Obituary -- The Baltimore Sun, Baltimore, Maryland; Monday, 21 FEB 2005, p.A4 (Newspapers.com):

Hunter S. Thompson, creator of 'gonzo journalism,' dies
------------------------------------------------------------------
'Fear and Loathing' writer commits suicide in home in the Aspen, Colo. area
-----------------------------
THE DENVER POST

ASPEN, Colo. -- Hunter Stockton Thompson, who coined the term "gonzo journalism" to describe the unique and furiously personal approach to reortage exemplified in his 1972 book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, died last night of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his Woody Creek home. He was 67, family members said.

Pitkin County Sheriff Bob Braudis, a friend of Thompson's, confirmed the death. Thompson's son, Juan, discovered his body yesterday evening. "Dr. Hunter S. Thompson took his life with a gunshot to the head. The family will provide more information about (a) memorial service shortly," Juan and Anita Thompson, Hunter Thompson's wife, said in a statement.

Countless fans strove to imitate Thompson's startlingly candid first-person accounts that described legally errant escapades fueled by drugs, alcohol and nicotine, yet he maintained a savagely private personal life.

He famously threatened to shoot trespassers, providing endless fodder for caroonist Garry Trudeau's protrayal of Thompson as the hard-living Duke, name after Raoul Duke, a character in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The book was made into a 1998 movie.

Thompson grew up in Louisville, Ky. He earned his high school diploma while in the Air Force. Thompson was still enlisted when he studied journalism at New York's Columbia University, and began his career at the Eglin Air Force Base newsletter while also working as a sportswriter for a local civilian paper. He later worked for Time magazine, the New York Helrald Tribune, the National Observer and The Nation.

Thompson married twice, first to Sandra Dawn Thompson Tarlo, with whom he had one son, Juan F. Thompson. He later married his assistant, Anita Thompson, a native of Fort Collins. Besides his wife and son, survivors include a grandson, William Thompson.



Biography (Findagrave.com):

Journalist and Author. Internationally recognized "Gonzo" journalist, he is best known for his 1972 classic "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas;" also credited with pioneering gonzo journalism - a style of writing that breaks traditional rules of news reporting and is purposefully slanted. His eccentric personality and personal adventures were the basis for his political and cultural criticism of the United States in the 1970s. Born in Louisville, Kentucky, he was known for an explosive writing style that employed "action verbs" to comically spin outlandish tales that are completely unbelievable, yet providing a unique viewpoint to accurately describe the underlying reality at hand. His stories became so colorfully contrived that they easily slipped into the realm of fiction, although the basic premise of the story was often accurate. Other books he wrote include: "Hell's Angels" (a non-fiction work that almost cost him his life), "The Proud Highway," and his most recent effort, "Hey Rube: Blood Sport, the Bush Doctrine, and The Downward Spiral of Dumbness."

Bio by: Fred Beisser.

Cause of death: Suicide. Per wikipedia.org:

At 5:42 pm on February 20, 2005, Thompson died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head at Owl Farm, his "fortified compound" in Woody Creek, Colorado. His son Juan, daughter-in-law Jennifer, and grandson were visiting for the weekend. His wife Anita, who was at the Aspen Club, was on the phone with him as he cocked the gun. According to the Aspen Daily News, Thompson asked her to come home to help him write his ESPN column, then set the receiver on the counter. Anita said she mistook the cocking of the gun for the sound of his typewriter keys and hung up as he fired. Will and Jennifer were in the next room when they heard the gunshot, but mistook the sound for a book falling and did not check on Thompson immediately. Juan Thompson found his father's body. According to the police report and Anita's cell phone records, he called the sheriff's office half an hour later, then walked outside and fired three shotgun blasts into the air to "mark the passing of his father". The police report stated that in Thompson's typewriter was a piece of paper with the date "Feb. 22 '05" and a single word, "counselor".

Thompson's inner circle told the press that he had been depressed and always found February a "gloomy" month, with football season over and the harsh Colorado winter weather. He was also upset over his advancing age and chronic medical problems, including a hip replacement; he would frequently mutter "This kid is getting old." Rolling Stone published what Doug Brinkley described as a suicide note written by Thompson to his wife, titled "Football Season Is Over". It read:

"No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun — for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your age. Relax — This won't hurt."

He was cremated in 2005 Ashes scattered on his Owl Farm estate at Woody Creek. Findagrave #10504755.
