Breaking Bad's Walter White Funeral with Jackamoe Buzzell

"Walter White's funeral" was held in at Sunset Memorial Park in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Saturday October 19, 2013, about a month after the airing of "Felina".[1]

It was a fundraiser benefitting Albuquerque’s Health Care for the Homeless for and drew around 200 "mourners" and raised $17,000.[2]

The event was organized by Vernon’s Steakhouse and Jackamoe Buzzell, who would later be cast as Dave Brightbill in Better Call Saul. The eulogy was delivered by set decorator Michael Flowers and other speakers included David House, who appeared in character as Dr. Delcavoli, and several fans who acted as people who knew Walt in his life.

A container containing Walt's "ashes" and some fan memorabilia was laid to rest in the ground and a headstone placed in the park, but was later removed due to public outcry.[3] Afterwards a reception was held at Vernon's Steakhouse, with all proceeds going to charity as well. The event was live streamed on YouTube.

The event was not received positively by all, however. Over 1000 people who actually had family members buried at the cemetery signed a petition calling for the headstone to be removed.[4]
