Update: Hunter S. Thompson to be Shot From Cannon

February 23, 2005

The bereaved family of Hunter S. Thompson may fulfill the author’s wish of having his ashes shot from a cannon. Colorado fireworks company owner Marc Williams is hoping to give the late writer the sendoff he deserves: a 600 foot canopy of light and color.

“If you were going to light up a flash-bomb worthy of Hunter S. Thompson, you’d want to make it an earth-shaker,” Williams said.

Thompson’s wife and son are weighing their options.
