When a record-breaking number of viewers tuned in to the finale episode of Breaking Bad, fans also said their final goodbyes to Walter White, the chemistry teacher turned drug dealer portrayed by Bryan Cranston.

Walt’s battle came to an end after only two years in the show’s reality, although fans watched his epic adventures unfold over the past six years—and some viewers grew particularly attached to the character.

So one fan decided to pay tribute to Walter—also known on the streets as Heisenberg—with an obituary in a local Albuquerque newspaper, the Albuquerque Journal.

David Layman, the ABQ resident who put the obituary—shown below—in the paper said that he was a huge fan since the beginning, having even appeared in the pilot episode.

“Putting the obit in the paper was fitting,” he told the Journal. “Because the series was based in Albuquerque and it provides some of us some closure.”
