Conservative talk legend Rush Hudson Limbaugh III was honorably laid to rest Wednesday in a private ceremony at Bellefontaine Cemetery in St Louis with immediate family members in attendance.
Limbaugh was taken to his final resting place by a horse-drawn carriage with approximately 40 family members and dignitaries waiting for him.
Although he was expected to be buried in his hometown of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Limbaugh is now at rest alongside some of St. Louis's most famous residents. The historic Bellefontaine Cemetery is the final resting place of historical icons such as explorer William Clark, airport founder Albert Lambert, and beer tycoon Adolphus Busch, among others.
After a year-long battle with advanced lung cancer, Limbaugh died at age 70 on February 17. According to the Limbaugh family, additional celebrations of Rush's life will take place both virtually and in his home town.
