Jerry Garcia

Born: 1942-08-01 - Died: 1995-08-09
Cause of Death:
Heart Attack

Death Summary: Garcia died of a heart attack in his room at a rehabilitation clinic. His weight, sleep apnea, and his addictions to drugs and tobacco likely played parts in his death.

He had a private funeral at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Belvedere and a public memorial at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.

Jerry's body was cremated and his ashes were separated with part scattered in the San Francisco Bay and the rest in the Ganges River in India.

Who was Jerry Garcia : Jerome John "Jerry" Garcia was a singer/songwriter/guitarist best known as the frontman of The Grateful Dead.

Jerry also had a number of side projects that included: Old and in the Way, Legion of Mary, and the Jerry Garcia Band.

The Grateful Dead gained a ridiculous cult status that could perhaps actually be called a "cult" as legions of fans (stereotypically drugged out) followed them everywhere they went, getting high and enjoying the music.
