'Breaking Bad's' Walter White Gets Obituary in Albuquerque Newspaper

“In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a drug abuse prevention charity of your choice”

“Breaking Bad” fans paid tribute to their favorite deceased fictional character on Friday, placing a paid obituary in an Albuquerque newspaper to mourn his death.

A group spearheaded by an area high school teacher (who was quick to point out that he does not teach chemistry) got the death notice placed on page A4 of the Albuquerque Journal.

“White, Walter,” the obituary reads. “aka “Heisenberg,” 52, of Albuquerque, died after a long battle with lung cancer, and a gunshot wound.”

“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; son Walter “Flynn” Jr.; and daughter Holly. 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.”

      Don't blame her for your failing. You should have watched it sooner or have been totally unplugged. You yourself said it, it's been 5 days.

    • Doug

      Same for me. I was avoiding all social media as I live in Paris and couldn't watch them live and this article's title completely ruined it, no “spoiler alert” or anything, and no apology either?

  • Karen

    Here's an appropriate obit for Walter “Here lies an asshole who didn't die soon enough, now he's dead of lead poisoning and pole up his bum”.
