Two weeks after his shocking death from cardiac arrest at age 66, Tom Petty was laid to rest in a private ceremony in Pacific Palisades, California, on Monday (Oct. 16).
The Rock Hall of Famer’s daughter AnnaKim Violette posted a series of Instagram moments chronicling the funeral at the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine, the same temple and meditation garden where Petty’s good friend former Beatles member George Harrison was laid to rest in 2001.
In one touching picture, AnnaKim wrote “the dark of the sun we will stand together,” beneath a black and white picture of Petty on a stand above a flower arrangement.
She also posted a picture with her sister, Adria Petty, with the caption, “We care about each other and love our bad ass father.” Other images from the ceremony and some of her dad’s lyrics.
A spokesperson for Petty confirmed the details of the funeral and said it was followed by a celebration of life with friends and colleagues.
