Walter Lambert — née White, née Heisenberg — was laid to rest in Albuquerque this week (at least, in the Albuquerque Journal) after his TV death on Sunday.

A group of “Breaking Bad” fans penned an obituary in the Albuquerque Journal on Friday for the series’ main character after he died from “a long battle with lung cancer, and a gunshot wound.”

“I’ve been a humongous ‘Breaking Bad’ fan since the beginning,” Layman told the Journal. “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.”
