Bradley Nowell’s death

Troy Dendekker’s first husband and her claim to fame were pronounced dead on the 25th of May in 1996 from what was considered a heroin overdose. It is not news that musicians often engage in the use of hard drugs but in the case of Bradley Nowell, it was the culmination of an affinity to drugs that started since he was a teenager.

Although the birth of his son with Troy Dendekker drove him to quit the habit, he was unable to shake off the addiction entirely and succumbed to it, a week after getting married. He was cremated with a headstone placed for him at Westminster Memorial in California. His ashes were spread in Surfside, California.
