ALBUQUERQUE, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Fans of AMC's concluded TV series "Breaking Bad" mourned the loss of their favorite program with a paid obituary in the Albuquerque Journal.

David Layman of Los Lunas, N.M., said he and his fellow members of the Facebook group "Unofficial Breaking Bad Fan Tour" were inspired by Sunday night's series finale to take out a paid obituary in the Journal for main character Walter White, who met his demise in the closing moments of the show, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

"I've been a humongous 'Breaking Bad' fan since the beginning," Layman said. "I was actually in the pilot, and putting the obit in the paper was fitting, because the series was based in Albuquerque and it provides some of us some closure."

"Of course, there are a lot of us sad to see the show and Walt go," he said. "But being able to see that part of Albuquerque and the local talent was wonderful, and many of us could feel some pride."

The obituary reads: "WHITE, WALTER. Aka 'Heisenberg,' 52, Albuquerque, died Sunday after a long battle with lung cancer and a gunshot wound. A co-founder of Gray Matter, White was a research chemist who taught high school chemistry and later founded a meth manufacturing empire. He is survived by his wife, Skyler Lambert; son Walter 'Flynn' Jr.; and daughter Holly. A private memorial was held by his family. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a drug abuse prevention charity of your choice. He will be greatly missed."
