Cash Family Plans Private Funeral

Johnny Cash’s funeral will be private, although a public memorial service is being planned. Lou Robin, Cash’s longtime manager, said the decision for the private funeral service and visitation was made “in honor of the Cash family’s privacy during these times.” In a written statement, the Cash family said, “The family of Johnny Cash, in this sad hour, is greatly comforted by the outpouring of love and respect for his remarkable life. We also take solace in the knowledge that he is again reunited with his dearest companion, June. Our lives, and indeed the entire planet, will forever feel the emptiness of his loss, but his music and the greatness of his spirit will endure.” Flowers may be sent to: Hendersonville Funeral Home, 353 Johnny Cash Parkway, Hendersonville, TN 37075. Memorial donations are being accepted at: SOS Children Villages USA, 1317 F Street NW, #550, Washington, DC 20004. No date has been set for the memorial service.
