been a humongous Breaking Bad fan since the beginning. I was actually in the pilot, and putting the obit in the paper was fitting, because the series was based in Albuquerque and it provides some of us some closure."

"Of course, there are a lot of us sad to see the show and Walt go," Layman added. "But being able to see that part of Albuquerque and the local talent was wonderful, and many of us could feel some pride."

10.3 million viewers tuned in to the B.B. finale on Sunday to say goodbye to the hit series after five seasons.
