After someone passes away, most people will say, “At least he’s in a better place.”  That’s probably not the case for Hugh Hefner, a man whose life was coveted by many a teenage boy.  The infamous founder of Playboy Magazine, devastated bunnies and humans when news was released that he passed away last Wednesday on September 27. Most would argue that the fun-loving soul had a wonderful life and used all of his 91 years to fulfill his dreams.

In 2014, when I was on a tour in Hollywood, our tour guide stopped and got Hefner’s attention; he gave us a bright smile and waved at the tour bus. Even through that very small and brief interaction I had with him a few years ago, I could tell that he was a happy soul, there to make people enjoy their lives just a little more.

Hefner’s son and Chief Creative Officer of Playboy Enterprises, Cooper Hefner stated, “My father lived an exceptional and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights, and sexual freedom.” He also added, “He defined a lifestyle and ethos that lie at the heart of the Playboy brand, one of the most recognizable and enduring in history. He will be greatly missed by many, including his wife Crystal, my sister Christie and my brothers David and Marston and all of us at Playboy Enterprises.”

His family won’t be the only one to miss him, of course. Everyone at Playboy is mourning the loss of their wonderful boss who brought them so many laughs and a job throughout the years. The company commented that Hefner “peacefully passed away from natural causes at his home, The Playboy Mansion, surrounded by loved ones,” which is how most of us hope to spend our last hours.

Hefner’s final resting place will be in a mausoleum drawer in Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, California, right next to the one and only Marilyn Monroe.
