R.C. Hooker, 1945-2009

Posted By on Tue, Sep 22, 2009 at 9:30 AM

R.C. Hooker, who co-authored the Indy's current feature on natural burial, died last night in his Somers home. He was 64.

Hooker was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer over the summer and given six months to live. He quickly researched his funeral options before settling on the relatively new trend of returning naturally to the earth in an environmentally friendly cemetery. He'll be buried tonight at 5 p.m. at Natural Cemeteries.
