When Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry died in 1991, portions of his cremated ashes were later sent to space to honor his memory.

Never knew that, maybe the aliens will find him and rebuild him from some left over dna, you never know.

I'd just be happy to be shot out of a cannon, Hunter S. Thompson style! A space funeral is much classier, though.

Really fitting. That's what the funeral should be like: symbolic.
