Jimi died on September 18, 1970 while touring through London, England. When news of the tragedy made its way to James “Al” Hendrix, (Jimi’s father) back in the United States, the plans for a lasting memorial began to take shape.
Al Hendrix requested that Jimi’s body be brought back to his birthplace of Seattle, Washington so that a burial at a new family plot, located at Greenwood Memorial Park in Renton could be performed.
